Anker Wreck dive is a small wooden boat encrusted with giant gorgonian fans. Sunk in World War II the wreck derives its name from the anchor that still lies at around 6-metres from the surface. Descending all the way down to 50-metres you will find artefacts of copper sheeting and bottles resting on the sandy bottom. Schools of fusilier and bannerfish circle the boats remains while nudibranch and frogfish decorate the seabed.
Garden Eel Point offers some of the healthiest corals on Menjangan Island. As you make your way along the wall, cracks and crevices are filled with a great diversity of reef fish and sea turtles often visit the area. At the bottom of the wall, a white sanded slope appears where longnose hawkfish hide in huge gorgonian fans and huge colonies of garden eels cover the slope. Reef sharks, napoleon wrasse and scorpionfish often survey the site.
Pos I is a relaxing reef dive without any current. The spectacular corals feature interesting crevices, fissures and small caves with a multitude of sea fans. A drop off descends to 40-metres where whale sharks have been seen passing in the blue. Pos I’s sister site Pos II offers a gentle drift dive along an impressive wall. Slowly descend along the walls many overhangs and crevasses into a thermocline which sometimes brings with it manta rays, sharks and mola mola.
