Possible dive areas visited:

Bidadari island: The location consists of massive towers of stone covered with hard/soft corals. There are a lot of nudibranchs, dusky sharks, bumphead parrotfish. A gentle slope covered with every color of table corals. There are some small caves where are the home of some huge lobsters.

Sebayour: It is a good dive spot for check dive. The location is the slope and sandy area continuing to the ridge. There is a lot of macro fish like jawfish, bubble coral shrimps, leaffish, porcelain crabs. There are also plenty of schools of fusiliers, bumphead parrotfishes, redtooth triggerfishes, and jackfishes.

Castle Rock: Approx. 20-30 m depth. There are numerous sea fans where are home to pygmy seahorses. The fish life here is simply stunning, with a school of barracudas, trevally, and mackerel. Also, white tips, black tips, gray reef sharks, and visibility is excellent.

Crystal Rock: The rock is submerged at high tide and exposed at low tide. The best time to dive there is during slack tide. Big fishes come with some current. The water is very clear. The shallows host colorful anthias, damselfish, pyramid butterflyfish, turtles, and large octopus. For macro critters, nudibranchs and frogfish are often seen.

Tatawa Besar: The dive area is a fringing reef and steep banks with turtles. There are several coral caves. There is a lot of fish like schools of sweetlips. Sharks and turtles are very common. Manta’s sometimes come to this area also. The best way to dive here is to drift with the current along the northeastern side and end up on the corner for a safety stop.

Tatawa Kecil: This is a small rocky island consisting of huge boulders and rocks to the west. All covered with orange cup corals. The best time to dive here is during slack tide. Many coral reef fishes include large groupers, snappers, sweetlips, jacks, and sharks. Dugong sometimes can be seen.

Batu Bolong: It is a small rocky island. Diving can be done during only slack tide. This area is undamaged by fishermen because of the location where steep walls do not allow them to use dynamite and cyanide fishing techniques. The area is covered by colorful corals and thousands of small colorful fish. It is needed to dive into this area strictly. Divers must follow the dive guide to avoid getting sucked down to the deeper level.

Wainilu: It is good to visit macro marine life here. There are many nudibranchs, banded pipefishes, mandarin fishes, Wonderpus, Indian walkman, frogfishes, and harlequin sweetlips. .Some divers call this area ” Little Lembeh.”

Cannibal Rock: There are both hard and soft corals. It is very abundant and worth doing several dives. We can see several species of unusual nudibranchs, zebra crabs, frogfish. Anemones cover the top of the reef with different species of sea anemonefishes. Diving here is easy because of little current.

Yellow Wall: Large yellow soft coral covers it… that’s why it is called Yellow Wall!

Manta Alley: It is a very famous dive site to see Mantas. They can be found through the site. Also, there are schools of bumphead parrotfish, bamboo sharks, and marble rays.
