Tanjung Bunga SCUBA Dive Sites

Category: Flores IslandTanjung Bunga
Overnight, we sailed nack to Flores, and arrived in an East Flores dive site called Tanjung Bunga. As soon as I descended, I realized that this site was a far cry from our previous day's fantastic sites. There are extensive damage to the reef, evidently from bomb-fishing. Large patches of the reef were destroyed to a mere rubble, a truly disheartening sight. However, the site seems to be some sort of a shark nursery. Rizal counted 9 juvenile back tip sharks patroling in the deep, a truly amazing number considering the state of the reef. We also spotted two hawksbill turtles glidi
