Pulau Lima Kechil

    Meaning: Small Five Island


Diving with Dan's Nasty Frogmen
Lima Kechil makes its claim as a dive site for the huge table coral throughout the dive. Predominately hard coral, the initial descent is to 10 metres where we head south to do a circuit around 2 large rocks, coming back on ourselves to head through the coral garden looking out for friendly batfish, blue spotted stingrays and puffer fish hiding out underneath the table coral. Heading towards the north end of the island the depth bottoms out at 16 metres where 4 spurs of reef section jut out from the island and we start to get into the soft coral and sea fans. Having explored up in between these spurs the dive finishes with a large mix of hard and soft coral as we come in closer to the island to do our safety stop on the upper reef at 5 metres. This allows further inspection for all the different types of nudibranchs that we get here.
