Puerto Galera - Boulders

 Dive Sites / 41 views

At the surface you face a vertical stone wall and a few large boulders breaking the surface. rolling back into the water between them, you find some of the most interesting terrain around this coast. The boulders seem to have tumbled down from the cliff, falling close together and forming swim-troughs that create a winding path down to the level base of the site.

There are gorgonians of many colors, basket sponges and soft tree corals here. Blue fingered starfish, sea cucumbers, stonefish, scorpion fish, lionfish, spotted snapper and striped sweetlips are all abundant here, and in the caves small lobster and prawns can be found. It is best to dive this site on flood tide when there is no current as the area has a lot of silt sediment.
