Dive SIte : Magicienne Rock

Brief :
This dive site got its name from its discovery by Admiral Keppel who first came to Singapore in 1837. The vessel HMS Magicienne, the 24 gun frigate was passing through these waters at that point in time when this rock formation was discovered. The rock pinnacle rises from 8m below the surface and the surrounding coral plateaus are the habitat of large manta rays, whale shark (normally spotted in the early part of the season March/April), rainbow runner, barracudas and lots of other equatorial reef species.
