SS Panay

A commissioned American ammunitions ship carrying supplies to the Philippine guerrillas, the SS Panay played a crucial role in the war against the Japanese Imperial Forces. In March 1942 it was spotted and torpedoed by two Japanese planes and laid to rest on the bottom of Campomanes Bay. The approx. 90 meters long warship lies perfectly upright in 33 - 41 meters depth and still has hundreds of gas masks on board.


You will dive right under an old dock through a breathtaking steel landscape scattered with gigantic, colourfully overgrown tires as well as an enormous, chained anchor. Mad Max is the home of pipefish, lobsters, stonefish, morays and lionfish in hundreds. An extraordinary dive site in 5 - 28 meters depth.

Wollux Heaven

This dive starts with a 14-meter-free-dive down along a rope, past a reef-top full of fishes, corals and lots of little white sand spots going down to 37 meters. At 18 meters, Gorgonians and Whip-corals overgrow beautifully a giant “rock finger” which gives shelter to a big variety of fishes. Further along the reef edge is another big rock forming some kind of canyon through which one can dive to spot frogfishes and stonefishes.
