You may see whitetip reef sharksoff the boulders, and Kuhl's stingrays are common on the sandy bottom. You will find black and white snapper, giant travallies and tuna swimming amoung boulders, as well as schools of neon fusiliers, bluefin trevallies and yellow snapper. When passing through the swim-throughs, you may encounter big snappers, oriental sweetlips or harlequin sweetlips, and if you are lucky, you will spot ghost pipefish and frogfish camouflaged amoung the pinnacles. The lush corals are home to various small marine critters such as red fire gobies, blennies and nudibranches.
