“Good Chance to See Mandarinffish”
Review of Mandarin Fish Lake

Mandarin Fish Lake

Reviewed 5 April 2016

The marine lake is very clear and extremely shallow, so it's easy for any snorkeler. Usually you only see Mandarinfish at dusk when they come out to mate, but these were out during daylight hours. They are significantly smaller than what you see on the reef (only a few centimeters), but they aren't hard to find once you know what to look for.

The lake has beautiful and distinct corals, the beautiful Mandarin fish, Upside Down Jellyfish and even Nudibranch! The nocturnal Mandarin fish is out at 11am and if patient, you can photo!!

This is a lagoon where u could see the small mandarin fish. I expend like 1 hr looking for the fish and I finally found it. You can also see some other fishes around. The above water view is also nice.

I did a Kayak Tour with Blue Planet and Mandarin Fish lake was one of the stops. It was really cool. I'm not used to that mandarin fishes are coming out on daytime. It is really cool to take pictures! It is really shallow and if your laying calm on the surface they will show up :)

Ideal to stark with easy diving at the beginning of a liveaboard tour or just make a boat ride with your diving Operator. You must be Patient and behave exactly to what your guide advises you. Then you will have the unique Chance to watch the half-secong Long marriage of a pair of mandaring fish. Fascinating. Best time is the beginning of the night.
