Makadi Bay is reserve with a modest fabulous coral reefs and the possibility of encounters with barracuda, tuna and even bigger pelagic species. That's if you can tear your eyes away from the Oregonians and marine life that populate the caverns and ledges. The frequently strong currents often dictate drift dives. The protection coming with marine reserve status really pays off here with abundant marine life and great diving.
