Lovely reef

Wonderful reef, and was fortunate to see plenty of life, including a Sea Cow (Dugong) from the surface having just exited from my dive!

I had the chance to swim with 3.5 m Dugong twice and with 1.5 m turtle. Hit the beach after 3:30 PM when the ships leaves. Follow the grass and search for Dugong. If you are more than one, split up to increase the probability. Dugong came to the beach to eat every day from 3:30 pm to 4:30 PM... More

We were able to see a sea cow and sea turtle on this trip - but I understand from the lifeguard at our hotel (Concorde Moreen) that the sea cow and sea turtles will often go to its beach. Therefore, I do not know if the extra money for this trip was worth it - but it was nice.

You can see more under water life and fishes here than at most hotel jetties. Dugongs and turtles are to be found here. The beach is good for snorkelling due to shelter of the bay. However remember to take life-jacket with you.

Close encounter with a dugong (snorkelling) and diving with turtles - a very special day - thanks to Emperor Divers and the boat crew of Amy for a great day out.
