Napoleon Reef, Pemuteran, Bali
Trip Time: 5 - 10 minutes
Current: Nothing to Moderate
Brief: Small Wall on one side but mainly a gently slope, very nice soft coral garden

Description: Again two kilometre offshore, a flat topped gently sloping reef, with a small wall towards the south side, depth range same as Close Encounters. Hit the hardest by El Nino, Napoleon has shown a tremendous amount of recovery and is again home to a healthy variety of coral and marine life. The soft coral garden towards the west is particularly pretty; offering a nice range of gorgonians heading off into the blue. The deep end Napoleon offers the usual and unusual fish from Close Encounters plus rays and cuttlefish are a regular sighting. Also the site of a small wreck, the Zoe, ex-dive boat scuttled back in 2004 and beyond the wreck lies an interesting little deeper reef. This deeper section, nicknamed 'Beyond' Napoleon, has interesting fields of short staghorn and sponges.

Napoleon is also one of our regular night dive spot, offering a wide variety of night critters plus cat shark.

Good snorkeling location.
