Dive 198: Coral Gardens, Pulau Sipadan (Malaysia)

Standard

Dive time:  00:47:00
Max depth:  32.9 metres

Visibility:  30 metres

Surface interval:  14:51:00

This was my last day of diving so I made a special request to dive in Sipadan and the people here at Kapalai were kind enough to indulge me!

There was no storm last night for once, and the visibility was just amazing.  We dropped in on the coral gardens quite shallow and I immediately saw a green moray, just the first of at least 4 green morays of the dive!  The site here gradually slopes down with a relatively sandy bottom but with patches of coral everywhere.  We saw a few barracuda cruising around, a few turtles, white tip reef sharks, and as we came up shallower for our safety stop we saw a school of around 20 bumpheaded parrot fish.
