LOCATION:
Located some 40 minutes from Salang. On the map, Labas Rock is located to the west of Tioman. It is actually the westernmost island that makes up the archipelago of Tioman. Basically this diving spot is made up by a number of huge boulder rocks without sandy beach or any vegetation on top.

DESCRIPTION:

Visibility was poor when the dive was started in the morning. I estimate the visibility was no more than 8 metres, with a lot of suspended particles, perhaps due to the weather.

After meandering through some coral rubbles, I ran into a purplish-yellow pufferfish, which is deemed as a juvenile despite it's humongous size. There was also a sighting of the ever-belligerent titan triggerfish. There were also orange-spine unicorn fish and plenty of anemones. Soft corals were not abundant, I saw one or two sea-fans and that's about it.

Note: Due to some technicalities, I was not able to take underwater photographs. I may revisit this dive spot, hopefully with better visibility, and have myself equipped with a camera.

MY RATING:
