The Passage dive site is between the two islands of Gili Lawa Laut and Gili Lawa Darat. The current in the channel between the 2 islands can be strong and it is an excellent drift dive. The fish life, like everywhere when diving in the Komodo Islands, is abundant with turtle, sharks and even manta rays. The dive finishes in the shallow water in a super coral garden. The drift can be from west to east or the contrary depending of the current. A very good dive site to fly in the middle of thousands of fishes!
