Location: 09°34.421N; 123°42.796E (Doljo, Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines)
Description: Wall dive
Depth: 3 - 45 metres (10 - 148 feet). Most interesting at 7 - 15m (23 - 50'), not so interesting below 25m (80')
Visibility: 10 - 30 metres (30 - 100 feet)
Easy dive suitable for PADI Advanced Divers or higher.
Start the dive with the wall on the right shoulder, going northwest. The entry point is where you see the fishing hut on pillars in the water standing in line with the south point from Panglao, bearing 125°. There is a beautiful hard and soft coral garden at this site. Lots of small fish like anthias, raggy scorpionfish, ribbon eels (Rhinomuraena quaesita), one-stripped fusiliers (Pterocaesio tessellata). At the end of the dive it you can have a slight current against you, return in shallow water in a south direction if it's getting too strong. A great place to make your safety stop, there is much to see on the shallow 4m sandy pads. You can bring a dive light to look in the small caves along the wall.
Good for snorkelling.
