San Miguel is located on the northern part of the main Ticao Island, about 45 minutes by boat away from Manta Bowl. Several dive sites are found around the island and each dive site is very different.
A dive site found at the corner of a pristine white sand beach. Upon entering the water you are enveloped by a variety of soft coral creating a beautiful pathway which is reminiscent of a flower garden. Much of San Miguel Island is made of limestone and at Tres Grace, you get to admire limestone formations under the sea and have the chance to go through several swim throughs and mini caves.
A steep slope facing the east. Here you find encrusted corals, sponges, and soft coral. Hidden along the wall are creatures like moray eels, scorpion fish and stone fish.
Found at the tip of San Miguel Island where currents meet. Expect moderate to strong currents and find sharks and rays surfing along. Enjoy various views of the ocean and the surface as you move through many ledges and discover the marine life that dwells at the different depths.
This is another site at the tip of San Miguel Island where you have rushing currents. This dive site is also frequented by sharks, manta rays, and eagle rays. However, as compared to Parola, the point has caves which divers can peek into. Lion fish, banded boxer shrimps, lobsters and groupers have made the cave their home.
Lapus Lapus West
A gradual slope with soft coral draping the rocks. Hidden in between the rock and the coral, you are likely to find squid and cuttlefish eggs. If the time is right, see the squid and cuttlefish swimming in their safe abode oblivious to the world outside the shell of the egg. Find many colourful critters like nudibranches and Spanish dancers.
Lapus Lapus East
As compared to its western twin, Lapus Lapus East has a steep slope and goes down to an average depth of 20 meters. The bigger boys of the sea hang out here. Facing away from the wall, catch a glimpse of pelagics like Tuna and Mackerel. Lapus Lapus East has its share of critters like nudibranches and the more camouflaged creatures of the sea like the frogfish.
