WAHOO POINT

A small point located on the North side of the mainland with a shelf from 15 feet to 50 feet in depth and dropping with a sheer wall down to 200+ feet. This site is frequently visited by Hammerheads, Manta Rays, occasionally Whale Sharks, Minki Whales and on two occasions, Orcas. The site also hosts a variety of anenomies, a school of Barracuda and very large Elephant ear sponges. A great place for wide angle photography.

LAUADI

The site has a variety of octopuses and on occasions, the Mimic has appeared.

CHERIE'S REEF

This is a beautiful drift dive along a slope that's covered with large Gorgonians and littered with large schools of fish. Particular Gorgonians host the infamous Pigmy Sea Horse.

JASON'S REEF

LITTLE CHINA

A coral mound coming out of 150 feet of water. Typical of over 30 dive sites in close proximity. Large schools of fish over the front face, soft coral gardens where both macro and wide angle photographers can be more than satisfied.

PELAGIC POINT

This dive site has relatively strong current and because of this there are large quantities of fish patrolling a steep wall dropping off to 130 feet. Sharks are often sighted on this site.
