Most of the marine life around Anilao falls into the macro category. And what macro there is! The nudibranch come in every shape, colour and size., but common place are rhinopia, hairy frogfish, wonderpus and blue ringed octopus. Indeed, many of the special species you might expect in a location like Lembeh can be seen here! But there are also big schools of jacks and at Manit point the currents pick up. Here reef sharks can be seen in the blue. And if you are especially lucky, a whaleshark will cruise past on the deep water currents. No 2 dives are ever the same!
