Advice for diving Miyaru Kandu in Maldives

Miyaru Kandu is a fascinating channel dive - which is next to Alimatha Resort, another famous site. As usual, the dive plan will depend on whether the channel is outgoing or incoming. We had an incredible dive, with around 10-15 sharks - grey reef + white tips circling around and a manta ray coming down in the middle of them.
