Coconuts is an amazing but potentially dangerous dive due to the currents and undercurrents that can be experienced. This site is also known as the washing machine. The crazy currents that can be experienced here can be hard to determine. This site is only for the experienced and confident. Almost always done as a drift dive, it is very exhilarating.
This is a very colourful coral reef dive. The sponges that adorn the corals are really quite amazing. Various schooling fish, like Jacks, trevallies and Snappers. Turtles, both Green and Hawksbills are always almost seen here as well. Occasional visitors to this site are Whalesharks and Mantas and various other rays and Sharks.
Whilst there is so much to photograph it can be quite tricky because of the currents, but always exciting trying!
