Hibo Reef


DEPTH: 18 to 40M+

TRAVEL TIME : from Sabang 30 mins, from White Beach 10 mins

Our Instructor Andrew loves diving at Hibo Reef. He says "it begins with a free descent to about 20 meters and from here you can choose any depth you are qualified to go to". There are many varieties of fish here, Andrew has seen; Reef Sharks, Giant Groupers, Titan Trigger fish, Clown Trigger fish (as well as many smaller varieties). Turtles are regularly seen taking a well earned rest, after battling the (often) strong currents. The wall is covered with 3m Gorgonian Sea Fans and large Black Coral Trees, not seen at other spots locally.

Tamaraw Reef


DEPTH: 3 to 16M

TRAVEL TIME : from Sabang 25 mins, from White Beach 5 mins

This is a relaxing shallow dive, starting in 3m - 4m of water, you can stay at less than 10m and still see many wonderful coral formations and fish, or you can head a bit deeper, still less than 20 metres, and find a whole different landscape. You will swim your way around huge Barrel Sponges and a thriving colorfull reef. Turtles are often found here (sometimes in groups). Over the sandy areas, Stingrays lay on the sand. Home to Leaf Fish and Frog Fish, this is a very good site for phoptoghraphy and also a good Night Dive.

Alma Jane Wreck

Alma Jane Wreck # 3

DEPTH: 24 to 32M

TRAVEL TIME : from Sabang 5 mins, from White Beach 25 mins

The Alma Jane Wreck was a Filipino cargo vessel that was sunk in 2003. The wreck itself is deteriorating, but the coral formations and the multitude of fish and critters keep this wreck literally alive. The Alma Jane Wreck stands, almost vertically, on the bottom of the ocean and reminds you of wrecks such as the Titanic or other cruisers that sank.

The Wreck has much to offer, inside, outside and on the underside (if it were still afloat). You can always see the resident sweetlips and batfish toward the stern, and dropping down to the rudder. You will see scorpionfish at the outside walls of the vessel trying to blend into the environment. Other residents of the Alma Jane Wreck include; lionfish, snappers, frogfish, trigger fish and trumpet fish.
