Panagsama Beach description

Panagsama Beach basic informations

The dive starts with a steep slope going down to 40m where there is a wall. Stay at 15m and come slowly up to 10m; there are some caves along the wall. This a great dive site for night diving as entries and exits are straight from the beach.

Dive site briefing

It is here that you will see thousands of sardines being hunted by Tunas and Jacks. On the sandy platform right in front of the Seaquest Dive Shop you can see the special Twin Spot Goby (Signigobius biocellatus) or the poisonous Scorpionfish Demon Stinger (Inimicus didactylus). In the shallows are many Sergeant Majors, Moorish Idols, small Parrotfish, Pufferfish and Turtle. Coral growth is decent with some Bucket sponges, wire corals and the Delicate Sea Whip (Junceela fragilis). During a night dive you will see for sure some Basket Stars (Astobao nuda).
