A reef, wall and deep dive site located on the eastern side of Layang Layang Island, and just 15 mins by boat, this site is so-called because of the dogtooth tuna seen cruising around the drop off wall regularly in huge schools. Dogtooth lair shouldn’t be missed, as everything you could hope to see, can be found here!
Along the reef top and towards the drop off to an incredibly vibrant wall, all covered with beautifully dense coral gardens, where you will find several overhangs and ledges to explore, full of barrel sponges and nudibranchs of all shapes and colours. These are all brimming with macro creatures including flatworms, and you could even encounter stingrays sleeping next to white tip reef sharks on the ledges.
As well as hundreds of dazzling reef fish of all species like parrotfish, snapper, wrasse, angelfish, and anthias to name a few, you can watch gently gliding turtles below as you drift by schools of fusiliers and surgeonfish, swim with whirling clouds of horse-eye jacks, and see thousands of butterfly fish cascading over the drop off.
With depths of up to 40m, this dive is recommended for advanced divers, and with viz so clear and as far as 40m, it is possible to see larger pelagic fish such as stingrays, sunfish, massive dogtooth tuna, reef sharks, barracudas, and giant trevallies swimming not just around the wall but further off into the distance. Remember to be on your guard here, this site is also well-known for hammerhead sharks who regularly cruise in to the cleaning stations and for feeding.
