The Location:

 

 

Arriving in Cebu on Sunday 6th June, we will be met and transferred by minibus & dive-boat to our first resort in Malapascua; a small island situated approx 7 kilometres north-east of Cebu on the Pacific rim for five nights and four days of diving.

We then head off to the Magic Islands Resort at MoalBoal. This is a world class diving destination for all sorts of underwater wildlife where we will be based for the next seven nights and six days of diving before heading back to Cebu for our return flights on Friday 18th June 2022.

 

The Accommodation:

 

 

Located on a beautiful tropical island beach, the Tepanee Beach Resort & Thresher Shark Divers is the ideal place to base ourselves for the first week whilst we head out to Monad Shoal in search of thresher sharks.

The Tepanee Resort is on a small hill overlooking a private beach. There are cottages and standard garden eco-villas with modern but simple facilities including en-suite bathroom and air-conditioning. We are on a FULL BOARD basis, with breakfast at Tepanee – moving to Thresher Shark Divers for lunch & dinners.

 

The TSD dive centre is near the resort for convenience, with meals being served in the great open air restaurant “Oscars” upsatirs amid the palm tress- with a bar of course, for rehydration purposes.

Early morning boat trips head to Monad Shoal for thresher shark encounters.

Other dive sites offer a great range of macro, wreck, cave and wall diving. Nitrox is available.

The latter part of our stay will be based at the Magic Islands Resort at MoalBoal.

 

 

This a spacious beachfront resort built for divers by divers, located on the southern MoalBoal peninsula.

We are in standard rooms with en-suite and air conditioning. The resort only has 10 rooms – all located by the beach on the edge of the pacific rim.

 

The Itinerary:

 

 

Our outbound flight takes off from London Heathrow at 14.20pm on Emirates Airlines. We stop en route for a brief 90mins in Dubai to stretch our legs, then onwards to Cebu in the Philippines.

Malapascua

Arriving in Cebu on Sunday 6th June, we will be met and transferred by minibus & dive-boat to our first resort in Malapascua.

Malapascua is known as one of the best shark diving locations in the Philippines.

Diverse species of sharks seen here include whitetip, blacktip, bamboo, nurse, hammerheads, and of course the magnificent THRESHER SHARKS.

Monad Shoal just off Malapascua is known as the only place in the world where threshers can be closely observed on a daily basis.

Other large pelagic wildlife seen on Monad include Manta & Devil Rays, with an impressive array of Nudibranch, pipe fish and FrogFish which will keep macro photographers happy.

June is a great month to visit, with regular Manta sightings and (virtually) guaranteed Thresher shark encounters.

Staying at the Tepanee Beach Resort & Thresher Shark Divers, we will be based here for ten dives over 5 nights and 4 days, with early morning boat trips heading to Monad Shoal for thresher shark encounters.

Other dive sites offer a great range of macro, wreck, cave and wall diving. Nitrox is available.

We depart Malapascua on Friday 11th June 2022 and head to Magic Islands Resort at MoalBoal.

This is a big day of travel by road and boat, where we will get to see the countryside and lifestyle of the Philippines…

We will also head off to Pescador sland a short 10 minute cruise away, with great potential to find schooling pelagic, turtles, enormous groupers, napoleon wrasse, whitetip sharks and pristine hard corals.

Diving at Magic Islands is simply stunning. There are huge walls in the Tanon strait with soft corals & gorgonian fans, with all forms of marine wildlife form pigmy seahorses to cuttlesfish, frogfish to sea snakes.

The amazing “Cathedral” dive site is a labyrinth of swim throughs with wonderful light for photography.

The on-site dive centre is operated by Magic Islands who offer daily boat dives throughout the year both locally and to nearby Pescador Island. Nitrox is available.

Note that on the last day we can dive all day as flights are late afternoon on departure day.
