Dive Site: Coral Garden

Location: Sipadan Island

Description: Reef / wall

Depth: 30 metres (100 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)

Rating: *****

Our last dive in Sipadan and I could hardly believe how fast our time here had gone. Undeniably the most exciting diving I have done in terms of marine life, however my diving here was done - for now anyway. Coral Garden continues the trend of deep wall diving with a sheer wall dropping away into the depths. I swam out into the blue in search of a final glimpse of the Sipadan manta rays and as I looked back at my buddy against the vertical reef wall several white-tip sharks cruised around her. No mantas this time, but we ascended to say a final farewell to the Sipadan turtles.
