So named for Chief Luten , a legend in himself, ( feel free to visit Tibara, his home, and sit a spell and hear his stories), situated in a narrow arm of the passage, it is subject to currents, which, of course, bring a proliferation and variety of life. Gray reef sharks patrol the depths, while white and black tips guard their shallows. Fans abound on a series of ledges descending to 100’. Barracuda, Rainbow Runners, schools of surgeons are frequent visitors.
GREEN CORAL FOREST
This is, by any standards, a strange and fascinating dive. Also situated in the passage narrows, it, too, is subject to some strong currents. A broad shelf slanting gradually from 50-100 feet houses massive green Tubastrea hard corals. I can’t help but think of a Christmas Tree lot. The trees, in turn, shelter an unusual variety of fish, including 3 spot ( Blue-lipped) angels, 2 eyed and orange –banded Coralfish, Pixie Hawks and Scalefin Anthias.
