Cervera Shoal


Often, a strong drift dive. Monitor your NDL; the average depth is deeper than normal. It's an underwater shoal with a top at 8m, which means you have to make a safety stop in free water and make use of a marker buoy to drift at 5m, 3min for your safety stop. There used to be some dynamite fishing; the reef is, however, slowly recovering. Often this dive site is the second dive in combination with Pamilacan Island.

Marine Life

Many Black-Banded Sea snakes, morays like the white-eyed, starry moray eel, and Nudibranchs. Small reef fish. Some corals and bucket sponges. The top is teeming with sea urchins, be careful with your buoyancy.
