For those who want a taste of what the Visayas has to offer , we have a short cruise that covers someof the best diving in the Philippine central group of islands.
Day 1: Embarkation in Mactan. Time permitting, check out dive in the area. Lift anchor for Cabilao after dinner.
Day 2: Cabilao Island.
Cabilao diving is an excellent mix of vistas of pristine soft and hard corals as well as macro critters galore. Expect to find steep walls decorated with gorgonians. The shallower reef areas are where seahorses, frogfishes, several types of ghost pipefish, blue ring octopus and nudibranchs abound.
Day 3: OSLOB
Oslob is now the year round host to the whale sharks and one of the few places in the world where you can dive with them in clear and shallow waters. Please follow the rules set for interacting with them to avoid injury to both divers and these gentle giants.
Day 4: BALICASAG
Balicasag Island is one of the most famous dive destinations in the Visayas and remains rightly so. From deep plateaus with a Black Coral forest, to walls festooned with sea fans and shallow areas populated by fields of hard coral, this small island has it all. If you love clown fishes, this is the place to be, as several species reside within the rich coral reefs.
Day 5: Disembark Mactan after breakfast
