Less than an hour away by boat from Sabang, Puerto Galera, Verde Island provides one of the most spectacular wall dives in the Philippines. Plummeting down in excess of 100m (328ft) in some places, this site has something to offer divers of all skill levels. A multitude of plate and staghorn corals can be found in the shallower water, while deeper down the wall, large soft corals, basket sponges and some very impressive gorgonian sea fans drape across the rocky surface. The nutrient-rich waters attract swarms of anthias, surgeonfish, trumpetfish and butterflyfish, while shoals of bigeye trevally, rainbow runners, tuna and Spanish mackerel can be seen out in the blue just off the wall. The sheer grandeur, colour and diversity of life makes it a must-see for all divers.
