Scuba Diving in Panglao Island, Bohol, the Philippines
Dive Site: Habagat Wreck
Location: 09°32.408N; 123°45.358E (Danao Beach, Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines)
Description: Wreck and steep slope dive
Depth: 8 - 34 metres (25 - 112 feet). Most interesting at 8 - 12m (25 - 39'), not so interesting below 40m (130')
Visibility: 15 - 25 metres (50 - 80 feet)
Easy dive suitable for PADI Advanced Divers or higher.
Normally start the dive at the Habagat wreck at 35m, then come up along the sandy slope in a northwest direction to the s-shaped wall with an overhang. Keep the wall on the right shoulder, heading west.
Watch your NDL if you plan to dive the wreck that was sunk in the year 2000. You can bring a dive light to look in the wreck and the small caves in the wall. Swimming above the wreck are tall fin batfish (Platax teira), under the wreck are big lionfish (Pterois volitans), one giant angelfish (Antennarius commersonii) and many different kinds of cardinal fish in the wreck. At the S-shaped wall look for angelfish and at the slope look among the feather stars for harlequin ghost pipefish (Solenostomus paradaxus).
Good for snorkelling.
