The soft coral capital of the world’s signature dive offers an astounding wall of pure white soft coral. This site is definitely the world famous Rainbow Reef’s top draw. A coral encrusted swim–through leads onto the wall from the reef top. A dazzling myriad of colour and life inhabits the reef top. Manta rays glide past with ethereal grace. On exiting the water from this site an awed silence lasts awhile before an excited chatter that lasts for days starts among divers. Not to be missed!
An extreme marine experience! Schools of barracuda are common here, swimming above the white tip reef sharks resting on the sand. Moray eels, groupers and small reef fish are plentiful and lucky divers will glimpse the graceful bronze whaler sharks patrolling the deep blue waters.
Vuna Reef at its finest! This wall dive faces open ocean, and it is here that we have seen some of our favourite regulars: sharks, rays and Napoleon wrasse. Schools of Spanish mackerel or Giant Tuna also drift by from the deep. All of this in only 18metres – a truly awe-inspiring dive site that never seems to disappoint.
