A recent addition to the local dive sites, Oddie's Dingding is an 8m/25foot high wall located off Manila Channel. The wall is covered with 3m/7foot tall gorgonian sea fans and large black coral trees, not seen at other dive spots in the locality. Numerous small holes in the wall are home to eels and blue-triggerfish. Stingrays are common on the sandy patch below the wall and a tremendous variety of soft corals can be studied on the shallower (25m/80') end of the wall. Good Nitrox dive.

Oddie's Dingding or Oddie's Wall is a tall wall found just off the Manila Channel, a heavy population of deep purple to bright orange Gorgonian Sea Fans, Black Corals, Giant Clams and Barrel Sponges surround the area. This creates a colourful and lively living space for Sea Snakes, Moray Eels, Triggerfish, Trumpetfish and Fusiliers. Depth range is from 24meters / 79feet to 45meters / 149feet and is best visited during slack high tide with an experienced guide to help you get through the currents that make this spot a bit difficult to find. The dive site got its name from Dive Boat Captain Udilon 'Oddie' who discovered it.
