We saw a total of five Ghost pipefish! Puerto Galera’s diving Log in Secret Reef on February, 2015


I wore a 3mm and 5mm full suit and came to dive as well as the Europeans and Americans. “Samui!” at a dive shop in the Philippines is understood. The Japanese word “Samui” means “it’s cold”.

Diving Point:Secret Reef
Water temperature:23 – 25°C
Flow:A little to the north toward the outside of the bay
Maximum depth:16.5m

Dive location

Secret Reef

This point is located in the inner bay on the side of Muelle Harbor and the clarity is about 10m. I love lazing around in the sandy waters of Puerto Galera’s inner bay. We saw a total of 5 black and white pipefish! Here are some of the photos I took during this fun dive.


Black ghost pipefish

We saw a total of 4 fish that day!

White ghost pipefish

Oooh, too bad the picture. I was also able to see the white one.

A juvenile common Egg Cowry

Underneath the mantle, there are spiny, white shells. It’s like they’re on top of a mushroom and it’s so cute!

Dragonfish sea moth

Whip coral goby

Longfin snake-eel

Yellow Zebra turkeyfish

Yellow is so cute 🙂

We also saw a baby sapphire goby and more! When the clarity is not very good in Puerto Galera, macro diving is recommended.
