At the heart of the Coral Triangle lies the 7000 islands of the Philippines, supporting a variety of ecosystems and a wide diversity of marine life. We chose the Central Visayas, as they encompass a great diversity of dive sites serious divers are looking for: big schools of jacks, barracudas, and turtles in Balicasag; macro and critters playgrounds in Dauin; giant trevallys and humphead parrotfish in Apo Island; and, of course, the famous thresher sharks of Malapascua!
The dive operator regularly does clean ups, and charters frequently to research institutes such as the University of Queensland's Global Change Institute.
For divers of all levels who like big and small. Note that you should have an advanced level for the Thresher Sharks dive in Malapascua, and for any night dives. Other activities include snorkeling and some island visits.
