Big Rock is an unique place! It can be the best diving in Mauritius…. if there is a slight current running north-south… as it can also just be an average dive if there is no current. It is a known fact that the fish like current and will hover on top of steep wall, and wait for food to arrive. Bog rock is covered with Eagle rays when it is the case.
