COGON | MAX DEPTH 30M
Cogon is named after the Filipino ‘cogon’ grass that lines the shore in front of the dive site. This dive site is known for its sometime fierce currents and is therefore only recommended for advanced divers with drift diving experience. The dive site starts on a sandy slope, with an impressive array of corals, look out for the family of bump head parrot fish that sometime frequent this area. As the dive site progresses the topography changes to an impressive wall dive. The current ensures there is a variety of marine life in evidence and keep an eye open in the blue for the huge schools of big eye trevallies.

MAMSA | MAX DEPTH 30M
Mamsa is the local word for ‘Jacks’ and often there is a large school of Jacks to be seen at this dive site. Again prone to strong current, this is also a drift dive for the more experienced diver. Starting on a steep slope the topography is quite unique as it turns into a host of underwater boulders which later joins a steep wall covered in soft corals. Drift along and keep your eyes open for the occasional hawksbill turtle.

KAN URAN | MAX DEPTH 30M+
Kan Uran is situated on a point where two currents meet. The temperature change can usually be felt as the currents mix and occasionally you can feel the turbulent water. The dive site is a wall dive with many overhangs and crevices which ends on a steep slope at the start of the marine sanctuary. A dive site that is suitable for most levels assuming the current is not so strong.
