Garden Eel

This dive site is located at the most northwestern tip of Menjangan Island and can be reached by boat. In order to reach it you need to follow the wall west of the Anchor, navigate around the tip of the island and head almost into the channel between Menjangan and the Bali mainland. In the channel you will find an extremely rich and healthy wall. At the end of the dive you come across a shallow area which is inhabited by garden eels and is known as a good spot for occasional sightings of barracuda, white-tip reef sharks, turtles and napoleon wrasse

Kapal Budak (Anchor Wreck)

The name of this site comes from an ancient wooden boat whose name and history are unknown.  It seems that the boat may have been transporting slaves at the beginning of the 19th century, as “kapal” means “ship” and “budak” means “slave”.  Two anchors are encrusted into the sediment and sand, one of them at 6 metres, and the other at 32 metres deep.  What remains of the boat is found between 35 and 50 metres deep, but the ship itself is hardly recognizable as it’s completely overgrown in coral.  The dive begins along a wall blotted by rifts and recesses which is colonized by an abundant marine life.  As this is often a deeper dive, be careful to watch closely your depth gauge and no-decompression limits.  Lucky divers might see eagle rays, whale shark, or even sun fish (Mola mola).
