Diving in Togean Islands
Not a dive site for sufferers of vertigo nor for the faint of heart, the north side of Dominic Rock features a drop off into the black abyss. Already at 40 metres, you can imagine the depths we are talking about here! Here there's a good chance to see mature eagle rays swooping past, grey reef sharks, and large big-eye trevally circling the nearby overhangs.
The rock is festooned with green branching cup corals, mauve, lime and cream shaded gorgonian fans, barrel sponges, purple dendronephthya soft tree corals, creamy wire corals, and yellow whip corals. Large black frogfish squat motionless on the rock and midnight snapper ar ever present.
Queensland groupers occupy the ledges of the other nearby boulders, barramundi stalk the territory, and fantail rays often come to life when you pass over, exploring the nearby area.
An altogether adventurous Togean Islands diving site, Dominic Rock lies at the northern most and deepest section of the reef.
