One of the most pristine dive areas in Southeast Asia, a cruise around these islands makes the experience of a lifetime.

There are also good chances of spotting bowmouth guitarfish, nurse sharks, grey reef sharks, cuttlefish, harlequin shrimps, frogfish, sea horses and a plenty of lobsters. In the afternoon, dive at Western Rocky Pinnacle; sea leopard, grey reef and nurse sharks, eagle ray, eels, ghost pipefish and sea horses are all known to congregate in this area.
Last dive of the day is at Shark Cave, one of the most famous dive sites in the archipelago, known for the strong possiblity of encountering sharks inside the cave.
