Mantabuan Island / Boheydulang Island



  • Mantabuan Island is a volcanically formed and mostly submerged island that is paradise for divers who want to see magnificent coral and with unsurpassed visibility. It is also one of the best islands in the area for manta rays, and devil rays can often be found in the blue as well. The Black Coral Garden, this rare and precious coral can be found in just 22 meter of waters. In addition to the black coral, pristine soft coral and large table coral can be found throughout the entirety of the island. Huge coral boulders in the shallow provide shelter to a large number of marine lives, including myriad nudibranches, painted lobster, blue-spotted ribbon rays, and thousand upon thousand of reef fish. Dive sites further to the north and west of the island on the other hand are great to look for turtles, barracudas and a wide variety of smaller critters.
  • Boheydulang Island – The Gaya Island Group consists of 3 steep islands separated by narrow, shallow channels that form the left overs of a long extinct volcano with the rest of the crater being submerged as a shallow reef. The island group used to be home of a Japanese pearl farm and left overs are still visible on one of the islands and at several spots underwater. The shallow rim to the south has some excellent coral growth which, according to well known marine biologist Dr. Natalie Wood, easily outnumbers the species found at the Great Barrier Reef. There is a very large number of small but rare fish that can be found here at depths ranging from 1m to 20m. Larger fish like eagle rays and trevally can be found at the northern side of the island group in the channel towards Mantabuan.
