Exploring Singapore's City Reefs!

Seafans or Gorgonians
When you surface from a dive at Hantu, the first things you see are oil refineries and industry all around. Surfacing from a dive at Keppel Bay, you’re surrounded not only by some of the most expensive real-estate on the island, but also by cranes and sky scrapers! Who’d have thought just putting your face under the water could yield such beautiful images!

See all the pictures!

    Amazingly full of life, isn’t it ? Considering the relatively short amount of time that the pontoons/marina have/has been there.

    Were there currents below ?
