Dive Site: Crocodile Island

Location: 11°57'6.91"N; 121°54'31.36"E (Boracay White Beach, Panay, West Visayas, Philippines)

Description: Wall

Depth: 5 - 20 metres (15 - 65 feet)

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

Rating: ****

20 minutes sailing time from White Beach in a Philippine motorboat. Slight current, lots of corals, nudibranchs, unicornfish, garden eels, a big grouper, batfish, clownfish, rapidfish, triggerfish, sweetlips and moorish idol.

From a distance, this small uninhabited island looks like the head of a crocodile. Currents can be fierce except at slack tide, which makes for a beautiful collection of corals. It is a gently sloping wall with several canyons and caves containing a wide diversity of fish.
