Dive Overview 

Offering a kaleidoscopic underwater world like no other, the island is dubbed as one of the world’s best dive destinations with its breathtaking underwater scenery of vibrant coral walls and the pristine, large sea animals in the crystal clear water where visibility is between 30 and 60 meters year-round. Hammerhead sharks, pygmy seahorses, Jacks and Barracudas as well as rare manta rays are among the unique marine lives here.

Dive Sites

  • Gorgonian Forest - One of the main areas of hammerhead sharks, its most beautiful feature is the dense forest-like formation of gorgonian sea fans that line the drop-off wall. Schooling fish large and small are abundant here and the hard corals are spectacular. Sponges of fantastic proportions grow along the walls and the sea whips spear the blue.
  • Crack Reef - A relaxing dive site with lots of reef activity and gravity-defying corals, spongers, sea-whips and sea-fans. The fish tumble down the walls side and then race back up the wall as if going to the surface for air. Turtle cruise indifferently along the steep walls and white-tip sharks drift by lazily. It's called Crack-Reef because the dive begins on a large vertical crack in the wall that starts at the surface and plummets to 40m+.
  • D’Wall - A vertical, straight-down free-fall, it is an amazing piece of nature with the drop-off starting in 1m of water and abruptly dropping into 2,000m of water. The wall plummets to the depths so mind your buoyancy and depth of control of a 40m limit. Schools of surgeons and jacks cascade down the face of the wall like a waterfall.
  • Dogtooth Lair - This is a one-in-a-million dive. It has all that one could wish for from large to small of both fish and corals. Turtle gently glide along, schools of fusiliers and surgeonfish swim by, and swirling horse-eye jacks move like 
  • twisters across the thick and healthy coral formations. There are overhangs and ledge to be explored. One can find stingrays asleep next to white-tip reef sharks.
  • Bird Island Sanctuary - The underwater wonder has some competition above water – Bird Island, where countless migratory birds seek refuge within the huge lagoon.
  • Navigator Lane - This is magnificent dive with an abundance of healthy corals, sea fans, whips and fantastic hard coral formations so dense that you cannot put your hands down without damaging the corals! The dive is one of spectacular color and breathtaking beauty. Hammerhead sharks are seen here on a regular basis and in great numbers.
  • Sharks' Cave - Start the dive on the edge of the drop off in 3m water and drift down the face to a sand ledge where Leopard sharks rest. Move slowly and carefully, you’ll be able to get close to them. Swimming past sea fans, whips and coral formations, you’ll see tuna and reef sharks glide by the come in close. You then find yourself in front of Sharks' Cave.
  • Snapper Ledge - Snapper Ledge is a safe and easy dive with magnificent corals and colorful reef fish. For photographers, it’s a good spot for wide-angle, macro and close-up, when the sun is directly on it. One can simply drift along with the current and relax-lah, as we say in Malaysia.
