What to see

Clouds of orange and purple anthias obscure your view of the reef. The reefs are so alive with colour it can be difficult to identify individuals but do keep an eye out for some of the areas endemics. Grey reef sharks, tuna and barracuda hunt. Expect turtles and humphead wrasse, a variety of morays. Whale sharks, although not seen in high numbers, do cruise in for a visit. Jackfish and batfish shimmer in the blue and grouper and puffer fish roam the reef.
