Dive Site Description:

Bahura is our farthermost dive spot down the south coast and takes around 20 minutes to get there.

Depending on the current the divers enter from the south or north of the quite big sanctuary. If the current is gentle only, the divers can return to the entry point at the end of the dive. In the beginning the dive descends to 18 to 25 meters passing by coral blocks into the sanctuary followed by soft coral fields.

After approx. half an hour the ascent into bigger coral blocks starts and ends in the sea grass where the safety stop will be performed.


What to see:

Mantis shrimps, nudy branches, leaf fishes, scorpion fish and little lion fishes can be seen, depending on the season fish ghost pipe fishes and angler fishes are around.

Plenty of nudy branches can be found mostly at the same spots, sea turtles and lonesome barracudas are roaming through the sanctuary. In the center of the dive spot plenty of brain or hat corals are resembling the chocolate hills on Bohol Island.

In general Bahura is a very diversified dive spot in terms of submarine landscape. At the end of the dive where smaller coral blocks are sitting in the short sea grass the resemblance to Swiss alps is striking and one is expecting to spot a cow at any moment.
