Let’s start with a short video of the dive site.
This is a classic 9 to 11 m reef top
with the drop off to about 36 m
and lots of different corals all the way down the ledge.
There are lots of batfish both coming …
and going …
There are great sea fans at 35 m.
As well as the scenery, there are plenty of sweet lips, parrots …
and butterfly fish including this ornate one.
Also this Dark Surgeon.
The strange thing about this site compared to all the others we dived in Cocos is that the fish tend to hangout in shoals of the same type, and not mingle so much with fish of other types. Just an observation – not suggesting anything.
