Underwater directions: Follow the slope down and to the right keeping in contact with the wall. Descend to your chosen depth and follow the wall around the lagoon. Take your time to examine all the nooks and crannies as there are plenty of small lobsters and crabs hiding here. There are quite a few leopard gobies here as well. The walls are covered with thousands of tube worms. The deeper you go the worse the visibility will become.
