Scuba diving in Chebeh Island
This rocky granite island has dense tree growth above water and harbors a large colony of seagulls, which take off at the first sight of our dive boat. As you descend you will be greeted by many Yellowtail Fusiliers and Bat Fish. This steep sloping reef formation has a vast coverage of Fan Corals (Gorgonians) and many other soft and hard corals. At 21 meters you can discover a large cavern filled with Glass Fish, here on many occasions you can see sleeping Nurse Sharks up to 2.5 metres in length. Chebeh is well known for its pelages such as the large schools of Barracudas, Rainbow Runners, Black Tip Reef Sharks, White Tip Reef Sharks, Marble Rays, Jacks and Trevallies. In the earlier months of the season you might have the opportunity to gaze at Mantas and on occasion a Whale Shark cruising by in the clear plankton rich waters. This site always provides wonderful surprises on dives. If the current is strong you just might have one of your best dives, right here!
