Uepi Island drops off into 50 meters of water at the Welcome Jetty and 2,000 meters at The Point. A fringing reef extends along Charapoana Passage and the ocean side of Uepi. Coral “gardens” are found at Uepi Point and Divers Bay. Charapoana Passage is a deep passage allowing water movement to and from Marovo Lagoon and the open ocean called “The Slot”. Despite this movement of water, the Channel provides a very safe area for snorkeling. Snorkeling access places are at: the wooden jetty (“Welcome” Jetty), the Dive Jetty, the Concrete Jetty and the Fig Tree Grotto.

An experienced snorkeler can easily snorkel from Inside Point to Uepi Point. All of the reef along the Channel is first class snorkeling. Hover amongst huge schools of fish, cruise past large gorgonian fans, check out the vase sponges, nudibranchs, feather stars, octopus and the never ending array of colorful tropical fish. Of particular interest is the clam garden at the wooden jetty (Welcome Jetty), lion fish and pink anemone around the Dive Jetty and beautiful coral gardens at Uepi Point. All of the above Uepi jetties have resident fish schools, each quite different from the other.

Other things to look for at the jetties are moray and snowflake eels, plus many small invertebrates in the cracks and holes. Because of the water movement there are times each day when the visibility will be less than perfect, however because of the water movement the variety of marine life is spectacular.
