Western Rocky dive site in Burma
At the South Western border of Mergui Archipelago, Western rocky might be the most well known dive site in Myanmar
Western Rocky is one of the archipelago’s southernmost dive sites in Myanmar and perhaps one of its most exciting in terms of the breadth of diving on offer. Western Rocky itself is a small island, sporting a dive passage right through its heart that just manages to be lit by daylight all the way through. A guest appearance by a spotted eagle ray is not uncommon and there are good chances of seeing rare species including the famous whale shark, bow mouth guitar fish, harlequin shrimp, frog fish and sea horse, while the anemone-lined cavity is full of oversize lobsters and crabs. The four islets off shore are worth a dive on their own, their walls blanketed with clams and colourful sponges, and busy with big reef squid and chevron barracuda. Canny divers who plan their itinerary well can enjoy a spectacular night dive on the south wall where the red and orange coral are lit to perfection by the moonlight.
