South Lapan SCUBA Dive Sites

Category: Lapan IslandSouth Lapan
Visibility was excellent, the water as warm as bathwater, and we were fed so well we needed to work off the calories. Again, it was a wall dive. The further East we traveled, the healthier the corals were. South Lapan wall was rife with life: leaf scorpionfish, stonefish, some huge trevallies, lots of nudibranchs. The highlight of this dive was the appearance of three giant fantail rays, the size of small UFOs. The awesome creatures only stayed with us for a short while. They soon 'flew' off, their giant wings flapping away. As they swum away, an image of a plate of barbecued sambal stingray came to mind' yum! (fish are food, not friends!).
