Located close to Puerto Galera’s main harbor, Muelle Pier, Giant Clams is renowned for its muck diving. Here you can find Hairy Frogfish, many different species of Nudibranch, Mimic Octopus and Wonderpus and Flamboyant Cuttlefish if you are lucky.
The site starts shallow at 6m, where you can find the Giant Clams, some up to 1.5m wide, calmly filter-feeding the nutrient-rich waters. You then swim deeper and end up in the muck, a sandy grassy bottom, where many of nature’s oddities that have mastered camouflage reside.
The Giant Clams (about 25) sit in about 5m of water and the nearby reef slopes down to a sandy area.
A couple of 2m high basket sponges are one of the highlights of this dive. Max depth 15m.
Our staff is experts at finding the smallest creatures here hiding in the sand. Bobtail squid are here, only 1 cm long, yet still changing color and shape like its bigger relatives.
