Clown Valley SCUBA Dive Sites

Category: Pura IslandClown Valley
Our first dive of the day was at Clown Valley, off Pura Island. It is perhaps one of the few non-wall dives we had in Alor. I cannot remember the terrain very well, because I was mesmerized by the expanse of anemones and soft corals of all types. I even found a bunch of of soft corals that (I think) looked like penises. Too bizarre. I have pictures to prove it! Clown Valley was indeed teeming with lost of different types of clownfish, but I soon got a little bored. I love the cute clownies, but I didn't want to spend one hour looking at them! There was nothing else to see in this site but clownfish. I surfaced after a mere 48 minutes, a waste of half a tank of air, but I really couldn't care less. I was ready to fall asleep underwater.
