How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
The black sand slopes are some of the richest in the world between House Reef and Tulamben' s drop off. The slopes are littered with rocks, barrel sponges and coloured corals.
White-eyed moray eels, long-beak shrimp, lionfish and stonefish. Crinoids, harlequin ghost pipefish, squat lobster, clingfish and glass shrimp.
Each little rock and coral hides an oasis of macro and invertebrate life. Look for mantis shrimp, nudibranchs and sand anemones peaking up from the seafloor. A few resident barracuda scour the sandy slopes, milkfish flourish in the shallows and bull jacks cruise the reefs in search of victims. Graceful white tip reef sharks cruise this area. The hairy crab is a rare find that is known to live by the barrow sponges at the drop off. It is easy to lose track of time and depth here as you become deeply involved in this magical world.

one open mouth this shot was taken in Tulamben after the dive in Drop Off during our safety stop. Most of the time I didn´t take any photos because I was so impressed about the movements of the swarm.
