I've never even heard of it but it sounds interesting. I look forward to reading your report in due course, Nigel.

Los Frailes is not far from Margarita and this is where I did my first ever dive and took my PADI OW! I was on holliday on Isla de Margarita and dived with Margarita Divers. I remember it vividly as it was one of my first experiences and loved it!

If memory serves, Venezuela has the Orinocco Flow (and all the uber-rich nutrients that run with it) coursing out into the sea - the same flow that creates the superb and varied diving conditions that we did in Tobago (just off the coast of Venezuela). It should be spectatular, and I'd very much like to read your report when you get back also.

Dive safe and enjoy.

Have a wicked time Nigel.  We are off to Tobago a week on Thursday so very excited now!!  If I get lost in any of the drifts, I might bump into you in Venezuela...

Look forward to hearing the tales when you get back.
