Hi all, this dive trip is organized by the Singapore dive community but we welcome divers from other countries as well to join us on this great trip. We’re going on a 10 day diving trip to the Philippines. This is a great opportunity to meet locals and expats from Singapore as well. Do you want to join us?

PROGRAM: “MAGIC ISLAND” IN MOALBOAL & “MAGIC OCEANS” IN BOHOL
The Singapore team leaves Friday Aug 3rd at 21.20 to Cebu. We know there is a flight from Hong Kong to Cebu with a stop in Manila. It’s not a short flight but still maybe worth for a 10 day trip. There is a 2h car transfer to Moalboal.
We stay 4 nights in Magic Island resort and dive the famous coral walls of Moalboal, the Sardine bait ball and Pescador island (2.5 days of boat diving + unlimited house reef diving).
We’ll do a dive & snorkel trip to the whale sharks of Oslob and then a transfer to Bohol island.
We will stay 4 nights in Magic Ocean resort in Bohol for a unique muck diving and coral reef experience and relax on the beautiful beaches Protected content from the resort).
Sunday morning Aug 12th we return to Cebu to take the 16.55 flight to Singapore & Hong Kong

WHAT CAN YOU SEE WHILE DIVING? EVERYTHING - FROM XXS TO XXL!
Moalboal: from the tiny pygmy seahorse to the thresher shark often spotted hunting the huge school of sardines. The Sardine bait ball with more than a million sardines. Turtles all over, beautiful soft/hard coral formations, barracudas, frogfish, sea snakes, large schools of fish and an airplane wreck. The uninhabited Pescador island has huge walls covered with sea fans and all the tropical fish you can think of. The divesite “Cathedral” offers a great cavern dive.
Oslob: on our way to Bohol we dive & snorkel with whale sharks (it’s somewhat touristy but your 99% chance to see whale sharks).
Bohol: a very quiet dive destination where you can see an occasional manta, but it is mostly known for interesting macro life and critters such as ghost pipefish, seahorses (pygmy and larger ones), flamboyant cuttlefish, octopus, amazing nudibranches and also turtles.
