One Tree Island – This is especially for divers focused on finding fish. The shallow site with generally good visibility, sits on a granite substrate, which is popular with moray eels and stingrays. Myriad reef fish and huge hump-head parrotfish are also common sight. If you’re observant, you might find the elusive ghost pipefish hanging upside down.
Trois Bancs – When divers reach these three granite-based reefs, they drift over steep drop offs, along vertical walls, under massive ledges and through small caves. The currents here can be strong, and they attract big pelagics, turtles and reef sharks. Whale sharks can also be found when they're in season.
North Island – It’s known for it’s fantastic coral reefs. Multiple pinnacles reach to the surface from a sandy bottom. The full cast of reef fish is fond of the site too, and divers regularly encounter whitetip reef sharks, stingrays and nurse sharks.
Napoleon – This is one of the best dives off Alphonse Island. It is covered in beautiful soft corals and an incredible amount of fish life. You can also find great macro and manta rays here.
Best Time to Dive - Diving is possible all year round but the best conditions are in April-May and October-November, when the seas are very calm. The water temperature can rise to 29ºC and offers excellent (up to 30 metres) visibility.
