You will be amazed at the fantastic variety of diving.  Warm Water 82° - 84º F.  Dive site options include a mix of walls covered with great diversity of healthy corals and soft corals, extremely colorful sandy slopes, small caves and sandy bottoms full of life.  All sorts of anemones, even muck diving.  Marine life varies from XXS to XXL, pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, ghost pipe fish, schools of fish, turtles, a passing whale shark, and occasional mantas.  Photographers will have a tough decision using either a wide angle or macro lens.  It's a good thing there is an option to do multiple dives each day over the 11 days of diving scheduled.
Island hopping is well arranged, visiting both Magic Island & Magic Oceans Resorts.  Relax or dive also enjoy excellent service and food.  After diving enjoy a cool drink and a swim in the pool.  Bungalows are surrounded by floral and green surroundings.  There are fabulous house reefs teeming with life great for both divers and snorkelers easily accessed directly from resorts.
