Crack Reef
A relax-lah 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 surgeon fish 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.
LEARN MORE >
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.

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 a 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 colourful reel 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.

The Runway
The Runway is a breathtaking dive with deep vertical walls, gullies and crevasses. Reef fish swim vertically, an unusual sight that takes time to get used to. Schools of jacks cascade down the wall and large tunas swim by, on the lookout for a free meal. School of bait fish, fusiliers, and surgeon fish sparkle and glitter in the crystal clear water.
LEARN MORE >
The Tunnel
A hard coral-lovers dream and a beautiful night dive with its spectrum of colorful and dense marine corals including staghorn, plate, table mushroom and brain corals. An abundance of reed fish ranging from the anthias to travelers can be seen. Moray eels lie in cubby holes and gullies of the coral formations.
LEARN MORE >
The Valley
A gentle slope (10m-15m) with large formations of hard corals. Groupers, sweet-lips, large schools of surgeon fish and fusiliers roam the site and trigger fish have their nests here. Schools of barracudas and skinners swim in the area with the occasional reef shark cruising the breadth of the dive site.
LEARN MORE >
Wrasses Strip
Wrasses strip is one of the most eye-opening coral dives in the world. Hard and soft corals are on display in full Technicolor and unique formations, some so intricate that they resemble an English horticulture show. The fish each have their own little kingdom of coral that they seem to stand guard over. There are large coral bommies with small caverns and overhangs that are home to batfish, sweet lips and soldier fish.
LEARN MORE >
Wreck Point
Also an enjoyable snorkel site, there is a hard coral garden in the shallow, awash with tropical reef fish whose reflective colours dance about the dense hard corals in choreographed tranquility. On the drop-off, clusters of soft corals hang defying gravity. Over the edge, at 20m+ levels, there are barrel sponges, gorgonian fans, sea whips and an amazing view as the wall fades into the depths of the ocean.
