Boo Windows, Misool offers superbly colourful corals, schools of snappers, trevallies, batfish and large Napoleon wrasse. Smaller creatures sucha as Ghost pipefish can be found in the shallow water and the "windows"- two rock formations with holes eroded through- is an awesome spot for some dramatic photography.
Manta Sandy at Mansuar Island At just 18m on a sandy seabed is where we divers rest and wait for the spectacular shows performed by the manta rays. Several mantas are regularly seen at one time cruising in the narrow channel and to two coral bommies to be cleaned or just get an up close look at a curious diver! The mantas' wingspans reach up to 5m, some are totally black whilst others have various white markings making them identifiable. A site not to be missed and we will often dive here more than once.
