The Philippine Archipelago – blessed with 7107 islands – is one of the last great frontiers that host a multitude of marine life, defined and still undefined. With the Pacific Ocean in the north-east here is a great biodiversity to be found: single-celled animals, multi-cellular species, mollusks, crustaceans, echinoderms, etc.
One of the reasons the country holds so much appeal to many divers is not just the convenience, but the added satisfaction that most dives are `guided` by experienced Divemasters and Instructors, all of whom are fluent in English, ensuring you get the most out of your chosen dive site.
Kasai Wall (House Reef)
On the house reef you will find a lot of different stuff. Everything from small Damsel fishes to big Green Turtles and also both soft and hard corals. At the top of the reef in Staghorn corals you can find the colorful and shy Mandarin fish.
The reef is very famous in Moalboal so you often see lots of visiting boat. Barracudas, Angelfish, Butterfly fish, Lionfish, Hawkfish, Nudibranch, Pygmy Seahorse, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Batfish, yea, everything you can imagine can appear and if you are lucky you might even see a Whale Shark.
In the beginning of the dive there`s a sandy area where you can spend some minutes looking at all the small fishes. The wall consist of small caves, impressing overhangs at a depth of about 25 m and cracks running all the way from the top of the reef until 40 m. It’s a good idea to bring a dive light when you go here because in the small caves you can see a very beautiful fish called the Comet, which has a pattern resembling the night sky.
On the night dives the wall is transformed to a paradise for Shrimps, Crabs and other night living creatures.
On the Northwest side of the island, right below the mooring line, there is a “chimney” starting at 37meters and exiting at 22 m and 15-18 m. Entering the cave and looking out you will see what is claimed to resemble the Phantom himself – the holes make out the eyes and the mouth! To get the most out of this site it should be dived in the afternoon so that light enters the cave.
The Frogfish is common here as well as shoals of big Midnight Snappers, Barracudas, Tunas and Jacks. Along the wall there are lots of overhangs where you can see various kinds of fish life, like the Lionfish, Clownfish and Pufferfish.
If you dive here, especially early in the morning, you are in for a real treat! The topography here is great! You start from the shallow plateau part in the south where you have a good chance to see Frogfish, Moray Eels and Sea snakes. You then swim over the drop-off and descend along the steep wall, filled with soft corals, which goes down to hundreds of meters of depth.
In the middle of the dive there is a large sandy slope which is home to Moray eels, Octopuses and four different kinds of Anenomefish next to each other.
Make sure to look down below you with big chances to see Whitetip Reef Sharks cruising by in the deep. Greater possibility to see these sharks are in the night when they come out to hunt. Don`t miss a night dive at Pescador Island!
The current can be strong here and sometimes unpredictable for inexperienced divers.
Wall, sandy slopes, small caves and plateaus makes this dive very varied. On the sandy parts of the reef there is lots of the Goby and the shrimp working together to build their home. In the small caves you can look for the Cometfish and the Moray Eels that will be hiding between the cracks. Look out for lots of big Groupers, different types of Triggerfish and huge shoals of Barracudas.
If you are lucky you can find the very tiny Pygmy Seahorse living on the branches small Sea Fans.
This site is almost always sheltered from the wind which makes it a nice and relaxing dive.
