This is a reef that comes alive at night, a relatively shallow site where under the darkness of the night sky you will find all manor of encrustation and and shrimps searching for food. We quite often find moray eels here too along with lion fish and snake eels.
This site is where we conduct most of our first open water dives, its a gentle sloping sandy bottom located between two reefs, starting at a depth of 3-4M and slopping down to over 20M plus. This dive site generally has no currents and can safely be done at depths of less than 12M or down to 18M plus making it ideal for training. Its perfect place to practice your buoyancy and skills before swimming out along the wall of the reef to see what you can find.
Named Small Island (in local language) This dive site starts deep and moves to shallow, dropping down to the sloping reef and starting at 25M in search of the Pigmy Seahorses in the Georgian fans and larger marine life swimming in from the depths, then moving up into the shallow and search for small critters like nudibranch, shrimp, Leaf fish and ghost pipe fish. The coral is a beautiful mix of hard corals in the depths which change in to soft pink and purple soft corals in the shallows.
Shark Rock is a beautiful dive, starting at around 20M with the option of going deeper where again there is a great mix and variety of hard corals and various reef fish and different species of angel and butterfly fish including moorish idols, banner fish and a variety of sweetlips and the stunning clown trigger fish.
Obon Point is a sloping reef starting at 8-10M and disappearing to depths in excess of 40M with an array of channels to investigate the reef weaves in and out following the contour of the island, here we have mostly hard corals in the depths and soft corals in the shallows. Here we can expect to see various reef fish and different species of angel and butterfly fish including moorish idols, banner fish, lion and scorpion fish and a variety of sweetlips and if lucky a visit from Eagle rays and other pelagic life.
This dive site starts in the shallows at a depth of 5 meters on a plateau of hard corals with channels and crevasses to explore descending down to a depth of 18meters, here you will enjoy exploring the reef searching for nudibranch, shrimp and other small critters with a range of different moray eels, while enjoying the reef fish and the resident turtles finishing again in the shallows with a mix of coral and sand patches.
This is one of our personal favourite dives due to the critters we have discovered here. The dive starts with a slopping bottom at approximately 10M and in front of you is a jagged wall that starts at 5M and meets the slopping bottom lower down. The dive can be conducted anywhere between 5 and 30M making it ideal for beginners and advanced divers to enjoy. Here we have found such critters as the banana nudi and orangutan crab and the occasional hawksbill turtle.
1,2 & 3 are all different jump points on the same reef, the reef starts at 5m and drops down an almost vertical wall to a depth of 30M or more. With a mix of hard and soft corals, this site has plenty of marine life to keep you interested such as green margin morays and longnose hawkfish, anomie fish of many kinds and you can search the gorgonian fans for pigmy seahorses.
This Dive site was discovered way back in 1999 by the pioneer divers of this area. Straight down wall from 5 meters down to 27 meters, with a Coral formation like a spiral. This Dive Site is on a beautiful reef at Obon Pt. also known as Tabacay Reef, BRGY Cayhagan. Here you can expect to see large bat fish and green sea turtles.
Black rock is a steep wall dive along the front Obong point, droppign down from 5M to over 30M, here you can search the rock face for moray eels and other critters hiding along the wall until you come back up towards the shallows where the wall turns into a plateau on which you can complete your safety stop and enjoy the soft corals.
The MS Jojo is a freighter that sunk in the Mid 1980’s the skip lies on its star board side and lies in water with a max depth of 33M, the site is quite silty and you will require good buoyancy control and fin technique to enjoy this wreck, you can navigate the whole wreck on one dive and stay within your no deco limits.
The SS Panay was a transport ship for the US during the 2nd world war, it was sunk in the bay of Campomanse by Japanese Planes when they were searching for an enemy in the area. The ship contained among other things gas masks that were previously visible and if lucky you may still find some of the silt at the bottom of the ship. This ship lies at a depth of 42M and lots of larger fish can be found hiding amongst the wreckage.
Eve’s Point Extension is a continuation from Eve’s Point going toward the pier at Campomanes bay, with plenty of table corals to explore, this is a nice relaxed dive site with average visibility but a good chance to find rare critters along the way.
Eve’s Point is on the corner of Campomanes bay and is a wall dive starting at 5M and dropping down to over 30M in places and can be enjoyed at any depth in-between. Being part of the Marine Sanctuary you more opportunity to see a large array of marine life on this dive site.
Habok Habok is a shallower wall starting at 3M down to 16M with lots of cracks and canyons in to search for critters, if lucky you may find some ornate ghost pipefish hiding amongst the coral along with various different reef fish.

Ballo Garden has some beautiful soft corals near the top and you can follow the reef down to the depths where the topography changes to more black rocks and hard corals where you can search for various critters and marine life passing by in the blue. Due to the location, this site is better in low season as the wind can make for a choppy entry and exit
Romantico is a negative entry dive site in front of Punta Ballo beach, dropping down to 26M there is a small cave on top of the reef with a chance of seeing sharks sleeping if you are there the right time of day. The reef then leads back up to the shallows where you can conduct your safety stops and finish the dive enjoying the soft corals at around 5-6M of depth.
Ayres Rock is situated in deeper waters and gives you the opportunity to see larger fish such as Barracuda and Tuna at depts of 18-35M This is a dive for advanced divers and above and not suitable for open water divers due to the depths involved. It’s one you will immensely enjoy and remember.
The Marco Polo is another negative entry site dropping straight down to 30M where you also have the chance of seeing larger fish, along with the possibility of seeing reef sharks early in the morning. This is another exciting dive for the advanced divers.
Mystery Wall is the premier dive site at the front of Nabulao Bay, its an advanced site starting at 36M and dropping down to over 70M plus, due to the strong currents in the area this dive must be conducted during slack tide or it will turn from a wall dive into an exciting drift dive. Here we have seen large groups of jackfish and due to the depths the possibility of larger sharks.
