Diving at Malapascua

The diving center is located directly adjacent to the Evolution resort. The dive center has three comfortable dive boats that will take you to all dive sites in the area around Malapascua. They have very good guides when it's time to dive. Malapascua is mainly known for having very good shark diving and if you want to see thresher sharks this is an excellent place to dive. In the deep waters around the Monad Shoal and Kemod Shoal reefs, these sharks live and hunt. If you like macro photography, you are guaranteed to see various nudibranchs, but also frogfish, seahorses and different kinds of squid are common here. 

Diving in Dauin

Dauin just south of the city of Dumaguete on the island of Negros in central Visayas has become, and rightfully so, one of the Philippines' most popular destinations for divers in recent years. Here is the world-famous island of Apo Island and also the whale sharks In Oslob just north of southern Cebu that have made the region famous. However, what is most famous here is the fantastic macro diving. Large areas of sand and mud and interspersed here and there oases with corals and reefs and also some artificial reefs to increase the amount of fish and species richness. Here you can find fish of all imaginable sizes, colors and shapes. Also hammerhead sharks and thresher sharks and reef sharks are sometimes seen with a lot of luck out at Apo Island, but also stingrays, eagle rays, manta rays and other things are sometimes seen there. Turtles are very common out at Apo Island

The invertebrates, cephalopods, nudibranchs, crustaceans and echinoderms dominate together with sponges, sea urchins and various corals or sea urchins. The species richness is fantastic and all dive sites are relatively close so there are rarely long trips except to Apo Island in particular. The diving is varied and different animals thrive more or less well in different places, which is why one day is rarely the same as the next, even if at first glance it may seem like "Help, what am I doing here". But with the help of experienced guides with familiar eyes and knowledge of marine life, you will be able to experience a lot of fun and excitement with a variety of strange animals that you might not even have thought existed. 

Dauin is a real diving paradise and you can go here all year round as the weather is relatively stable and the area is very calm and peaceful. For those of you who want to extend the journey either at the beginning or after Dauin, it is entirely possible and we will help you find good solutions for this.
