Immediately north of Paliton Staghorn, this impressive dive site is hailed as one of the best dive sites on Siquijor. At the south end of this dive site it’s a steep wall going directly from five to forty-five meters, at which points it starts to slope and flatten out. You’ll need to keep an eye on your time and depth, as the visibility is usually excellent and as on many walls it’s easy to slip below your intended depth. If you follow along the wall to the north, you’ll notice it gradually turns into more of a sandy slope, certainly still steep but not really a wall anymore. The sandy slope is good for spotting mantis shrimps (odontodactylus scyllarus) as well as various nudibranchs.
This divesite is a direct continuation of the Paliton Wall dive site to the south of it. As the Paliton wall dissolves into a sandy slope, you enter the Paliton Staghorn. The highlight for many divers is the blue ribbon eels found frequently in this area. Additionally, as the name of the dive site implies, there are two large sections with nice staghorn corals (Acropora formosa) as well as some barrel sponges. The coral section host a wealth of reef fish and you can expect to see snappers as well as snubnose drummers. Although it’s possibly to dive a bit deeper than 30 meters by following the sandy slope down as it starts to flatten out, there isn’t much to see. The action is really between ten and twenty meters. This is also an easy dive site for novices and it offers good snorkeling opportunities to boot.
