Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Solomon Reef

The site which technically is outside the marine reserve is a valuable area for turtles, subsistence fishing activities, scuba diving, snorkeling. The reef is in good condition with huge volcanic rock formations composed of isolated patch reef coral, sponge encrusted rocks and brilliant coral growth that rise up from the sandy floor. It creates a habitat and is teeming with many juvenile and adult tropical fish mainly of the grunt and parrot fish families, other fish present are creole wrasse, the ubiquitous brown chromis, black bar soldier fish, squirrel fish, trumpet fish, porcupine fish, puffer fish, and abundance invertebrate like pederson shrimp; arrow crabs, sea cucumbers, banded coral shrimp and squid. The reef is cloaked in sponges, anemones and crinoids. Several eels are also seen there indicating a healthy population of carnivores at this site. The largest percentage of living cover was that of hard coral, primarily varieties of brain coral, maze coral and star corals. Sponges formed the next percentile of living cover; both sponges and corals provide shelter for juvenile species and form the backbone of a healthy reef system. Soft coral in the form of sea rods, sea whips and sea plumes are also present. We also monitor the tour from our base-station and can respond within minutes if needed.
