In just 2-3 meters in shallow waters in Nalusuan island marine sanctuary, you may see some colourful hard and soft corals. You will encounter some giant clams, groupers, eels, starfish, sea urchins, some colourful small fishes. I suggest that you should bring your own action camera to take picture while snorkelling.
