Canyons is one of the most popular dive sites in Puerto Galera, but only recommended for advanced divers due to the 32m depth and strong currents.
Canyons is a large area consisting of 3 canyons that bottom out a maximum depth of approximately 32m. The strong currents attract large shoals of tuna, barracuda, jackfish etc.
A great dive if you are qualified!

Thanks to Scandi Divers Resort manager and dive instructor Terry O’Dowd for this great footage of one of our divers filming this very beautiful, and very relaxed Lionfish.

Thanks to our resort manager / dive instructor Terry O’Dowd for catching this video of a Sea Snake eating a Garden Eel. Quite amazing how quickly it is able to devour the eel!
