Crocodile Island is said to be one of the best dives in the region as there is a lot to explore and there is a large amount of marine life. This dive site is close to Boracay Island and is suitable for most divers. From further away, the uninhabited small island, takes on the shape of a crocodile head giving the island and the dive site their names. The dive depth ranges from 5 meters, which is the top of a coral wall and is filled with many different types of marine life. The wall then goes down to around 20 meters and equally has a huge variety and quantity of marine life.

The large wall has many caves and canyons that can be explored and these are filled with a lot of marine life. Currents can be strong and so divers should plan to dive during slack tide when they are calmer.

Divers can find large Gorgonian fan corals on the wall, and so macro divers can investigate to see if they can spot nudibranchs and other smaller marine species. Divers should be able to spot sea snakes, cuttle fish, moral eels, scorpion fish, lionfish, as well as large fish such as wrasses, groupers, sweetlips, and snappers.

The coral slope also has many small crabs, shrimps, sponges, and feather stars as well. The visibility is usually very good and the abundance of fish and the wall make for great macro photography.
