Your first Cocos dive and one of our favorites is Manuelita Island inside, which faces the calm waters of Chatham Bay. This well-protected site receives little current or swells. These calm conditions support a beautiful shallow garden at depths ranging from 20 to 70 feet. It is a macro-photographers heaven.
Countless fish, eels, lobsters and many other critters are residents of the hard coral reef and the adjacent sand slope. Large fish are frequent visitors to this site, including hammerheads, black tip sharks, white tip sharks and numerous marble rays. At this spot, large schools of white tip sharks can be seen feeding at dark. It is the best night dive spot.
Whitetips, marble rays, manta rays, eagle rays, turtles, black tips, garden eels and the most recent addition: Tigers Sharks!
