Underwater Photo Location: Temple of the Sea (Tokong Laut)

How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
The dive site is a large pinnacle sea mount, the tip of which protrudes from the sea. The base of the mount is around 24 metres where you can find Nurse Sharks and Blue-Spotted Ribbontail Rays resting under coral during the day. There is a shelf at about 12 metres which is covered in anemones and soft corals. Schools of Bigeye Snapper hang around the North side with Yellowtail Barracuda patrolling nearby. The currents can be strong here, but you can usually shelter on the leeside, if it's not possible to go completely around. It is a very popular dive site and usually has 5 to 6 boats on it in the morning, so it can get a bit congested with dive groups. Late afternoon is usually best for avoiding the crowds. Sea Temp in May 29c
