A submersed pinnacle between Labas Island and Sepoi Island is our top dive site. It starts at 9 metres and slopes down to 22 metres and is one of the major highlights of Tiomans under water world. The rock formation is simply amazing because everything is covered by soft coral, sea fan, hard corals and barrel sponges. Since Tiger Reef is not frequently dived you can find very little human impact upon the corals. And due to the stronger currents, which you can expect here, you can encounter large schools of Jacks, Mackerels, Yellow Fin Barracudas and Rainbow Runners on almost every dive. With all these giant boulders experienced divers can zoom in and out of the canyons to avoid the strong currents.
