Subway at Vomo Lailai, a 5 minute boat trip from Vomo Resort, is a vertical slot in which vertical sunlight creates an atmospheric swim through. Indeed, Vomo Lailai, the small deserted island just to the west of Vomo, has very interesting terrain. The steep walls drop vertically into the water, making for interesting scuba diving with channels and swim throughs and high, steep sided bommies.
The main attraction is wide enough to swim through and even turn around and swim back – which you can do at a different level as the slot runs from the surface down to 18m.
The exit comes out a little further along the rock wall face.
Nearby are the Bommies dive sites, and the area in between is just the sort of terrain where scuba divers might find a large Moray hiding in the rocks.
There are clusters of staghorn where an angel might stop for a clean.
Or a Giant Squirrelfish might be hiding from the daylight, waiting for the night to go out hunting.
As well as snappers and schools of barracuda in the open water, you’ll see grouper and Napoleon Wrasse, and the occasional unicorn gliding through the landscape.
Scattered around at Vomo there are anemones with their often anxious looking inhabitants.
There are also nudis such as this exotic looking Plain Noumea.
The walls are covered with a variety of soft corals.
Subway is probably a dive you’ll want to do more than once!
