The Punta Bunga diving spot in Boracay is for all types of SCUBA divers.
Located beside the Yapak diving site and the Balinghai wall, Punta Bunga is another easily accessible diving spot from the shores of our Scotty's dive center in Boracay.
Punta Bunga is recommended for beginners and experienced scuba divers as it is an easy dive on a sloped wall with many large flat plateau cutting the wall as you are going down.
The visibility at Punta Bunga is usually good to very good and might, sometimes, have a mild current.
So with its calm waters, underwater photographers can enjoy the coral formations and all the critters living around.
Punta Bunga is filled with cubbyholes where you will see eels, triggerfish and groupers.
Lionfish and sea snakes are also sighted in the area. Schools of butterfly fish and angelfish can also be seen, as well as stingrays lurking below the corals.
With all this biodiversity, big predators are attracted and you can often spot some reef sharks like the white tip sharks and some grey reef sharks.
Diving at the Punta Bunga dive spot.
The most interesting part of Punta Bunga stretches from 10 meters (33 feet) deep to 35 meters (120 feet).
It's an underwater paradise for macro photography, as well as for the underwater scenery photography. The videographer will also find their needs fulfilled because there is always something moving around, like the reef fishes shoaling on the corals and sea fans.
Sea fans, gorgonians, sponges, soft and hard corals are covering the seabed where the underwater critters are living, such as nudibranchs, pipefish, porcelain crabs, mantis shrimps and so on.
Schools of jacks, angelfish, snappers and barracudas are also sighted at the Punta Bunga dive site, and often, sea turtles are swimming around too.
Our thoughts about diving at the Punta Bunga dive site.
From the shore or from a boat (to go directly at the deeper part), the Punta Bunga diving site is suited for all types and levels of divers.
An impressive coral diversity is covering the seabed where a lot of critters are using it as a habitat to hide from the bigger predators, making Punta Bunga a haven for the underwater photographers.
Overall, from a gorgeous and colorful seabed to the bigger fishes waiting to eat the smaller hiding in the reef, Punta Bunga has a great underwater biodiversity.
We never say it enough: Our recommendation is to bring your underwater camera to capture the tropical underwater life in the Philippines which is quite unique. And the Punta Bunga dive site is one of a kind if you go to dive in Boracay during your vacations.
