Garden Eel Point

Starting this dive from the most north west tip of Menjangan Island, following the wall southwards towards the Bali/Menjangan channel, you will see some of the most healthy and diverse corals on Menjangan. The cracks and breaks in the wall are filled with a great diversity of reef fish.

Gradually following the wall down from the top (5-8m) to 25m (max depth 35m), where it becomes a white sand slope, you find a big gorgonian fan with Longnose hawkfish.

What you will see at Garden Eel Point

This area is also known for sightings of White-tip and Black-tip reef sharks, Dogtooth tuna, small schools of barracudas, turtles, and of course Napoleon wrasse. From 25m we slowly ascend up the slope, over many soft corals, until reaching a huge colony of Garden eels that covers the slope from 20m to beyond where it flattens out at 14m.

From Garden Eel Point we head south to a coral garden (5-12m) with Big-eyed trevally, Titan triggerfish, many clownfish in their anemones and often a surprising number of scorpionfish. Make sure you check the numerous sea fans for any of the variety of Pygmy seahorses we see here.
