Best dive sites in Bohol

Balicasag Fish Sanctuary – Thriving with marine life, this dive site is located in a marine protected area where the number of divers and fishing is restricted. This is a wall dive that is characterised by many ledges and overhangs which are great places for finding critters. The highlight here is the tornado-like school of jacks and an abundance of all kinds of fish including snappers, trevally, surgeonfish and other colourful reef species. Arco Point – Also known as “Hole in the Wall”, this site features a tunnel which runs through the wall starting from just 5 metres/15 feet and ending at 16 metres/52 feet. The site offers excellent photography opportunities and highlights include ghost pipefish, banded sea snakes, blue ring octopus and frogfish. Bohol Divers Wreck – This deep steel wreck was sunk in 2011 and lays at between 31 metres/102 feet and 37 metres/121 feet. Despite being a relatively “new” wreck you’ll find an array of unusual critters including pipefish, ghost pipefish, flamboyant cuttlefish and octopus. Doljo Point – This Panglao Island dive site has a candy box selection of coral species from giant sea fans and barrel sponges through to elephant ear, leather corals and healthy stone corals. The dive is along a steep slope / wall and in the deeper sections there are seasonal sightings of white tips and hammerhead sharks. The shallow sections offer an abundant mix of reef fish. Snake Island – This sloping reef and wall site is famous for the large population of black and white banded sea snakes that reside here. This is also an excellent macro photography site. Look out for a variety of nudibranch, shrimp and bottom dwelling species. Occasional reef sharks and barracuda are spotted in the blue.

What to see

From macro to pelagics, Bohol has it all. Many sites are teeming with nudibranchs, seahorses and mantis shrimps. Sponges, soft corals, and giant fans make every dive beautiful.

Of course, fish are also plentiful. Lionfish, glass fish, fusiliers, frogfish, schooling jack, snake eels, moray eels, triggerfish, parrotfish, devil fish, stonefish, sea snakes and napoleon wrasse are frequently seen.

On the bigger side of things, lucky divers might encounter barracuda, turtles, reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and even manta rays.

When filling in your log books from diving Bohol, you’ll be writing so small to get it all on the page that your hand will be aching for days.
