At Malapascua we are very fortunate to be able to offer up to 4 splendid dives a day. We start early to go dive with the Thresher sharks and we end the day with a night/sunset dive.
As much as possible we like to organize a schedule that allows all our divers to see the best of what Malapascua has on offer. The star of the show is of-course the elusive yet graceful Thresher shark. At the dive site called Monad Shoal we encounter shark action that makes it unique in the world. At dawn and probably before that the Thresher sharks com up from the deep to glide through the ‘cleaning station’ and sometimes they are not alone! Very regularly we see eagle rays and manta coming here for the same service. When the manta’s are in season we go back to Monad shoal in the afternoon. That’s manta time.
In season there is a possibility to see Hammerheads at Kimud shoal dive sites. This dive is a dive into the blue realm and either we see the sharks or we see nothing more than blue. Remember that if you do see the hammers it’s important to not chase them off. Stay calm, still and quite, the first sharks are usually the scouts of the bigger pack.
Try also to make it out to Gato Island (white tip reef sharks), do a night dive at Lighthouse reef (mandarin fish) and if possible (favorable weather and sea condition) a day trip to the mesmerizing Kalanggaman atol island. Here you can make that picture that you post to your facebook to envy all your friends.
Of course as a professional dive operator Devocean divers ensures that all measures are taken for you to go out and enjoy your hobby knowing that professional safety preparation are in place.
The water temperature ranges from 25°-27°C in December through to February and 27°-30°C the rest of the year. A 3 – 5 mm wet-suit (long-sleeves) is recommended.
Please take note that we do not allow deco dives and all divers should be aware of the fact that the nearest re compression chamber is in Cebu city.
