Black Forest

There are many coral heads in the shallow part and a forest of Black coral at 35-45m. Normally, the dive starts against the current and stays low over the sandy bottom, and after, the current will change, so you can drift dive the second part. This is the best dive site in the Bohol Triangle.

Marine Life
