Puerto Galera - Sabang Wreck description

Puerto Galera - Sabang Wreck basic informations

Descending down a mooring line, you are commonly faced by a school of batfish that are usually fed by divers who visit the site. On the sandy bottom lies the dilapidated wooden hull of a Vietnamese fishing boat, which has been almost completely colonized by marine life.

Featured dive site briefing

If fish feeding, you will be swarmed by damselfish, with bigger fish, such as batfish and surgeonfish sometimes moving in for a feed. Care must be taken when diving close to wreck due to the numerous scorpionfish, which reside there. In and around the wreck big white-eyed and snowflake moray eels can be found. With a “good trained eye”, two- and three-spot flounder can be seen on the sandy bottom, frogfish and mantis shrimp can be spotted in the small coral reefs patches. Just a short swim (about 40m/132ft) west of the wooden wreck is the steel hull of a 12m/ 40ft sailboat that was deliberately sunk by divers from Capt’n Greggs Dive Shop to create a new artificial reef. It has not yet been colonized much by any encrusting coral species, but impressive fish population reside around it. Bathfish, yellowfin surgeonfish, cleaner wrasse and pipefish only to the name of a few of the numerous species found at this sites. Both wrecks are fantastic to dive at night, resembling small cities, crawling with crabs, shrimps and prawns. Lionfish and scorpionfish come out to feed, and stargazers look up at you with a smile from the sandy seabed. Small schools of baby squid are sometimes attracted to the beams of divers’ lights. Best diving is during slack tide.
