Scuba Diving in Panglao Island, Bohol, the Philippines
Dive Site: Doljo Point
Location: Doljo, Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines
Description: Steep slope / wall dive
Depth: 8 - 35 metres (25 - 115 feet). Most interesting at 10 - 15m (30 - 50'), not so interesting below 30m (100')
Visibility: 15 - 22 metres (50 - 72 feet)
Easy dive suitable for PADI Advanced Divers or higher.
Start the dive with the wall on the left shoulder, going west. Entry / exit can be difficult when the 'Amihan' wind blows. Many giant sea fans, bucket sponges, elephant ear coral and green leather corals as well as angelfish can be spotted. Watch your depth at the beginning of the dive, it's easy to go too deep here. Watch the blue water for mackerel and squid or young barracudas. In deeper water there is a good possibility of seeing white tip or hammerhead sharks (February and March).
It is possible to reach by jeepney or car, land entry and exits are simple to make but be careful at the reef top. By boat the trip is takes a long time because you have to go all the way around the shallow east tip from Panglao. The outrigger boats can not make a short cut except at maximum high tide.
