Video of Diving Apo Reef
Mindoro Strait – Philippines
Our video of the week is from a live-abroad trip going out for diving Apo Reef. It is located in the middle of the ocean between the Island of Mindoro and Coron. It takes a few hours to get there from both location. Several dive-operations in Puerto Galera offer seasonal live-abroad trips to this natural wonder. The amount of marine life one finds on Apo Reef is about as good as it gets in the Philippines and therefore in the world. This great video of diving Apo Reef can give you only an idea about the world which will await you under water. Philippine Diver wants to thank IndoWild for taking the time to put this beautiful Video of diving Apo Reef together.
Diving at Apo Reef
The marine sanctuary of Apo Reef is a 34 Kilometer Reef with stunning drop-offs and wonderful coral gardens. It is divided by a channel which runs from the east to the west. Whether you go there via live-abroad for a few days from Puerto Galera or Coron or decide to take the 3-hour Bangka-ride when staying on Pandan Island for your dive Holiday, you should not miss out on that opportunity if there is any option to visit the Apo Reef Marine Park.
The northern part of the reef is mainly shallow and barley goes below 10 meter and even scratches the surface at low-tide. The southern part of Apo Reef is a bit deeper and goes down to 30 meters. The picturesque landscape and the clear waters make this stunning dive spot to an all-time favorite for diving in the Philippines. Most photographers have problems to decide if they go for Macro or wide angle. Whatever your decision is, you certainly want to go Enriched Air/Nitrox to spend some more time in this wonderful underwater world of Apo Reef.
