DID YOU KNOW THE POPULAR DIVE SITES?

 

Karang Nibong Laut 

The site comprises of a heap of tremendous rocks on a sandy territory. We found a considerable measure of bamboo sharks resting under these stones with some exceptionally decent nudibranchs. Look under the saucer like leather corals, there are constantly some moray eels stowing away there.


House Reef 

In the sandy areas you can find cuttlefish, octopus and moray eels. If you go diving, check out the resident black tip reef sharks at the southern end of the beach. This place is perfect for night dives.

 

Terumbu Kuning (Yellow Reef)

A rocky formation below 25m where you can find nurse sharks hiding in the crevices. There are a lot of small animals like shrimps, flatworms, nudibranchs, gobies, pipefish.

Batu Bulan

A very shallow dive over a beautiful seascape. The sandy seafloor, almost powdery in its composition, is interspersed with boulders and stacks of staghorn and table corals. Split-banded canrdinalfish, butterflyfish and damselfish swim around the coral structures, providing a very colorful contrast. The seabed is home to sea cucumbers and goatfish.

 

 

Batu nayak Keras  

Descending initially to around 20 metres, you will reach a boulder-strewn seabed with occasional patches of Acropora and sponges as well as small schools of reef fish like yellowtail snappers and fusiliers. Cleaner shrimps and other species of shrimp live on many of the corals, boulders and starfished. At the the shallow regions, boulders festooned with tube worms and feathers shelter moray eels.

 

Batu Kuching

‘Cat Rock’ is located west of the island with a depth of 20m. the site consists of a boulder arrangement that resembles a cat. Sea whips, barrel sponges and hard corals are home to glass sweepers, wrasses, butterflyfish and snappers.
