This is a steep wall rated as an easy dive. At a depth of only 8 meters this Bohol diving spot shows off fascinating nudi branches, wrasse, Groupers. At 25 meters it hits rock bottom where various remarkable eels, like sand and garden eels, flourish from the slope to the sandy sea floor. It is ideal for night diving.
Why is it called Garden Eels? First, there are plenty of garden eels around, especially on the sea floor. Garden eels are a species of the eel clan. Second, as we descend this amazing dive site we encounter a gorgeous coral garden atop a huge coral wall shaped like a bow. Thus, the apt name Garden Eels. And there is more to the site than mere garden eels.
It is located about 100 meters from the beach of Alona on Panglao Island in Bohol—or something like 3 minutes by motored banca—is a favored dive site called Garden Eels. It’s an easy site to snorkel around in and the sights are fantastic, even in shallow water.
