Cebu is a year round diving destination and is the prefect vacation base for diving adventures. The area has an incredible range of underwater experiences to offer; from wreck diving to drift diving on stunning reefs and provides the opportunity for some great photos of small critters to sightings of large pelagics.
Principally though guests are drawn by the clear warm waters and startling array of marine life, the great value diving provided by highly professional and acclaimed Dive Centers and incredibly friendly resorts and accommodation.
North of Cebu lies the famously tropical and beautiful Malapascua Island where daily sightings of the normally elusive Thresher Sharks are common, large Rays are also regular visitors and for wreck enthusiasts there are some serious dives on impressive wrecks to be had.
Moalboal on Cebu’s southwest coastline has been a popular dive and snorkeling destination for many years. The main focus here is the amazing fish life and colorful reefs at nearby Pescador Island and recently the near year-round presence of a huge sardine school in shallow waters is proving a major draw.
