Tombatuni Point

A 25 minute boat ride from Munda, this Tombatuni is an island ringed by sheer drop offs of over 500 metres into the blue waters of Blanche Channel. This wall has masses of barrel sponges, beautiful soft corals and fans, populated by an array of colourful and hard-to-find critters.

The point can attract big schools of fish, turtles, rays, sharks and passing pelagics. Keep an eye out on the blue water though, as migrating Hammerheads can pass by!
