Scuba Diving in Moalboal

Moalboal is a former fishing village on the south west coast of Cebu in the Philippines. We are an easy scenic ride from Cebu (Mactan) international airport, which is approximately 90 kilometers away.  Over the years Moalboal has become a haven for snorkellers, scuba divers and lovers of the ocean. With lots of choices for accommodation, food and entertainment this is the perfect stage for your vacation by the sea. The main attraction is the diving, Moalboal is sandwiched between several islands, water temperatures that range from 26 to 28 degrees celsius, great visibility, incredibly diverse marine life, and some of the easiest access dive sites in the world.

Our Dive Sites

Moalboal offers some of the easiest to access dive sites in the world, just a few meters swim from shore puts you over a near-vertical wall that stretches the length of the peninsular. From depths of three meters to sixty meters, most of these dives sites can be accessed safely by complete beginners, through to seasoned technical divers. Moalboal gained international recognition for its abundance of sea turtles, visiting whale sharks, and more recently the sardine ball that has made Panagsama home. Macro lovers will also be spoiled here, the wall is home to an incredible variety of marine life. We visit favorites like Pescador Island, the Sardine ball and the Marine Sanctuaries every day, for the more experienced diver we have some offshore dive sites such as Sunken Island.
