It also frequently offers a chance to see the oceanic manta.3rd dive at Sardine’s Reef : don’t get wrong, there are no sardines on this site! The name comes from the density of fish that can be found here which is sometimes comparable to a school of sardines : tuna, barracuda, jacks, wrasses, parrotfish bump, many sharks (gray, white tip and black carpet). The sea fans here are great spots to see three species of pygmy seahorses (Denise, Bargibanti and Pontohi).Sailing to Yanggefo

Days 3

YANGGEFO – up to 3 dives

1st dive at Mayhem Reef : This site has a great variety of encounters, from large schools of fusiliers, snappers, jacks and batfish to wobbegongs and pygmy seahorses on the bottom. The ideal dive on Mayhem involves dropping in along the edge of the pinnacle along the current side and watching the schools of fish parading in the current. As bottom time slips away, then it’s time to swim along the plentiful large bommies leading toward the shallows.

2nd dive at Citrus Ridge : The reef is made up of a ridge that slopes down and it is one of the dive sites that are often called aquariums for the vast numbers of marine life that exist here. There are many bommies littered on the sandy bottom. The soft corals are home to literally thousands of glassfish that nest all over the dive site. The sea fans are home to many different types of sea horse including pygmy seahorses. There are also many different types of sweetlips and jaw fish.3rd dive at Tanjung YanggefoSailing to  Wofoh
