La Passe en S / S-shaped Passe

The S-shaped Passe is the flagship dive site of Mayotte. As the most dived site in the area, it has no less than 17 mooring lines so the boats do not damage the coral.

The odd shape of Longogori, its original name, comes from the geological history of Mayotte: most passes used to be river mouths... millions of years ago! This one is protected as a marine reserve since 1990 and fishing is stricly prohibited.

The diving is fit for all levels, from introductory dives in easy conditions to the experienced divers when the current pushes a bit harder... Lots of turtles and lionfish, maybe a few pelagic fish as you come out to the open. The site is also accessible for snorkelers. Do not miss it!
