Dive sites such as Secret Bay, the USAT Liberty wreck at
Tulamben and Seraya Secrets have enthralled macro enthusiasts
(including our own dive travel specialists) with the sheer variety
of critters on show. Fanciful frogfish, permanently-pouting pygmy
seahorses and resplendent rhinopias are all waiting to drain your
camera battery on the myriad muck diving sites of Bali.
The black, volcanic sand in the shadows of Mount Agung provides
perfect contrast to the vivid colours of the nudibranchs and soft
corals below the water. The cooler, nutrient-rich currents in the
south nourish the filter-feeding mantas as orangutan crabs,
cockatoo waspfish and leaf scorpionfish inhabit the corals below.
The mixture of shore and boat diving and the topographical
diversity of dive sites add to the adventure. With surface
intervals spent poring over fish identification books, the muck
diving in Bali will leave you begging for more and itching to get
back to this island paradise.
