    Kan-uran
    Sanctuary - clownfish city and school of jack fish

    Diving with big fish

    by Yezber Updated May 23, 2003

    The diving is outstanding because there are so many big fish compared to other dive sites. You can expect to see things like:
    Trevally, Jacks, Barracuda, Bumpheaded parrotfish, turtles, seasnakes, garden eels and loads of small stuff! The only thing missing is a shark now and then.
    All dive sites are around the island - a 5 minute boatride (well, banca ride) and you're ready to jump in.

    I dived with Paul's diving and all divemasters had 100+ dives on the 8-12 dive sites - so they know the water! The price per dive is fair - a part of the money goes to marine protection work. And the more you dive the cheaper it is per dive.

    Equipment: If you have your own gear - bring it! Otherwise you just have to rent it, but I would have died of hypothermia in their wetsuits!
