Pescador Island description

Pescador Island basic informations

Pescador Island is mentioned as one dive spot but you can dive here at least four times; it’s a truly great dive site. The dives start mostly in the south where the boat is sheltered if there is an Amihan wind.

Dive site briefing

Starting from here you can go two ways depending on the current. The slope in the south is 12m deep and then it becomes a straight drop off to the depth of 33m and then starts sloping down. The walls all around the island go very deep; please watch your buoyancy, depth gauge and no decompression limit.

Half way into the dive on the south-east side is a deep rocky slope; here you can see a school of Jacks, the Big Eye Trevally (Caranx sexfasciatus). At the north-east of the island at 7m is a platform with a great coral garden with an aquarium of fish; great for night diving. Spend most of the dive-time in this area, look in the corals for special things like shrimps, Nudibranchs etc. Going to the west side you will see at 25m the cathedral. Entering the cathedral and looking up into the light on a bright sunny day will give you a wonderful lighting effect just like the glowing light beams in a an ancient cathedral There are two smaller openings into the cathedral which you can dive through and ascend up to 9m.
