Rating: ****

Easy dive site for PADI Open Water divers or higher with a current range of 0 - 1 knots.

Start the dive with the wall on the left shoulder going in the direction of exit point from Black Forest, or have the wall on your right shoulder going in the direction to Rico's Wall. Deep drop-off wall on the southwest side of Balicasag Island. The land orientation is marked with a stick in shallow water in front of the beach.

Soft and hard corals, small caverns and crevices. Often schools of big eye trevally (Caranx Sexfasciatus) swimming in circles like a tornado as well as midnight snapper (Macolor Macularis) swimming among sweetlips (Haemilidae Family).

Good for snorkeling
