Kubu is a fantastic all around dive site offering great corals, marine life, and a wreck. This is a great site with many stunning corals that start nearly directly on the beach and a good variety of marine life. It can be conducted as a drift dive and divers can expect a calm serene dive with a lot to see. There is a lot to explore including an 85-metre wreck of a Dutch patrol boat.
The dive site is relatively shallow with a maximum depth of 20 metres. Visibility here is quite good with a maximum visibility of around 30 metres. There is some current here but it is normally very week. Divers tend to visit between May and November when there are better conditions although diving is possible throughout the year.
The dive is made up of two walls that are covered in soft corals, including a good variety of gorgonian sea fans, and sponges. The walls drop down to about 30 metres and the gentle current guides divers past the two walls. There is also a good cover of hard coral. Divers will be able to spot many different fish including scorpionfish, triggerfish, lionfish, groupers, turtles, pufferfish, batfish, leaf fish, cuttlefish, and moray eels. Black tip reef sharks and white tip reef sharks are also common in the area.
The wreck, which only sunk in 2012, starts at 13 metres and lies at 30 metres. It is 85 metres long and as it is still intact, there is a lot to explore. There are many interesting parts to the wreck and some unusual artefacts including ceramic pottery, glass bottles, a Volkswagen convertible car, and some Buddhist statues.
