The south-west of the Himuquitan island (which is locally called Hinukilan island) as a gorgeous "inverted" wall, going down to 50 meters (165 feet), with many crevices above and tiny caverns on the wall itself.

The Cuatro islas are situated at 73 kilometers (40 nautical miles) heading to the 74° from our Scotty's dive center headquarters in Mactan.

Diving at the Cuatro islas.

Diving at the Cuatro islas The first impressions are the huge visibility and the ray of light which are glowing on the wall of the south west diving site.
The inverted wall is the must to see (inverted because instead of going down straight or like a slope, it goes down but under the top, means in a negative way).
It's a fantastic experience to dive along a wall where the top is straight up above you like an umbrella, with some whole in it and where the rays of the sun give a surreal effect to the surrounding underwater environment.

The variety of the soft and hard corals is a must to see.
Most of the 4 islands are surrounded with a high plateau as low as 2 to 3 meters (6 to 10 feet) before the drop off of the wall, which make the safety stop very safe and well protected at the end of the dive.

Our thoughts about diving and snorkeling at Cuatro islas.

It's a must to do experience as a diver and for the all family as an island excursion or even just as an island tour.

So if you are a diver, but your children don't dive (yet), they will also enjoy this fantastic journey swimming, snorkeling, jumping and diving from our luxurious bangka or playing on the beach of these 4 islands.

In all case, do not forget your underwater camera as there is a lot of things to photography at Cuatro islas.
On the way to go and back, you might be able to see dolphins and whales, but for sure you will see a lot of flying fishes during the safari.
