El Nido is rich in marine life. You are likely to see an array of wildlife including dugong, turtles, manta rays and the occasional whale shark plus many corals, walls & tunnels. There are over 30 dive sites ranging in depth from six metres to 30 metres plus.
|DILUMACAD||Featuring the cave entrance at 12m that’s wide enough for two divers to pass through, this year-round site is El nido’s nearest reasonable diving and is therefore popular with local dive centers.|
|INAMBUYOD BOULDERS||A steep wall with some lovely green corals and impressive gorgonians, this dive’s main attraction is the chance to encounter large pelagics.|
|TRES MARIAS||Tres Marias is a rewarding dive and a good snorkeling site with lots of reef fish and colorful corals. Also of interest is the endemic Pomacanthus annularis, an angelifish with an extra stripe, found only here and at nearby Inambuyod Boulders.|
|MINILOC ISLAND||Miniloc Island offers four sites, Tagbao Island, Biet Point, Twin Rocks and The Wall, all of which are relatively calm and sheltered year-round. Both sides are good training grounds for novice divers and can also be appreciated by experienced snorkelers.|
|MATINLOC ISLAND||Matinloc Island is an island unaccessible by boat. You have to swim underwater through an opening until you break through the water and find a strip of white sand bordering a hidden cove. The island houses the Kulasa Beach and dive sites namely, Banayan point, Bikanayos Rock and Inbogal Point.|
|ABDEEN’S REEF||The area is known to have a variety of fishers and good corals. Table, Hard, Staghorn and Mushroom are abundant in the site, while Garden eels, butterflies, dumsel, fusiliers, rabbits, wrasses, unicorns and angels and other tropical fishes roam around.|
|THE LABERINTH||This is a boulder formation creating a special environment underwater. One can dive trough the narrow corridors they create, and the occasional swim-through. Some macro life can be found here.|
