Our local reefs off the beach at Alona are awesome, we have a fantastic collection of walls and sandy slopes with healthy corals and sandy areas at about 5m, perfect for relaxed and interesting safety stops. A versatile range of sites, from the majestic walls, a swim through at Arco point, sandy slopes at PPB, Jeepney wrecks at BBC. Packed with tropical fish of every species and a huge trove of macro sea-life, it’s a diver’s paradise, especially good for photography. Maybe you come across our resident giant moray, a flamboyant cuttlefish, some frogfish, Scorpion fish, giant cuttlefish, octopus and squid, or if you have your deep certificate you can go see our aesthetic wreck at 35m. About 30m off the bottom of the wall and surrounded by sand, host to a huge variety of sea life The Habagat wreck sank around 9 years ago during a typhoon. This small pleasure cruiser landed upright and is in great shape with frogfish, lionfish, bat fish, nudibranchs and a load of other sea life on and within it. We dive these sites every day, up to 4-5 times a day and depending on your certification level you can also night dive at the local sites.
Our guides have been diving these sites for years and know good spots to find the interesting habitats and there is always a chance for an encounter with one of the whale sharks that glide by every day. Within 2-10mins away by speedboat, you do the surface intervals back at the beach for a snack or light lunch at the many restaurants next to our dive shop.
