Umbrella is only a 10-minute boat ride North from our resort, and it is one of the best macro dives you can do in Moalboal area. Once you submerge, a shallow sloping reef guides you from one coral bommie to another (and to another) and then to the little aeroplane wreck that lays at approximately 20-22m of depth.
Apart from the strange sight of seeing a small aeroplane under water, this dive site is full of surprises. With your nose in the sand, this is the ideal place for underwater photographers to get a good shot of a variety of macro marine life, including Pegasus Seamoth, Robust Ghost Pipefish, Ribbon Eels, Octopus, Peacock Mantis Shrimp, Harlequin Crabs and Spiny Devil Scorpionfish and if you have a really good eye, Stonefish.
As soon as you go past the aeroplane wreck, the sloping reef drops off into a wall full of more treasures! In the feather stars, you can look out for Ornate Ghost Pipefish and Crinoid Lobsters and shrimps.
