DIVE SITES LIST

Black Forest (Balicasag Is.)

The name Black Forest is derived from the fact that there are patches of dark green coral around 40 meters below the cliff of the dive site, and it looks like a black forest underwater. When the weather is clear and the visibility is high underwater, it can be seen at about 30 meters, which is very spectacular.

Another feature of this dive site is a submarine grassland about 10 meters above the cliff, which is the canteen of the turtles. Every day when you go into the water at noon, you can see turtles taking their food and eating underwater. On the edge of the cliff at a depth of about 15 meters, there are various types of hard and soft corals, colorful and very beautiful. This is also the famous dive site where Jack Storm appears most often.

Pamilacan

The dive site is on both sides of the island of Pamilacan. The left side of the island is a cliff, and there is a high probability of wild whale sharks appearing here.

On the right side of the island is a large slope with dense hard and soft corals of various sizes on the slope at a depth of about 18 meters.

When the weather is clear and the visibility is high, you can see endless coral groups, like a carpet! Very impressive. Down the slope to a depth of about 30 meters, there is a chance to see a group of sea wolves of about one meter, and a huge Jack fish school. Unlike Jack Storm in Balicasag, Jack Fish in Pamilacan wins in size, while Jack Fish in Balicasag wins in number.
