Redang Archipelago

Situated 45 kilometers north east of the State Capital of Kuala Terengganu, the Redang archipelago which comprises nine islands was gazetted a marine park in 1994. The goal was to have this archipelago conserved and protected to perpetuity, providing appreciation and understanding for present and future generations. Since the inception, the already astonishing concentration of marine life that abounded the islands had further flourished and attracted tourists and scientists from all over the world.

The reefs of the Redang Islands boast of more than 55 genera with over 100 species of hard corals with the rest being soft corals and sea fans, over 100 species of reef and pelagic fish and the green and hawksbill turtles. Name any marine life found in the tropical Indo-Pacific and it is be likely to be encountered here.

The waters exhibit wide and diverse types of dive sites. Good for 4 to 10 days of easy and relax diving with mild currents, if at all any, warm (26oC to 32oC) and shallow dives. Visibility underwater is generally good, between 12 to 24 meters
