Rico's Wall


Deep drop-off wall in the south/west side of Balicasag Island.  The land orientation is the big rock marked with the stick in front of the beach in low water.

Marine Life

Soft and hard corals, small caverns, and crevices. Often, a school of “Jacks” in the Big Eye trevally swim in circles like a tornado. Midnight Snappers are swimming among sweetlip fishes.

Dive Direction

Start the dive with the wall on the left going south or the right shoulder going north.
