Unspunnenstein dive sites Indonesia
A bizarre name for a dive site, typically Swiss 😉 This site is another steeply sloping reef and wall combination characterised by many alcoves and channels in which numerous hiding reef fish can be found. The site boasts good patches of Halimeda algae and with a bit of luck and a trained eye, it is possible to see the Halimeda Ghost Pipe Fish hiding in here along with some beautiful flat worms, nudibranch and shrimps. As with almost all of our dive spots here, turtles are seen on most visits as are a host of colourful reef fish.
Doda dive sites Indonesia
Similar topography to Unspunnenstein – A deep sloping reef and wall with lots of soft corals, gorgonians and sponges of all shapes and colours. There is a particularly beautiful reef flat here with many staghorn corals which are home to wrasse, harlequin sweetlips fish and other colourful species of reef fish. Highlights at Doda can include ghost pipefish, leaf fish, numerous shrimp and crab species as well as green turtles and banded sea snakes.
Appatanah cave dive sites Indonesia
This is not an actual cave, but rather a deep overhanging cavern which is thickly dotted with many soft corals and gorgonians. From the outer overhang it is worth looking into the blue water – often big fish, such as white tip sharks, eagle rays, napoleons and large groupers are seen passing through. Again, this can be a deep dive for those who wish to do so. The reef top here makes this dive site quite different to our other dive spots, there is a wide, white sand area with scattered coral bommies and formations – many of which are shrouded in colourful glass fish. Amongst these coral bommies we find mantis shrimp, leaf fish, various cleaner shrimps and crabs, nudibranch, stonefish and moray eels. The sand is also home to hundreds of garden eels, flounders and blue spotted stingrays.
