SCUBA diving at the Laurel island is for all levels of divers.
Laurel island is located just beside Crocodile island and is at 9 km (5 nautical miles) from our Scotty's Dive Center in Boracay. It takes less than 30 minutes to go on the first diving site.
Laurel island is divided into two dive sites: the Laurel island itself and the Laurel tunnel.
The two diving sites are quite close to each other and can also be a perfect island tour destination for all the family, if they are not divers.
The current may be moderate to strong, but it is usually a fun and easy dive for all divers of all levels, as well as for the snorkelers during an island excursion.
During a dive at the Laurel island dive site, you will see many soft and hard corals, a lot of different species of nudibranchs with many different colors are also living in the area.
There are also few small caves and caverns to explore. The Laurel tunnel dive site is a tunnel-like site where you can dive through. The tunnel of Laurel is abundant with barrel sponges and several species of flora. At the entrance (and exit), many schools of colorful fishes are shoaling around.
Diving at the Laurel island dive site.
Laurel island is a very good place for underwater photography, especially macro photography with all the critters living around.
The seabed is covered with colorful soft and hard corals where the usual tropical fishes are shoaling all around.
The cavern is a large swim through where groupers and other "big" fishes have established their home.
Overall, it's a shallow dive and the best and the most interesting part, which will allow you to stay around an hour underwater.
Other than the colorful corals, you will see many species of reef fishes like the damsel shoaling around, anemone and its clown fish, nudibranchs, pipefish, blue starfish, crabs and even sea snakes.
