1 Maratoua Island
Diving on the channel dive channel imagines the style of drifting the waterway between the islands, but the point of Big Fish Country is the entrance to the waterway where the ocean water flows into the large bay of the island So, we plan to apply the current hook around the corner, aim at the big object against the flow, and gradually adjust the hook position to a shallow depth.
And most importantly, the main aim is the tornado of barracuda.
Barracuda lines that are out of sight become a large group of swarms that begin to swirl in front of you, and
many divers will feel untouched and magnificent natural beauty.
As the flow is strong, white sharks, rhododendrons and tuna may swarm, and swarms of medley sharks also appear.
2 Delawan Island
Soft corals and sandy bottoms can be observed with imitating unique and beautiful creatures. For photographers and macrodivers , there
are points where whale sharks come, which is the sea where you want to dive . However, it can be seen with high probability throughout the year, and sometimes several animals appear in groups.

the tip of the island where the tide hits, aim at the area that is just a corner by deep dive.
This is also a group of Barracuda and Gingameji, and on the wall side, there may be a bitterness and hammerhead shark in the early morning.
The inside of the island is a lake, and many jellyfish breed in a unique environment where seawater and fresh water are mixed, and it is said to be a jellyfish lake. Because it is a jellyfish that does not have poison, you can swim with a mask.
4 Sangalaki Island The
shallow coral reef is a beautiful island.
Various hard corals and soft corals are intermingled and it is an untouched underwater world.
In areas where reef manta rays gather for cleaning and predation, they can be seen by diving and snorkeling, and sometimes swarming.
