The softer flora And fauna such as anemones and sponge corals are home to cleaner shrimps, emperor shrimps & hinged back shrimp. Porcelain crabs, decorator crabs, spider crabs all waiting for your inquisitive eyes.
Rock Island's proximity to Club Paradise allow divers to find it's resident green turtles scrounging around the area. Barrel sponges likewise reveal a number of critters. Huge table corals are home to Cardinal & Damsel fish, while glass fish, soldier fish and rock groupers live underneath.
The highlight of the dive is a swim thru at 3 to 5 meters depth in between a channel that separates the 2 lime stone rock formation protruding out of the water. An occasional eagle ray might make an appearance.
