Apo Reef North Wall

Max Depth: 30m

Visibility: 15 - 40+m

Currents: Mild to Moderate

A pristine hard coral reef top and vertiginous wall decorated with gorgonians, barrel sponges and sea-fans are what divers can expect to see. Best done as a first dive by experienced divers, several species of sharks can be seen here especially during the colder winter months from December to early March. Pelagic species such a king mackerel, dogtooth tuna also can be seen cruising the walls while turtles graze on the roots of hard branching corals on the reef top.

Apo reef South East Wall 

Maximum Depth: 5-30 meters

Visibility: 15 to 30 meters

Currents: Mild 

Two mooring buoys across a gorgeous white sand beach marks the Southeast Point of Apo mayor island-the largest land mass in Apo Reef. The current often tends to split here and divers can ride it either east or west. Start the dive by hanging out at the point for the best fish action and do the drift midway into your dive time. Schools of pyramid butterfly-fish and black snappers will let you know you are in the right place. Fish love this mix of currents and tend to be very busy with feeding, especially in the early hours of the morning. 

During the drift stay close to the edge of the drop off so you can get a view of both the reef top where you may spot a turtle or two but keep an eye in the depth below for cruising white tip sharks.
