Philippines :: Puerto Galera : Shark Caves

This is probably the most famous dive on Puerto Galera, but treacherous currents mean that it's for experienced divers only. Divemasters will assess the conditions and abilities of divers at shallower depths first - about 18m. It is normally a drift dive.

Whitetip sharks can usually be seen as well as large grouper and other big fish. There is a narrow cave nearby that accommodates sleeping sharks and as it is possible to get really close to them, this location is popular for photography. The depth of 28m will limit your time there though.

Close by is The Pink Wall with masses of cauliflower corals. This is also good for photography and a popular night dive.

Marine life is prolific and in addition to the sharks, you are likely to encounter blue spotted stingrays, octopus, moray eels, lionfish and scorpionfish. Blue triggerfish can be seen above you in shallower depths. This is a site not to be missed.
