With their big eyes and long tails, thresher sharks are some of the planet’s most attractive sharks — and Malapascua Island is the only place where you can see them every day. Choose this shark dive for Advanced Open Water divers to watch these spectacular creatures at Monad Shoal in a group of no more than 15 people. After meeting at the diving center, hop on a spacious banca boat out to Monad Shoal. Once there, dive to depths of between 16–30 meters (52.5–98.4 feet) with an experienced PADI Divemaster to spot thresher sharks. Enjoy the chance to also see other exotic marine life, such as whitetip reef sharks, grey sharks, devil rays, blue-ringed octopus, ornate ghost pipefish, frogfish, and a huge variety of nudibranchs and shrimps. Return to the original meeting point after about 2 hours, just in time for breakfast. Please note that SCUBA diving equipment is not included in the program so please select it upon check-out as an add-on if needed. Since the dive is early in the morning, it is recommended to arrive at the island the day before. Cebu or Mactan pickup and drop-off can be provided upon option selection.

Amazing to see the sardine run!

While the ride from Mactan was a bit long for me 2.5hrs, i must compliment the good driving skills! It was nice to have a car pickup, comfy for two where we can catch up on sleep. We managed to see the amazing sardine run and guide helped to search out the sea turtles and found 2 deep in the waters but still visible. Corals were less of what we expected. But overall , a very good experience and a good deal
