Coral Garden Dive Site Tulamben


Tulamben Coral Garden dives offer another accessible shore entry from the beach to a fantastic array of healthy fringing reefs and established marine habitats. The wonderful corals begin at 2 meters and gradually shelve down to about fifteen. The shallowness and the site's weak currents make it absolutely easy and ideal for novice divers and snorkel swimmers to enjoy. It is broadly a location for reef fishes but the occasional passing of white tip sharks eclipses the regular sightings of thousands of marine residents. There is also an artificial reef structure that resembles the shape of a small airplane. This creates a magnificent backdrop of colour and diversity for timid critters and macro creatures that seek additional protection from the underwater statue.
