The island is recognized as a banded sea krait breeding ground. Overhangs and small caves give hiding places to white tip reef sharks. The amount and different colors of soft corals is truly amazing. Cuttlefish, seahorses, big mouth mackerel, nudibranchs and many other species can be seen on every dive. The tunnel through the island is one of the highlights at Gato Island. Surely 3 different dives can be made here. Within 45 min by boat we can reach Gato Island. Gato is famous for its sea snakes and big whitetip reef sharks, which are resting in small caves underneath some rocks. A very beautiful dive is the tunnel, where you start from the north east and exit at the west side of Gato Island, especially if one or two white tip reef sharks are waiting you at the exit. It’s one of the best locations in the Visayas sea with an unbelievable variety of underwater life. Stunning rock formations, swim throughs and a lot more awaits you at this top dive site.
