Why Stay & Dive with Us

Scuba Diving in the Philippines is famous for having the widest variety of marine species in the world and Malapascua Island is no exception, it’s famous worldwide for being the only place in the world where you can go diving with Thresher Sharks on a daily basis. This graceful shark usually lives in deep water and are very rarely spotted in shallower waters. In Malapascua they come up to around 20-30m first thing in the morning to get rid of parasites on their skin. Daily early morning Dives to Monad Shoal to see the Thresher Shark are offered. As the cleaning stations are at 30m Nitrox really is a must to maximise your chances of seeing the Sharks. It is also a good spot to encounter Manta Rays!

Apart from the diving with Thresher Sharks and Manta Rays, Malapascua Island has over 20 dive sites only a short boat ride away where there’s awesome Macro diving such as the colourful Mandarin fish, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Frogfish, Blue Ringed Octopus, Seahorses and many amazing Nudibranchs.If you fancy a bit of Wreck Diving there’s the “Dona Marilyn Wreck” a 1 & 1/2 hour boat ride from the island. It is a former 100m long passenger ferry which sank in 1988 during a Typhoon. Day Trips to Calanggaman Island is not to be missed an uninhabited tropical paradise famous for its white sand and its crystal clear blue waters and spectacular Wall Diving and if you’re lucky enough you might also see a Whale Shark. Malapascua is a great place for Macro Underwater Photography so don’t forget your Camera!!!
