Scuba Dive Hens and Chickens
This beautiful patchy reef has huge pinnacles with lots of tall soft corals and purple sea fans. Swimming among them gives the feeling of walking around on Pandora from the film Avatar—otherworldly. This shallow reef has tons of fish diversity, including porkfish, blue chromis, surgeonfish, damselfish, snook, moray eels, and more. During our visit a friendly loggerhead sea turtle casually munched on invertebrates despite our group of seven divers surrounding it. This relaxing, uncrowded dive site is highly recommended.
