Mabul and Kapalai : The close-by islands are a heaven for macro critter lovers. For those that enjoy searching for alien looking minute creatures, these islands hold the ornate ghost pipe fish, pygmy seahorse, mimic octopus and the flambuoyant cuttlefish amongst many others.

Seaventures House-reef: RIght below the Rig is a vibrant reef built by purpose sunk objects to help corals grow. Find a buddy, jump over for a dive, when you are done just get a lift upto your rig
