Diving Philippines, Malapascua/Anda, big and small and wonderful diving. The trip takes place in autumn 2025. Dates 24 October – 07 November. 

Experience two paradises in the Philippines - Just north of Cebu in the Visayas is the paradise island of Malapascua, which is one of the world's most famous places to see the incredibly beautiful thresher shark, and it is almost guaranteed to see them early in the morning. There is also fantastic macro life here, beautiful coral walls and coral gardens and much more to experience. In the evenings you enjoy beautiful sunsets by the beach and relax. A maximum of 14 places are available and the accommodation is in a double room including breakfast. 10 dives are pre-booked and it is possible to book more diving on site.

Anda is located on the eastern part of the very beautiful island of Bohol in the Philippines and is not yet developed for diving and mass tourism has not yet found its way here. The area around Anda is known for its beautiful reefs and wonderful mixed diving. Sometimes larger animals appear here such as whales, dolphins, whale sharks and various types of rays but also lots of other fish and turtles. The macro life is rich and the corals are generally in good condition with different types of diving in coral gardens, sandy bottoms and wall dives. The diving takes place from a traditional Filipino bangka boat and is simple. Tank and weights are included and we have booked 10 dives in advance. More diving can of course be booked on site. A diving-free day does not have to be spent on the beach, but there is the opportunity to take a trip out into the jungle and see ghost animals and why not jump down and swim in a waterfall and cool off in the wild. 

Tips and ideas about travel and socializing - Our ambassador Per will be on the trip and he will be able to tell you and give tips and ideas about many different and exciting diving destinations you might want to visit in the future. With his in-depth knowledge of seasons, marine life and first-hand information not only about diving and travel but also marine life and what can happen when traveling, you can learn a lot and get ideas and knowledge about where you want to go on your next dive trip.

Your accommodation – I Malapascua is the accommodation simple but functional and with a lovely location directly on the beach. In the evenings, enjoy the gentle breeze and the view out to sea from the beach bar or your terrace. Breakfast is included and we buy other meals on site. IN The spirit of Bohol is the accommodation also simple but comfortable and this includes half board. The resort is located directly on the beach and here there is a restaurant and bar or choose the view terrace with a magical view out over the Bohol Sea.
