The Small Pass is particularly for experienced divers. The Avatoru pass breaks into two channels separated by a little islet at the entrance of the lagoon. The one on the left, quiet wide and not really interesting from a scuba diving point of view and the one on the right, much smaller and rightfully dubbed the little pass. Our dive starts roughly in the middle of the pass on the right side when looking towards the lagoon and we then drift in the current into the narrowest part of the pass. The difficulty is not so much about the depth but rather about the fairly strong unsteady current – in general, the stream is always stronger in a narrow passage than in a wide one, given that the quantity of water that must go through in the same space of time is still the same. The purpose of this dive is to see the wonderful little grottos open in the very flank of the reef, especially when entering the lagoon.

The Small Pass is undoubtedly the most colorful dive experience, watching manta rays feeding themselves against the current and white tip sharks resting and quietly getting oxygen in the grottos. The dive ends in the calm waters of the lagoon.
