We are a fully equipped dive center and operates a fitted fibreglass dive boat (including freshwater shower for camera equipment) with twin 75hp engines. The manager of the center is a qualified marine biologist who has worked and researched in the region since 1995 and is a PADI dive instructor with over 15 years dive experience. Our visitors can learn more about the local marine life at the center's library and marine specimen collection, and get directly involved with local marine research and monitoring, with fish identification training provided.
The Monoliths. Rising from depths of over 150m the Monoliths offer architecturally impressive columns and walls that make the descent feel like skydiving. Only ten or twelve meters from the surface at the top they are home to hard and soft corals, anemones, colorful nudibranches and shoals of vibrant reef fish. At their edges snapper, barracuda, trevally and tuna shadow the shoals of neon-striped fusiliers that cruise between the structures. Descending into the depths, the walls offer spectacular views of Red-toothed triggerfish and Black pyramid butterfly fish, which crowd their sides like underwater confetti. Weaving between these great structures turtles, batfish, giant grouper and curious Napoleon wrasse shadow you, while garden eels reach up from the bottom to feed.
Cryptomania. A macro-photographers heaven Cryptomania is the ultimate in critter watching. Just six to twelve metres below the surface, nooks and crannies in the underwater cliffs and bommies reveal octopus, nudibranches, lobster, cleaner shrimps and moray and ribbon eels. The bottom is home to Frogfish, Seahorses and Crocodilefish camouflaged alongside tube anemones waving gently in the current, while colourful flatworms cruise the sand. Around the rocks Lionfish spread their fins like flowers and Scorpion fish and pipefish lie camouflaged, all surrounded by clouds of bright lilac and golden anthiases, vivid neon damselfish and shoaling fusiliers and surgeonfish.
