Pulau Sembilan Snorkeling & Diving
Pulau Sembilan Snorkeling
If you love marine life, then you should consider Pulau Sembilan Snorkeling. Picture yourself getting out of your camping tent in the morning and you are right at the coastline. That was specifically what we were expecting so we planned to stay overnight in outdoors tents, even though it was feasible to do a one-day journey to Pulau Sembilan. And thanks to our guides, we did not also need to pitch our very own tents. The camping site was quite well outfitted with fundamental requirements for individuals. My friend requested 2 mid-sized four-men outdoors tents considering that there were five of us. We both had more area to sleep pleasantly during the night whereas the other three needed to squeeze right into their tent.
The island group is particularly popular for its wonderful angling opportunities, yet the Pulau Sembilan themselves are also quite attractive. If you love angling, Pulau Sembilan is the place to go. You could charter a boat at Lumut or from Pangkor Island; or attempt among the tour workplaces in Sungei Wang shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur. Lots of citizens go out in the weekends for a Pulau Sembilan Fishing Trip. There is an annual competition for fishermen, the Pulau Sembilan Angling Safari. Just recently, lots of anglers also fish at a brand-new place close-by Marina Island, as this is nearer to Lumut.
Pulau Sembilan Snorkeling is a prominent hobby and we were informed that we could run into sea cucumbers, sea urchins and also some other little fishes. My adventurous close friend recommended we put on our snorkelling equipment and head out to the sea. But all prematurely, we experienced strong currents, which drew us out towards much deeper waters. The waves breaking on the coastline likewise churned up lots of sand and made the waters much more turbid. An idea here: keep an eye out for the rocks! I got scuffed when the current carried me there.
