  • Eastern Fields

    Eastern Fields are real oceanic reef systems which lies a few 100 miles of southern Port Moresby and northern Coral Sea. Like any other oceanic reefs, the Eastern Fields appear to surge coming from the abyssal absolute depths. The outside walls of Eastern Fields plummet countless feet towards the seabed beneath. Eastern Fields are the relic of a few long forgotten volcanic islands which has gradually submerged back to the sea over the years.

    Diving within the Eastern Fields is most likely best referred to “gorilla diving”. It’s undoubtedly not for the weak hearted, nor for the newbie. The diving is performed through deep water, together with strong currents, and among critters with little regard for divers. Should you wish to be surrounded by a whirling school of barracuda or check out a number of grey reef sharks having fun with a feeding mania, in that case this is possibly the ideal destination ever to go.

    Still Eastern Fields has a number of sophisticated astonishments as well. The fattest, biggest, and juiciest soft coral trees on earth; not really one of your cauliflower-sized numbers here – they are usually larger than a human being, not to mention in the most stunning pinks, blues, purples, yellows and reds. Look among such deeply hued fronds so you can discover coral shrimps and crabs, nudibranchs, and petite shells. At the barn door, you will see proportions of seafans, around the downstream area of which schools of glassfish situates from the capturing currents. Within the seafans do usually observed gobies resemble wonderfully the color of their habitation; cowries that actually have small bunchy growths that complement the feeding polyps with the sea fan. And among the multitude and multi-hued feather stars that rest on each coral head, you could possibly even locate incredible rhinopias.
