Description of dive site:

The whole island was declared to be a protected marine area by the government.

Like all the dive spots on Apo Island, Largahan is coverd with beautiful corals. The reef top is in about 10 m and full of coral blocks in different sizes.

After 8 – 10 minutes diving over the reef top you reach the steep coral slope where you descend to 30 m. Diving with the reef on your left shoulder you ascend slowly in the multilevel-profile back to the reef top.

First you dive along a small wall until you reach in about 15 m a sandy area. Due to volcanic activities, bubbles rise from the sandy ground. It makes you feel being in a whirlpool. You end your dive on the reef top close to a big rock in 5 m with a safety.

This dive can be made in shallow waters only, so we recommend it for beginners too.



What to be seen:

There are lots of different reeffish on the reef top.

Seasnakes and turtles can pass by any time. Scorpionfish are well camouflaged in the variety of the corals.

Different kind of mackrels patrol along the reef. You can find also nudibranches and flatworms, pufferfish, triggerfish, lionfish, different kind of groupers, parrotfish and many other animals, corals and plants.

Thats why Apo Island is considered as one of the best dive spots in the Philippines. The huge marine life and the „bubble bath „ are worth diving this spot more than once.
