Off the point of Palancar are several dive sites to be found. You can dive Palancar Gardens or Palancar Shallows, Palancar Horseshoe, Palancar Caves or Palancar Deep.

Palancar Gardens or Palancar Shallows is a great 2nd dive after diving Palancar Caves. It is a beautiful dive with plenty of color and many nice caverns. Absolutely magnificent dive, gentle currents, lush plant & marine life and you never run out of reef. It is perfect for beginners with scattered coral and sponges on sand bottom. There are large caverns with crabs and lobsters within.

Palancar Horseshoe is formed from a natural horseshoe packed with series of giant coral heads that start at 32 meter and come within 6 meter of the surface. If you dove this site before 1996 you may have known that this was the former home of the Christ statue which now stands in the Chankanaab Park. Towers of brain, star and sheet coral heads protrude within 6 meter of the surface. Massive corals tower overhead as you explore the unique "horseshoe" shaped structure of the reef.

Palancar Caves is yet another beautiful sight between 18 to 27 meter with large caves, tunnels and caverns that are alive with abundant marine life such as grouper and sea turtles. There are many passages going through the coral formations, which rest on the sandy bottom; peaks are found at 10 to 12 meter deep then slopes into the abyss. Excellent tunnels, caves and swim-throughs at this popular deep dive.
