Dive Information Detail

Deepest Experience 19 m.
General Remarks Site ?Caubian Island? are in fact two Islands at the northeastern Island of a large coral reef that goes west and south parallell to Olango Island. One of the Islands is overpopulated - a sand flat full of nipahuts - and the other one is not inhabited but has nice rocks and soil. The diving is usually not far from the Islands, but far out in the sea along the northern drop-off.
Facilities for Divers The dive boats from Mactan will take you there on demand and with a premium.
Type of Bottom Big sand flats alternated with algae fields or great coral fields in the shallows - between 2 and 14 m deep. Drop-off starts usually at 15 m only, occasionally spectacular.
Marine Life Rich or poor, depends on the very spot.
Visibility Usually good: between 15 and 25 m.
Currents Occasionally big currents, watch the tides.
Level Recreational when accompanied. Nightdives for advanced divers only: open water.
