The Hinugtan diving site is a full day dive safari.
The Hinugtan diving place is situated at 13 kilometers (7 nautical miles) heading to the 194° from our Scotty's dive center in Boracay.
Hinugtan is very well known for its huge schools of different species of fish, and to have an amazing wall. But one of the strong side of Hinugtan, it's the underwater biodiversity you will encounter.
The wall of the Hinugtan dive site is cover by gorgonians, sea fans, soft and hard corals where ones are more colorful than the others. In other words, diving at Hinugtan is an underwater colorful experience.
What you will see at Hinugtan, you won't see it around Boracay! Sadly, that's a fact, this is due to the water pollution around Boracay, where in Hinugtan the fauna and the underwater flora are literally exploding in number and diversity in its clear waters.
