 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): About 70 metres from the prehistorically rugged sheer cliffs of Apolima Island, we plunge into a wonderland of colour and life. Appropriately named, we are dropped into a coral garden that begins at about 8metres. As we follow the reef, it is possible to go to a depth of 40metres, but unless you have done this dive many times there is really no need as there is so much to see between 10 and 20 metres. Large table corals screen the lobsters hiding beneath but their position is given away to the alert diver by their antennae. Rainbow runners, unicorn fish, turtles, napoleon, reef sharks and blue fin trevally are a staple of this dive. With so many routes to take along the reef you can do this dive again and again and see something new each time.
