Blade is a rarely visited dive site because it can only be explored when the weather is excellent, and not to mention it takes around an hour away by boat. But the journey and the wait are worth it once you descend into its unique underwater formation.
The Blade seamounts rise from the sea ground and run for beyond 200 meters, but the wide has never crossed the 7 meters. The top is relatively narrow, while the slope is steep, and the bottom reaches beyond 60 meters deep. When seen from the side, these seamounts look like serrated blades, and that’s the origin of the name of this dive site.
The giant sponges, sea fans, and corals decorated these seamounts, giving a magnificent spectacle, especially with the red whip corals can grow up to 3 meters across. Aside from the fantastic corals, you can also encounter various reef fish species like sweetlips, butterfly, snappers, surgeonfish, and angelfish.
Macro creatures like nudibranchs, shrimps, seahorses, dottybacks, and gobies can be seen hiding between the crevices of the corals, waiting to be spotted.
