Pamilacan Island

Pamalican Island

Located around 40 minutes in the opposite direction to Balicasag, Pamilacan Island offers fantastic diving with 4 sites that we visit regularly. From spectacular walls to corals gardens, Pamilacan can often experience some great currents for drift diving.

We often see turtles here, although they are little shyer here. Whale sharks have been spotted and occasionally we see a “storm” of jacks. Macro critters abound with a huge range of crustaceans and nudibranchs. Sea snakes and many types of Moray are often spotted out and about on the reef hunting for prey.

Normally done as a 3-dive trip we often visit Sunken Island on the way out, then either do 1 or 2 dives at Pamilacan before heading back with a 3rd dive at Arco point.

Dive sites we can visit:

  • Sunken Island (on the way out depending on currents)
  • Spanish Tower
  • Coral Garden
  • The Sanctuary
  • Arco Point(on the way back depending on conditions)

Open water divers are welcome, but we recommend a minimum of advanced open water (or equivalent) with some experience of drift diving to get the best from the trip.
