Sinandigan wall drops off from five to about forty meters. It is home to a huge range of invertebrates and so is popular with both naturalists and photographers. Dives here often turn into Nudibranch hunts. Nudi (naked), branchs (lungs) are brightly colored sea slugs that eat sponges. Many fish avoid eating sponges because of the powerful chemicals in their cells. The nudibranchs can also store these chemicals in their own bodies making them bad to eat. Hence the bright color is a simple warning sign 'I taste bad'.
Follow the slope down at the bottom of Sinandigan Wall to a giant rock at 45m/150ft, healthy with marine life, such as gorgonians and sea whips. Sweet-lips and snapper are common, and whitetip reef sharks and turtle are sometimes seen here, therefore named Turtle Rock. This site is best dived on the flood tide.
