The Peanut dive site, Carabao

Only a few minutes ride from Vibrations dive center, this dive site offers a very interesting topography and great marine life.

Dive site topography

We start on a shallow hard coral reef going slowly down to 15 meters. You will see beautiful barrel sponges on the way and after a few minutes we will reach a couple of underwater hills, having the shape of… a peanut! Or a camel back, or just hills :).

We can go down here to 25+ meters, and enjoy those pinnacles covered by life. If the current allows, we will turn after the second hill and head back to the starting point but this time following a shallow wall. If the current is too strong, we just continue the dive on the reef.

Marine life

Here we can spot turtles (there is a couple resident), sting rays, frogfish, snappers, critters for macro lovers like nudibranchs, orang-utan crabs and more. Manta rays have already been spotted here too!

Let’s see if you are lucky.
