Scuba Diving in Panglao Island, Bohol, the Philippines

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Rico's Wall

Location: 09°31.048N; 123°40.843E (Balicasag Island, Bohol, Philippines)

Bearing: 253° from BelleviewRock Resort

Description: Wall dive

Depth: 5 - 40 metres (16 - 130 feet). Most interesting at 10m (30'), not so interesting below 30m (100')

Visibility: 15 - 30 metres (50 - 100 feet)

Rating: ***

Easy dive site for PADI Open Water divers or higher with a current range of 0 - 2 knots.

Start the dive with the wall on the left going south or right shoulder going north. The drop off / wall is front of BelleviewRock resort on the west side of the island. The dive site has many small caverns, ledges and reef over-hangs. If you are going in north direction you will probably finish the dive at Cathedral and if your dive is in south direction you finish at the dive site Rudy's Rock.

Large schools of Vlamming's unicornfish (Naso Vlamingii), silver jacks, big eye trevally (Caranx Sexfasciatus) swim in circles like a tornado. Midnight snapper (Macolor Macularis) and many different kinds of big sweetlips (Haemulidae Family) also patrol.

Good for snorkelling. The reef top is very shallow with a few corals.
