Thus leaving much of dive site uncrowded.

Marine life that can be seen here includes sharks, rays, nudibranch, bumphead parrotfish, jacks, lizardfish, occasional whitetip sharks and a wide variety of hard and soft coral. Before being declared a marine park, Pulau Tenggol was a favourite hunting ground for spear-fishermen, particularly for snappers and groupers.
