You start diving the Manila Channel in shallow water around 5m/15ft on a beautiful reef, which is alive with hard and soft corals and hundreds of small tropical fish. Anthias, Butterfly fish, Damsels, Parrot fish and many more abound. The reef slopes off to a sandy bottom and as you follow the contours of the reef on a flood tide the clear water from the Verde Passage helps you drift into the channel as you drop off to around 18m/60ft moving past a small wall covered with sea fans and whip corals. Surgeon fish, Tuna, Snapper and sweet lips are common to this area. After the wall the contour begins to slope back up to shallow water. Large Basket Sponges and Green Tree Corals cover the reef. Best to dive on flood or slack high tide.
