Mainit Point

MAINIT POINT is another favorite dive site of mine. It is located at the southernmost point of Calumpang Peninsula, known also as Cazador Point. Average depth is 50 feet and maximum depth is 100 feet. Before I was into underwater photography this was the best dive site for me. Here, rocks break the surface and boulders form miniature drop-offs from 5-30 meters. Marine life is plentiful and varied from whitetip sharks to barracudas, turtles and eagle rays. Nudibranchs, mantis shrimps, moray and ribbon eels can also be sighted. Corals are in good condition and the crinoids are very colorful. This site is for experienced divers due to the strong currents.
