Description: Wall dive at the beginning, slope at the end of the dive

Depth: 3 - 25 metres (10 - 80 feet). Most interesting at 7 - 12m (23 - 39'), not so interesting below 25m (80')

Visibility: 10 - 25 metres (30 - 80 feet)

Rating: ***

Easy dive suitable for PADI Advanced Divers or higher.

Start the dive with the slope on the right shoulder, going southwest.

This is long dive site good for two dives. It's connected to Habagat Wreck at Danao Beach. Nice blue and table corals, sea fans, brown daisy coral (Tubastraea micrantha) grow on the reef and you can find dothead rockcod (Cephalopholis microprion) and small barraduca. With a good dive master you will also see the black and yellow harlequin ghost pipefish (Solenostomus paradoxus). Halfway along the wall, look in caves and crevices for the 'comet' (Calloplesiops altivelis) and the banded pipefish (Doryrhamphus dactyliophorus). In the months of May and June the aggressive blue-finned or titan triggerfish (Balistoides viridescens) can be found here.

Good for snorkelling.
