THILA BARI

bolike-faru

  • Experience level: easy diving, if current isn’t too strong
  • Coral life: very good nice stone corals
  • Fauna: typical variety of fish life of an inner reef, means lots of fish-kinder garden, like blue-stripe snappers and fusiliers; whitetip reef sharks, turtles, butterfly fish of all kinds
  • Particular features: 4 thilas one after the other
  • During north-east monsoon: mostly ingoing current, dive reef to the right side; be careful that you don’t miss the third thila nor change direction; with strong current you will meet sometimes heavy counter-current between the thilas, don’t get confused by that; the other side of the thilas, especially at the beginning, is not very nice; here is a shallow dive recommended
  • During south-west monsoon: mostly outgoing current, dive to the left side; be careful that you don’t miss the third thila nor change direction by accident, if visibility isn’t good; during this period there is a possibility, that you see mantas
  • Safety considerations: quick descend, as sometimes current flows heavily over the reef flat and carries you to the wrong side
