Interesting walls and overhangs make up the north side of Maagiri, where you can often find nurse sharks and stingrays sleeping in the small caves. Look out for the small gobies running up and down the whip corals. For the beady eyed diver, tiny whip coral cowries can be seen. Large schools of blue-stripe snappers, and banner fish congregate close to the eastern side of the Giri. The top reef is packed full of parrot fish of every colour imaginable and keep your ears open for the sound of them munching away at the reef. Moray eels and cleaner shrimps can also be spotted along the walls.
