Tubbataha Reef – North Islet, Southeast Corner
The southeast corner of Tubbataha Reef North Islet is a gentle slope with plenty of mixed corals reaching up to 40 feet and drops into a deep wall. It has a huge reef top with leopard fish, sea cucumbers, giant clams, octopus, and Bohadschia sea cucumbers.
The site is also rewarded for sightings of star pufferfish with attendant remoras and guitar sharks.
Over the wall is a cave where you will see resting marine species such as Tawny nurse sharks, spiny lobsters, sweetlips, snappers, fusiliers, Moorish idols, surgeonfish, butterfly, angelfish, groupers, white tip reef sharks, black tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, eagle rays, manta rays and turtles. These make the site very ideal for macro underwater photography.
