Okobe Thila is a fascinating dive site in terms of unusual reef formation and diversity of marine life. It is smaller than most Thilas (submerged reefs) and consists of 3 main coral blocks or peaks. Okobe is usually dived by descending to a bigger Thila which is next to Okobe and crossing underwater. Then the place can be dived anyway the diver likes depending on current. It is easy to dive in a moderate-strong current as well as divers can find protection and swim up current. The reef is covered with gorgonians, sea fans, Faulkners coral and a variety of soft corals. Fish life is diverse and includes Napoleons, schools of Snappers, larger Groupers, White Tip Sharks, Sting rays, Sweetlips and lots. Being a reef in the middle of the sea Okobe attracts a variety of pelagic life such as Trevallies which comes to hunt at the reef, Dog Tooth Tuna and Barracuda. Silver Tip Sharks have been sighted on occasion as well.
