Seasonal oceanic currents have forged channels from the open ocean into all the atolls making it one of the best drift diving experiences in the world. The waters of the atolls are rich in plankton enabling a diverse and abundant marine ecosystem to thrive. The nutrient-rich water feeds colourful sponges and soft corals which cling to the rock sides. There are well known cleaning stations where wrasse and shrimp service manta rays, and other large marine species.
