The Talima Dive Site in Olango

At Olango, there is a dive site called Talima.

Diving at Talima the marine sanctuary The location of the Talima diving site is at 4.5 kilometers (2 nautical miles) heading to the 128° from our Scotty's Dive Center in Mactan, which puts the dive site at only 5 to 10 minutes by boat.

Talima is made of a vast plateau starting around 5 meters (15 feet) which go on a slight slope until 18 meters (60 feet). At 18 meters (60 feet), you can see the top of the wall which goes down to 45 and 50 meters (145 to 165 feet) in some parts of the wall.

The plateau of Talima is made out of a sandy seabed with scattered soft and hard corals where eels and morays are living, as well as the damsel and all the coral reef animals which are shoaling around these beautiful coral formations.
This plateau is perfect for the beginner open water divers and the underwater photographers.

The wall itself is covered with soft and hard corals, big sea fans and beautiful gorgonians. It is the house of groupers, snappers, school of sweetlips, as well other natural marine life inhabiting a healthy wall.

As a well-maintained diving sanctuary, Talima has a great underwater biodiversity with two distinctive parts to dive in.

The Talima dive site is well-suited for all types of scuba divers, where beginners and nonexperienced divers can dive on the plateau between 5 meters (15 feet) down to 18 meters (60 feet) in a middle of an exceptional aquatic fauna, and the residual wooden wreck at the edge of the wall.

The more experienced divers will go down along the superb wall covered with gorgonians and sea fans, where they will dive with bigger fishes like the school of Jacks, Snappers, and Groupers as well as the blue triggerfish, angelfish and much more.
