GPS Point is a submerged sea bank just to the north of Banta Island. The strong currents here attract Barracuda, Dog Tooth Tuna, Spanish Mackerel, and Sharks. You can also find Eagle Rays passing by as well as Turtles feeding on the lush coral. At certain times of the year, the deeper water also provides opportunities to see Hammerhead Sharks.

This site is by no means for beginners, but even though currents can be huge near the surface they often are reduced with depth.
