What is Muck (Critter) Diving

0

Muck. Yuck. Right? Wrong! 

If you have never heard of muck diving before, it does sound completely unappealing and actually the reality of what you are doing is essentially as it sounds. Muck diving, critter diving, rubble diving – whatever you call it, is poorly named and gives a negative connotation for an environment where ones’ eyes widen again and again with each fascinating new critter.

Wakatobi Dive Resort

It isn’t hard to understand how the dive site known as The Zoo got it’s name. Located just minutes from the dock at Wakatobi Resort, this sloping reef following a stair-stepped profile is home to a prolific and varied collection of marine life, all concentrated in a relatively small area. This is one of the region’s best macro dives, with residents that include frogfish, ghost pipefish, mantis shrimp, leaf fish, funky hairy squat lobster, different species of pygmy seahorses and more.

Rather than pop to the surface, as most divers do after entering the water, I stay under and spin backwards, trying to catch a glimpse of the monster below. Read more
