The outer reef experience is unsurpassed with a choice of dozens of world-class dive sites.  Spectacular marine life in abundance: schooling barracuda and reef fish, hammerheads, reef sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, grouper and cruising pelagic as well as soft and hard corals. A pristine environment unspoiled.

The fjords are excellent for macro diving with gobies, nudibranch, shrimps and clams.  

5-10 nautical miles offshore lies a string of reefs – ‘bommies’ that come up from a staggering depth of up to 600 m to a nice safety-stop level of 7-5 m below the surface. The outer reef experience is unsurpassed with visibility exceeding 30m all year round and water temperature from 26-29°C.
