Plongée sous-marine en Dauin
San Miguel Tires
This site is made up of a pile of car tires that are now home to frogfish, which like to hide out among that. The variety of marine life at this spot is impressive. It is also a popular location for night dives, offering opportunities for spotting stargazers and bumblebee shrimps.
Pura Vida House Reef
Another great macro dive spot, this house reef is also a wreck site with a couple of boats and cars lying on the sea bottom. Pygmy pipehorses, hairy frogfish, flamboyant cuttlefish, and larger fish like snappers, lionfish, as well as stingrays can be found here. Suitable for night diving.
Atlantis House Reef
Black sand, hard corals, and areas of seagrass are some of the main characteristics of this dive site. Schooling razorfish, sea turtles, moray eels, and – of course – the critters of Dauin, can be seen here at Atlantis. Crustaceans are very active during the night when there’s also a chance of seeing the weird hairy frogfish.
“Mamsa,” or jackfish in the local language, has exactly what you’d expect: large schools of jacks swimming in the strong current. The fish sometimes form a protective circle against their predators, the tuna fish. Because of the current, this spot is not suitable for newbies.
Also known as the “washing machine,” this spot is exposed to very strong currents. It's these currents that attract a variety of marine life, including species like trevallies, snappers, and anthias to this area. Sea turtles and bumphead wrasses are also commonly seen here. Luckier ones may even find manta rays, reef sharks, and even whale sharks.
This is one of the first marine sanctuaries in the Philippines and only 15 people or so are allowed to dive here each day. The sloping reef is covered with a variety of soft and hard corals as well as sponges. A very colorful dive that all divers will thoroughly enjoy.
