Dive Day One
The first dive sites of our safari are High Rock and Rocky Island: Rays and Cobias encountered frequently here, besides many macro creatures are native at the coral gardens. Pipefish, frogfish and seahorses are here discoverable and various types of slugs.
Two more dives in the afternoon will take place on one of the best diving spots in the archipelago: the Shark Cave. This dive site is known for its sharks, rest during the day in the cave before they go to hunt in the evening. Around the rocks one has also a very good chance to spot manta rays, eagle rays, gray sharks and - with luck - a whale shark. But even small creatures such as seahorses, frogfish and ghost pipe fish that live in the beautiful coral, can be detected with a good eye here.
Dive Day Two
On the second dive day of our adventure safari we drive to the most famous dive site in the archipelago: the Black Rock. Far away from the coast in the open sea the rock is located and he’s a unique attraction for rays and sharks that can be encountered in very good visibility. In the coral gardens around the rock are countless macro creatures located. Ghost pipefish and frogfish we see here regularly.
A dive site which you will not forget, only because of its secluded location. This makes diving here a special experience.

On our third dive we drive to the Twin Islands. 3 dives at North Twin and 1 dive at South Twin are planned here. These dive sites are located west of the archipelago alone in the open sea and provide with its remote especially good visibility and the best chance for big fish. Giant Gorgonian adorn these dive sites, which are also a cynosure for rays and sharks.

The underwater world here offers spectacular, beautiful and colorful soft corals with an abundance of macro organisms such as ghost pipefish, nudibranchs, schools of perch and the ability to spot a whale shark at Boulder Rock. McLeod Iceland in the evening is a great place for a night dive or just to chill out only at one of its beautiful beaches.
