BIG DROP OFF

Experience level: Beginner
Typical depth: 20 meters / 70 feet

Big drop off runs along the side of Ngemelis Island and abounds with soft, leather and fan corals and was made famous by Jacques Cousteau who loved this wall dive and studied the corals here. Drift slowly along this wall through schools of Yellow Pyramid Butterfly Fish, Moorish Idols and many types of Angel Fish. Study the wall more closely to find Nudibranchs, Moray Eels and Lion Fish, and perhaps even a well-camouflaged Scorpion Fish. White Tip Sharks often snooze on the sandy patches below and keep an eye on the blue for passing Grey Reef Sharks or even an Eagle Ray.
