Macro Diving

If you stop and look closely at the ocean floor, you can find unbelievable critters that come in every shape, size and colour. Animals such as frogfish, flamboyant cuttlefish, octopus in all sizes, nudibranchs of every description, pipefish, pygmy seahorses… the list is endless! Just when you think you’ve seen everything, the guide will point out another fabulous creature that you’ve never seen before.
