ABOUT COCONUT POINT

Edit

The Apo Island of Philippines is among the favourite dive destinations in the world. With 11 world-class, distinct dive sites situated around it, the island is mostly frequented by advanced divers due to the strong up and down currents in the surrounding waters. Coconut Point is one of these exquisite dive sites, situated towards the north-western part of the island. Well known for the variety of marine life found in the area, it caters to drift diving and reef diving only. Amongst the plethora of species found here, it is famous for the barracudas, angel fish, green and hawksbill turtles and bigeye jacks, spanish mackrels or tunas.

With strong currents due to the effects of the North East winds, Coconut Point is best visited from November to May when the tides bring in about many species of large fish. It is also during this time that the water temperature is as low as 22 or 23 degree Celsius which proves to be favourable for the marine life. The average depth is 20 meters while the maximum depth can be up to 40 meters or more with an excellent visibility ranging from 10 meters to 30 meters. The dive site has some gorgeous corals like those of Sarcophython and Dendrophylia and is widely popular for the frequent sightings of the reef sharks. Other soft corals, unicorn fish and lion fish are pretty common too.

The dive site is accessible by a short boat ride from the mainland and liveaboards aren’t available here as of yet. The dive begins at a sloping reef leading to a wall surrounded by snappers, turtles, sea snakes and other species. Trevallys as long as 1.5 meters can be spotted here while mackerels, tuna fish, parrot fish, sweet lips, trigger fish and eagle rays can also be seen.
