Scuba diving in Redang

Redang is situated on the East Coast of Malaysian Peninsula. The Redang Archipelago has spread over nine islands in the South China Sea. Sheltered within the Pulau Redang Marine Park, the waters here are rich with marine life. Local waters feature close to 80% of all the species found in the 'coral triangle', an area between the Philippines, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, known to have the highest number of marine species in the world. Divers may expect to see several species of turtles, different types of soft and hard corals, reef sharks, various species of fish including scorpion, moray eels, angel fish, barracuda, napoleon, trigger fish, rainbow runner, giant sting ray, cuttle fish, octopus, nudibranch and many more underwater creatures. There are more than 30 dive sites to suit divers of all skill levels, including beach dives and challenging deep dives, with a good mix of coral gardens and wall dives as well as sandy floor offering plenty of opportunities for macro photography. The dive sites are all located nearby and are quickly accessible by speedboat. Some of the interesting dive sites are Turtle Bay, Tanjung Tokong (an ideal place to be on the lookout for hawksbill and green turtles, soft coral, sea fans and sponges,) Big Sea Mount, Pulau Paku Kechil (also known as a great night dive site), Pulau Lima, Housereef, Mini Sea Mount and Marine Park Headquarters. At Tunnel Point, large boulders pile up in such a way as to form tunnel-like structures that divers can swim through. Attentive divers can hear boulders creak when surf pushes them against each other and makes them move. Gorgonian fans can be found clinging to walls surrounded by soft and hard corals covering the nearby reef. Numerous bumphead parrotfish, small barracudas, jacks and nudibranchs can also be seen . Visibility ranges from 5m/16ft to 20m/65ft, currents are gentle.
