Come and dive at Malapascua, Cebu, with Fun & Sun and meet Malapascua thresher sharks! Malapascua Island is located off the northern tip of the island of Cebu, in the Visayas. From Cebu City, it will take you approximately 3 hours to reach the port of Maya from where you will take a 30 minute banca boat ride to reach this quaint and enchanting island.
The island is barely 2 sq. km with its main white sand beach, Bounty Beach, facing south where Fun & Sun Dive Center is located. There are several resorts and restaurants, our team will be pleased to recommend to you to enjoy your Malapascua Experience.
Come and join us to see some cool mating mandarin fish during a Sunset Dive. Wake up before the sun rises and head on board our banca to Monad Shoal and admire the majestic circling thresher sharks! Don’t miss the great day trip to Gato Island and discover the amazing marine biodiversity present there, from white tip sharks to harlequin shrimp, from pigmy seahorse to courting cuttlefish, from colorful nudibranches to dancing soft coral!
This is the site that has put Malapascua Island on the Diving World Map. Early divers will have the chance to experience magnificent encounters with Thresher Sharks, that visit several “cleaning stations.” Devil Rays as well as Manta rays are frequent visitors of this sunken island dive site, especially early in the afternoon. A little further, Kimud Shoal is where Hammerhead Sharks can be spotted
A small rock island located 1hr 30mins off Malapascua. Initially knows as a Sea Snake Sanctuary, there are large White Tip Sharks resting under boulders or swimming around at the entrance of caves, which divers can use to cross underneath the island. The Blue Ring Octopus, the Pigmy Seahorse and the Harlequin Shrimp are some of the favorite sightings here. Bamboo Sharks are occasionally spotted here. This site is covered with a wide variety of hard and soft coral as well.
A stones throw away from the island lighthouse, this very shallow dive comes alive and is teeming with marine life at sunset. A few meters from an old wreck lying in the sand, you can find hard coral formations where Mandarin Fish reside. Spend time to see these colorful fish mating before looking for Seahorses, Octopus and Squid as the night takes over.
Located at the north point of the island, four different kinds of lionfish could be spotted here, as well as, colorful Angel fish, Frog fish and Anglerfish. Often, Jacks and Barracudas hunt around this area. This is also a nice place to see Nudibranchs and watch out for the flamboyant cuttlefish.
Dona Marilyn Wreck
This is one of the largest wrecks found in the Visayas. It lies in open water at a depth ranging from 17-35 meters. This is a spectacular dive. Snappers, batfish, puffer fish, moray eels are making this wreck their home. Large Stingrays are often seen in the sandy bottom.
Another fantastic day trip would be to Kalamangan Island, approximately an hours boat ride away south of Malapascua. This spectacular and isolated island has a breathtaking sand bar that stretches as far as the eyes can see. It is truly a paradise for both divers and non-divers. Turtles and eagle Rays are occasionally spotted here as well as other tropical fish that are frequently seen in wall dives.
