Points of Interest

Basac is comprised of two different reefs separated by a sandy valley. It can be completed as 1 dive, however better done as two. The whole area is a Marine Park Sanctuary.

The first reef is a very colourful, small gradual wall, or ridge paralleling the shore, has some hard corals and sponges. This is the better macro dive as the reef is smaller and the more interesting little critters are found here. Frogfish, Ribbon eels, sawblade shrimps, Flamboyant cuttlefish, and Harlequin Shrimp are regularly seen in the coral rubble at the base of the ridge. Currents can be experienced here but not as strong as on the second or southern reef. The north reef is best at 12-16m depth

The southern Reef is much larger and more susceptible to strong currents. It has some very colourful hard and soft corals and lots of barrel sponges. There are lots of reef fish here and more of the larger predatory species of fish. There are tqo large schools of Barracuda and Spanish Mackerel. There are some nice coral bombies in the shallows that can be done as a safety stop or to hide from the current. Warning, the current can be very strong here. Basac South is best done as a drift dive.
