Start the dive with the steep slope on the left shoulder going towards Cathedral in a northwest direction. At the end of the dive the slope becomes steeper in the north. This can also be dived in the other direction with the slope on your right shoulder going towards Black Forest to the south, depending on where the current is going.
A steep slope with the top at 10m, to the northeast of Balicasag. You see Panglao Island in the north direction.
A true aquarium with many gold band fusilier (Caesio Caerulaurea), big-mouth mackerel (Rastrelliger Kanagurta), midnight snapper (Macolor Macularis), red tooth triggerfish (Odonus Niger) and turtles. Between 10 and 15m are great corals like brown daisy coral (Tubastrerea Micrantha) and some big bucket sponges (Xestospongia Testudinaria).
Good for snorkeling
