The small island is visible from the village in Salang but can only be accessed by dive boats. A boat ride will take you about 5 minutes to Soyak Island (or also known as Soyah Island). The dive commenced on the north side of the rocky island and drifted west.
Visibility was poor during my morning dive. A lot of suspended particles and even stronger current. Soyak is well-known for its unpredictable current which can pose a nightmare if you are swimming against the current flow, or an excellent opportunity for drift-diving.
Dive depth was about 12 meters only. I saw a leatherjacket here, perhaps the same one I spotted when snorkeling at Salang Reef South. My dive master spotted a pair of Moorish Idols, which I missed (but then I've seen them almost everywhere else).
There were also gold spotted trevally, a lot of bandit fusiliers and a few sweet lips. The soft corals here were much better than Labas Rock, which I dived earlier. A lot more gorgonian sea fans, although it was hard to admire them with the strong currents.
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.
