Divers are amazed at the amount of fish they can see at Cape Kri. They ascent from their first dive and start excited conversations about the sheer diversity. Gerald R. Allen, renowned marine biologist said after a dive at Cape Kri that "this is the most fishes ever seen on a single dive over a career spanning almost 30 years." He counted 283 fish species on that dive! Huge schools of trevally engulf divers at Cape Kri (Cape Cri).
Of course much of that diversity is made up of similar species. There are many different varieties of reef fish including snapper, fusilier, sweetlips, butterflyfish and angelfish. Large schools of reef fish literally engulf divers as they fin over the reef. What gets most divers excited though, are the big schools of chevron barracuda which can be seen in tornadoes here. Plus large schools of giant trevally and dogtooth tuna. Another favorite sighting is the huge Napoleon wrasse. Reef sharks can also be seen.
Coral is also abundantly healthy in hard and soft coral varieties, sponges and sea fans. The macro stuff is equally diverse with scorpionfish and frogfish waiting to be discovered along with multitudes of nudibranchs and shrimps. The reef is a sloping wall down to 40m. Visibility is excellent. Currents can be strong at times. This is a dive site that you'll want to return to.
