BANNERFISH BAY

Photogapher’s favourite

Bannerfish Bay is a dive site located just right of the lighthouse. And this particular spot is always good for a surprise.

DIFFICULTY: Easy

DEPTH: 25m

CURRENTS: uncommon

SNORKELING: yes

Using the same entry as the lighthouse, go left down a gradual slope to about 12 m. Here you will swim over a large seagrass area which is abundant with macro life; sea horses, angler fish, nudibranchs, rare ghost pipefish, moray eels, stonefish, scorpion fish and crustaceans and lots more are hidden in the sea grass. This is Bannerfish Bay. It is quite common to see the resident turtle feeding on the sea grass. Right in the middle of it all, you will see the small car wreck and several car tires.

Swim a little further and after the sea grass you will find a small reef filled to the brim with schooling bannerfish, which is where the dive site got its name.

Particularity

A shallow dive, great for night diving and perfect for the photographer.
