North Rock: A Great Dive Site for Pelagic

North Rock is the most  Northern island of the group of Tres Marias, a marine protected area. Located near Miniloc at the center of Bacuit Bay, his location makes it a great dive site for pelagic sight. It is an ideal stop over for deep-sea fish that want to get checked by the resident cleaner wrasses. That’s why we are always excited to go there! You never know what can stop by!

North Rock: Different topography

North Rock has an amazing variety of topography and different diving environments. On one side, you can find a vast flat reef with huge table corals, massive corals and stag horns. This is where we can encounter black tip shark!
Toward the channel located on the Southern part of the island, there is a really nice swim through. It is composed by huge rocks. There is a cleaning station on the top of a beautiful branching cup coral frequently visited by golden jacks and big pompano fish.
