BATANGAS DIVING SEASON

Although diving here is possible all year round, it is best to dive here between November and June. Typhoon season intensifies between July and September resulting in choppy waves and poor visibility.


DIVESITES

Cathedral Marine Sanctuary

Approximately 23 meters off Bagalangit Point lies a giant rock formation that looks like a roofless underwater amphitheatre. Originally barren, the Cathedral has been seeded with corals. Moorish idols, parrot fish, and the usual reef dwellers all cluster around divers and peer into their masks.

Layag-Layag Reef

Extensive coral formation on a shallow, steep slope. On the south side of this open-water area, a ledge drops to about 20 to 30 meters from close to the surface.

Sombrero Island

On the surface, this island resembles a hat underwater, so its profile make the name Sombrero even more appropriate. The rim of the "hat" stretches a long way underwater from north to south. Gorgonians, black coral, shells, turtles, rays, grunts, jacks, snappers, and a great variety of soft corals are scattered all over the place. Currents are normally strong during the full moon.

Sepok

The rim of the drop-off due west of Sepok Point and running southwest is a very good divesite with a wide variety of marine life. A great number of small reef fish dart in and out of the numerous corals.

Mapating Rock

This open reef is for experienced divers only and its exploration requires help from local dive guides. The rock itself is surrounded by a fairly shallow area at about 12 meters, ending in a series of drop-offs running down to about 20 meters or more.
