We dove Chankanaab Reef quite a few times on our last dive trip. Always lots of fish to see. One of my favorites.

We did a night dive a Chancanab refs, and it didn't disappoint. 4 octopus, eels, and crab and lobsters too numerous to count. Eduardo with Sea Robin did a great job setting this up for us
