Annual Apo Reef Dive Trip
We think jumping off from Sabang, Puerto Galera, riding an outrigger to Apo Reef for a few hours, sleeping on a boat or pitching a tent is cool!
Sea Rider Dive Center organizes "budget friendly" trips yearly. Let us know if you're interested to join our trip for April 2015.
Cost and final date of the trip will be posted once the roster is complete. As of November 2014, 8 people have signed up.
Apo Reef Information
A 340 meter-wide dual-lagoon system divided by a narrow channel that runs west to east.
Position: South China Sea, west of Mindoro Island
Depth: 2 to more than 40 meters (7 to more than 130 feet)
Marine life and Features:
This is an area where more than 380 species of fish are known to reside, an excellent area to view several species of large pelagics.
Among the species of fish that can be found in the Apo Reef area are various sharks (including whitetip, blacktip, hammerhead and whale sharks), stingrays, mantas, jacks and snappers, tuna, wahoos, Spanish mackerel, Napoleon wrasses, surgeons, bumphead parrotfish, triggerfish, lionfish, pufferfish, soldierfish, and many others.
Researchers have identified almost 500 different species of corals in the area. There are three wrecks in the area — an old steamer in shallow water at the northern end, and two steel-hulled fishing boats, one in 10m on the southwest portion of the southern reef, the other on the west side of the same reef.
