Discovery Scuba Diving is proceed at Sibuan Island.
Sibuan is a great place for conducting Open Water Courses at, as the calm conditions and sandy bottoms make it ideal for beginning divers. But don’t think Sibuan is only for new divers, this is a macro divers paradise and truly one of our favorite islands. Sandy bottoms mixed with rubble as well as sloping reefs provide a playground for divers to hunt within. Pygmy seahorses are a virtual guarantee, found in 30 meters of water on various sides of the islands. This is one of the best islands in the area for frogfish, as numerous ones make Sibuan their residence. Another highlight is the mandarin fish, which live in the black urchins that line the shallows and are on every macro diver’s wish list. Nudibranchs are found by the dozen, as are crocodile fish, lion fish, and scorpion fish. Another treat is the hammerhead nudibranchs, black and royal blue in color, found in the shallows of Mandarin Bay. Stingrays, cuttlefish, turtles, and the incredibly colourful mandarinfish are prominent in its waters while there is a good variety of smaller critters like pygmy seahorses playing hide and seek among its pristine corals.
With a combination of shallow plateaus and steep slopes, the island is a regular stop over during open water diver courses and experienced diver programs.
