Apo Reef

Thanks to the efforts of the Philippine government, Apo Island has been protected by the state for about 20 years, has been declared a national park and is steadily gaining in popularity.

The closest and therefore ideal starting point for this excursion is the town of Sablayan with the beach resort Gustav's Place.

Our own boat, a typical local outrigger boat (Bangka), drives around 40 kilometres out into the South China Sea several times a week in 2 hours.

Apo Island is an island amid a 40,000-hectare area, where countless reef structures almost reach the surface of the ocean. The abundance of fish around the atoll is unique and overwhelming!
Extremely spectacular, vertically sloping reef edges - and in addition the warm, turquoise and crystal-clear waters allow unclouded depths of more than 30 meters.

During this dive you will experience a magical, fantastic world under water with the most colourful corals and deep-sea animals of all types and sizes. From the smallest coral fish to the big shark, cuttlefish, octopus, seahorses, moray eels, mantas, starfish and hedgehogs, crabs, turtles, clams and many other organisms accompany you on your underwater safari.
