Underwater topography ranges from fringing corals reefs to seagrass beds which play host to a diverse range of marine life from large pelagics to small colourful reef fish and critters. The vibrant reefs are characterized by fields of soft corals and Gorgonian fans. Marine life highlights include enormous huge Goliath Grouper, schooling snapper and beautiful angelfish. We should encounter sharks during the safari as well as eagle rays and Hawksbill turtles.
