I love when dive sites have a story behind them. This is the case of Mike’s Point.
During the second World War, the U.S army confused the reef with a Japanese ship, and dropped bombs on it!
The topography of the site has consequently completely changed. Nowadays, this is a very nice dive site with different parts.
You start your dive below nice overhangs and above big crevices. You cross the road of platax, sweetlips… You can explore the rocky wall with a torch to spot nudibranchs and other small critters.
Then you start your ascent and stay above a nice field of soft and hard corals for your safety stop.
It is the opportunity to spot orang-utan crabs and nudibranchs. I haven’t seen many big guys around, apart from a couple of whitetip sharks.
This site is more about the whole scenery.
