Mojon house reef is just outside of WellBeach dive resort in Dauin, aproximately 22 km south of Dumaguete City, and just north of Malatapay, it is an ongoing project with some volunteers and sponsors from around the world.
The project was started a couple of years ago, and has grown in both popularity and size, many of the scuba visitors to the resort enjoy doing a night dive here, and capture so many micro and much fish and critters at night on camera.
At WellBeach dive resort they are making the molded reef concrete balustrades, they are then taken via boat to the sanctuary, lowered into the water and anchored into place.
