I last dived this site on 2 September 2010
Also called: Tanjung Rusa
Tanduk Rusa is one of several dive sites around Gili Banta, a small island between Komodo and Sumbawa. The more well-known Gili Banta site, GPS Point, does not always have the best conditions. Tanduk Rusa covers the area around the northwest point of the island. Dives usually start to the west of the ridge extending out from the point. Once you round the point, the reef becomes very flat and is covered by huge mushroom-shaped corals.
Tanduk Rusa is usually dives around slack tide, when currents are minimal. Your captain and cruise director will usually chose the Gili Banta site that has the best conditions for your dive.
