There are many different species of fish here however the dive site is now highlighted by the large numbers of the fascinating honeycomb moray eels that now reside there. There are so many honeycomb morays there that it has one experienced scuba diving tour leader question that it may be the greatest concentration of the popular eels in the world.

The dive site is a popular one with the macro lovers with many nudibranchs to be found. It also does contain some species of seahorse and pipe fish that are not normally found in the popular dive sites in the area.

Keep an eye out in the open sandy areas for leopard sharks and possible a rare marble ray that is known to frequent the area. Keep your eyes above as well as whale sharks have been know to swim by from time to time.

This is a great wreck to just take you time and dive slow. After two dives on the wreck you still have the feeling of being underdone as you could dive on this wreck for a week and still not find everything one here.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?
