Ambiance Big Fishes Deep
Black forest is the main attraction of Balicasag island. it is a steep sandy slope that reaches to a depth of over 40 meters. Starting in deeper waters, you'll find forests of black corals, and can find large groupers, Napoleon Wrasse, barracuda, tuna, snappers, and batfish. Going up, the black corals will end at about 30 meters, and in the shallower waters you will see a large variety of fish, large schools of silver jacks / surgeon fish, and turtles. Also plenty of sea stars, sea cucumbers, and colourful crinoids.
The site is normally calm, but with a strong current, which makes this a fast drift dive. When the current is fierce, it can get rough.
