Description

Umanzaki dive site is a very shallow dive site with corals of all imaginable colours – also great for snorkelling. Depending on the tide your tank may be hitting the water’s surface when you first drop in to explore the top of the reef, but it drops off to about 15-18 metres where there are several swim throughs.
