Scuba Diving in Apo Island
At Balouarte you can experience an interesting phenomenon created through the volcanic activity under Apo Island. You’ll get to swim through a continuous stream of bubbles and snap some great pics. Another interesting thing here is the small wall covered with stunning soft corals.
Also known as “The Washing Machine,” this is a really fun dive due to the strong currents that can pull you in various directions. You can rest between two rock cliffs and keep an eye out for large pelagics such as manta rays and reef sharks. Whale sharks have been spotted here too.
Chapel gets its name because of a wall filled with small crevices, caverns, and overhangs adorned with hard and soft corals, sea fans, and sponges. It’s a beautiful dive site where you can also spot numerous fish such as Napoleon wrasses, bumphead parrotfish, trevallies, lionfish, and even thresher sharks – if you’re lucky.
“Mamsa” means jackfish in the Visayan language, so you can bet you’ll be seeing a great deal of them at this dive site. The dive starts as a gently sloping reef and then makes way for underwater boulders and a wall covered with soft and hard corals. The strong current in this area brings big schools of jacks, which create an amazing underwater spectacle.
