Indonesia :: Kalimantan : Samama

Samama island is also very close to Sangalaki and Kakaban so is easily accessible from both. The dive sites here have been described as an underwater naturalists dream teeming with macro life. The waters surrounding Samama are shallow and ideal for beginners and photographers looking to capture that magical undersea lighting. Large swathes of colourful soft corals and sponges intermingled with hydroids and sea whips give way to massive cabbage, staghorn and plate coral colonies. Around the edges of the sand patches iridescent blue ribbon eels can be seen along with many juvenile fish that take shelter in the islands mangrove root system labyrinths. Pygmy seahorses have been found here and there are myriad nudibranchs to be discovered.
