CABILAO  ISLAND The island is an excellent site for scuba diving and snorkeling, for both beginners and professional divers.
NAPALING The dive site consists of a steeply sloping wall where one can see black corals and many feather stars. It is a good spot for snorkelling.
TANGNAN WALL This is an easy dive site for Open Water Divers or higher; good for macro diving and macro photography at the shallow depth. This is a good alternative site for diving when the Habagat wind blows and is too strong at the Alona side.
BALICASAG ISLAND  Balicasag is a flat island four kilometers southwest of the Doljo Point off of Pangalo Reef, which is about 30-45 minutes from Panglao Island.  Narrow reefs about nine to 49.5 meters wide, are one of the many reasons why Balicasag Island has gained popularity among many foreign and local divers.
KALIPAYAN (HAPPY WALL) The site is a wall dive in the beginning and slopes at the end of the dive. It is good for snorkeling and is an easy dive site
ARCO POINT (HOLE IN THE WALL) The cave you can find Cardinal fish, Sergeant major fish. Around the entrance of the hole (8m) are well hidden Raggy scorpion fish. Inside the cave at about 10m you can see White-eyed moray eel and Black finned snake eels.  Along the wall you find Groupers, Wrasse, Butterfly fish and Cuttlefish.
CERVESA SHOAL Cervera Shoal is commonly known as Snake Island or Spaghetti Reef due to the thriving amount of sea snakes found here. The site lies directly south of Panglao with a steep slope and a 300 meter wide sandbar.
PAMILACAN ISLAND Its unique distance from the mainland has fortified the dolphin and whale population, and is also known for its barracudas and manta rays. The island is a jump off to an area where at least seven species of marine mammals, including Bryde’s whale and sperm whales, have been sighted. This site boasts fascinating sloped reefs with soft corals and coral heads.
HABAGAT SHIPWRECK Habagat Wreck dive site is located at Danao Beach. At about a depth of 8-12 meters, this site has been rated an easy dive and ideal for snorkeling. This Bohol diving site reveals interesting sea life, and further down the steep slope at 35 meters sits a boat wreck.
GARDEN EELS The site starts off with a gorgeous bow-shaped cliff, followed by a beautiful coral garden on top of the wall. A myriad of small fish can be found here as well. Further down towards the bottom of the sandy slope, are some fascinating and splendid Sand Eels. The Garden Eels site is ideal for night dives.
DOLJO POINT Doljo Point located at Barangay Doljo in Panglao Island, lies precisely northwest of the island and at its ultimate tip. The beach is acclaimed for its ethereal seashells, calm deep clear waters and its florid marine biodiversity. Its location and deep drop off provides divers a good chance of seeing hammerhead sharks, manta rays and whale sharks. The site has a breathtaking wall dive with multiple hard corals and sandy spots.
DANAO BEACH REEF Danao Beach Reef is located off the southwestern tip of Panglao Island just down from Alona beach. It’s another nice reef and wall dive, with a nearby location for quick and easy access for the entire family.
