Dive Sites: West Escarceo

(30m/100' multilevel)

A dive site suitable for all levels. The reef starts in shallow water and follows a steep slope down to 30m/100' . Depending on the current you may find yourself being propelled towards the Canyons or the Hole In the Wall or simply hanging amongst the schools of fusiliers and tunas. Always lots to point out both above and on the reef. Some very large boulder corals and table corals in shallow water make it a favourite for photographers.

Dive Sites: The Canyons

(30m/100ft)

An advanced dive that requires a good dive guide to allow for the currents to sweep you into position. Racing over several small drop-offs below the Hole in the Wall covered in soft corals and sponges, you can duck into and one of the Canyons for a respite from the current. There is much to find on the bottom but primarily it is the large schools of snapper, emperors, sweetlips, barracudas, jacks, trevally and occasional sharks that make this an exciting dive. The dive ends at a 1½m/5' anchor embedded in the coral, where the group can gather before being swept off to the safety stop in the current. Excellent Nitrox dive. The most popular dive site in Puerto Galera – you'll want to go back time after time.
