Tokong Belalang (Rock 3)

Meaning: Cricket (Insect) Rock


A DNF favourite, the main features of this dive are the area west of the descent point on the west of the island, where there is a huge coral garden covered in sea fans and soft coral dropping down to 18 metres. Having had a good explore around this area heading south we have the choice of two swim throughs (not covered). The first is 3 to 4 metres wide with sheer walls on both sides, where the blue ringed angelfish show off their formation swimming and we may find the well camouflaged stone fish and scorpion fish lurking. The second is the channel between the end of the main island and the small rock just off it. The depth being 10 metres we normally come through this on the way up to the safety stop, although if there is a bit of a current flowing we may just continue round to the east side of the island where there are 3 large spurs requiring exploration.
