Dive Information Detail

Deepest Experience 14 m.
General Remarks Site Near Getape, Bohol, along the north coast. Surrounded by flat mangrove Islands with a quite dense fishermen population. Vittatus Point is in the middle of nowhere, the sea is usually flat and looks like a lake.
Facilities for Divers None, but you can get there via Mactan boats who will charge a considerable premium.
Type of Bottom Big flats with algae production. Good fauna below the ropes for the algae. Especially crabs and cowries. Then a small drop-off that ends in mud at about 18 m.
Marine Life Very wealthy: along the slopes great corals, deeper lots of gorgonians. Below 18 m starts a muddy plane with big craters from crustacea and sparse but super interesting marine life.
Visibility For this place 3 m at the bottom is wealth. Along the slope up to 4-5 m.
Currents None to moderate.
Level Advanced and professional only. The mud on the bottom is very thin and visibility is usually 2 m or less. Light is needed, even during daytime.
