Diving season is all year round. All the small famous marine critters of South East Asia can be found, such as numerous nudibranch species, crabs and shrimps including the rare harlequin, ghostpipefishes, frogfishes, various seahorses and Mandarin fishes are very well represented around the island.
Gato island, a marine sanctuary, about 45 min by banca from Bounty beach, is a superb critter place but also breeding ground of black banded sea snakes and home to a large grey bamboo and white tip reef sharks population, which can be easily observed.
Monad shoal, a sunken island, 30 min by banca, is the place to look for large pelagics like tunas or barracudas. There is an excellent Manta ray cleaning station and the site is world famous for daily sightings of Thresher sharks!
