hour from Sangalaki by boat is a large island with a massive lagoon.
The island only rims part of the lagoon, the rest is fringed by
reef and wall. A Channel into the Lagoon is an incredible drift
dive and the surrounding walls are loaded with hard and soft corals.
If you love to see rare
little macro subjects, you'll love doing some dives at Samama, a
15 minute boat ride from Sangalaki. Its primo muck diving, without
the muck. There are lots of lovely corals there with great macro
mixed in. Samama also has clusters of Mangroves that are open to
the sea. This provides access to the interesting small creatures
which inhabit the tangled root structures in water much clearer
than you would normally find Mangroves in.
