Depending on the exact dive spot selected by the dive instructors, you can expect to swim alongside a variety of sea turtles, blue-spotted rays, barracudas, barrel sponges and several other species. The dive spots are peppered with different varieties of coloured corals and underwater rock formations.

    The visibility at most dive spots is relatively high with the flow of ocean currents being low to moderate. These conditions make the dive spots perfect for budding divers looking to spend some time to learn and get certified.
