Dive Sites: Batangas Channel

5m/17ft to 15m/50ft

The channel slopes off gently to a sandy bottom, and in the shallows staghorn coral is abundant, along with large tree corals, sea fans and basket sponges. There is a huge variety of small tropical fish in this area. Anemones with their clown fish families, yellow tail and cleaner wrasse, parrotfish and triggerfish are all common, and if you have a good eye, frogfish can be found camouflaged in the corals. It is best to dive this site on the ebb tide when currents will assist you traveling, this can be a nice drift inside the channel.
