8. Mushroom Rock

Located on the northeast side of Samal Island facing Davao Oriental and Davao Gulf. Usually it has very strong currents but with proper timing this area can be very calm during the peak of high tide. Mushroom Rock is an ideal place to scuba dive during the Amihan season, but it is not advisable for novice divers as it averages 30 meters.
The name is derived from its bottom shape, mushroom-like, formed most probably because of the constant erosion caused by strong currents. Initially, the drop off is at 90 degrees to about 30 meters. Then, it gradually descends to the endless bottom of the ocean bed. Unexpected visits of pelagic fish usually adorn the place but a variety of reef fish abound in the area. Several reefs can also be found along the stretch of the reef but timing is very important in order to have a satisfying dive. Dolphins are sometimes seen within this area.
