Scuba Diving at Mabul Island, Borneo
Dive Site: Mandarin
Location: Mabul Island
Description: Reef / drift
Depth: 9 metres (30 feet)
Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)
Mandarin, located in the shallow waters in from of the main jetty on Mabul, is near the dive sites Paradise 1 and Paradise 2. We did this dive as a dusk dive and experience the transition between night and day which occurs on the reef. A shallow sloping reef descends to a seabed at around 10 metres. We found ourselves the victims of another titan triggerfish attack. The current was running from north to south so we effortlessly drifted along, coming across a snowflake moray eel and a large group of shrimpfish hanging vertically in the water.
