Forgotten Islands Liveaboard

 

DIVING THE FORGOTTEN ISLANDS

A Forgotten Islands liveaboard is getting fast popular by divers for the schools and individual sightings of the hammerhead shark. One of the dive sites is famous for many sea snakes that are very curious and approach divers, even touching your fins and sometimes even your mask.

Because the Forgotten islands are so isolated, the reefs are untouched and in great shape. The marine life is abundant, with schools of butterflyfish, fusiliers, and surgeonfish swimming in large schools around the dive sites. Other sightings can be of large fish such as the big-eye trevally, barracuda, and mackerels. Besides the Hammerhead sharks, you can spot blacktip, whitetip, and even silvertip sharks patrolling the dive sites.[gravityform
