Malapascua Dive Adventure

On this diving holiday to the Philippines there is plenty for divers to explore with its picturesque white sand beaches, kaleidoscopic coral reefs, spectacular biodiversity, weird and wonderful macro life and shark encounters. Led by award winning writer and photographer, and editor of SCUBA magazine, Simon Rogerson, this trip visits the island of Malapascua for thresher shark encounters and an array of beguiling critters on the local dive sites. There are two full day trips planned, one to Kalanggaman, an idyllic tropical island, and Gato Island for its reefs, caves and tunnels.

Staying at the charming boutique Tepanee Beach Resort, it makes a lovely base for our stay with its own private beach, panoramic views and a dive centre just a stone's throw away.

 

The highlight of the trip is our early morning visits to Monad Shoal where we can expect to encounter thresher sharks as they visit the cleaning stations. Simon has a wealth of experience with the threshers of Malapascua having previously researched them here and he cannot wait to return to this special part of the world.

 

Enjoying 20 dives over the nine days, there is ample opportunity to explore the dive sites of Malapascua and beyond. Frogfish, mandarin fish and nudibranch are just some of the critters common in this area, whilst white-tip sharks are also present at Gato Island. We have exclusive use of one of the dive boats and its experienced crew. Our itinerary is kept flexible dependent on conditions and the group's interests.
