Adrians Cove is situated on the east side of Limasawa. It is a marine sanctury Limasawa is also famous for Ferdinand Magellan, and the first Catholic mass in the Philippines. It is a outstanding wall dive dropping down to about 40 metres. Walls are covered with soft corals, gorgonian fans and green tree corals. This site is quite unusual it has deep gorges and a number of caves. Adrians cove normally has plenty of nudibranchs, pacific oysters and occasional hammerhead and humped head wrasses.
The view around the island is spectacular normally do 2 dives on Limasawa giving you breath taking views while doing your dive interval.
This dive is one of the best in the bay and my favourite. I have been diving it for about 6 years. It has every thing. Walls, reefs, softs and hard corals, big pelagics, fans, pygmy seahores, devil rays, eagle rays, midnight snappers, sweetlips, frog fish, spotted potato cod, dwarf snapper and plenty more.
The whole dive site is also a marine protected area which keeps the spear fisherman out. Maximum depth is around 45 metres. Strong currents sometimes Viz is normally around 25 metres.
