Scuba Diving beautiful Cebu Philippines

Posted by: sddiver96

sddiver96

If you want to look at scuba diving with an added thrill to it, then scuba diving in Cebu Philippines with sharks has to be it. Shark diving in the Philippines is a one way ticket to a scuba dive you'll never forget. It is in the region of Cebu where the best scuba diving with sharks experience takes place.
Cebu scuba diving means shark diving in the Philippines and there is no better spot than clocking a mantra, Thresher shark or a tiny pygmy sea horse. Malapascua Island offers the scuba diver an opportunity to see Thresher sharks, but our favorite shark diving spot in the Philippines is the aptly named, Thresher Point. 


If you dive down deep at Thresher Point, about 45 feet or so, you will see the local resident Threshers gliding effortlessly and menacingly around the deep waters. The sharks look like they are on some kind of security patrol, and at a stunning four metres long, you'll not miss the beasts.
It needs to be mentioned that scuba diving Cebu with sharks might involve noticing the Threshers have wandered off for a browse, along the deep Thresher Point waters, so there are times when they go missing. It is estimated by dive regulars that you will have about a 50/50 chance of spotting Threshers. 


Tengo Point is a wonderful pitch for your Cebu scuba diving experience; here you can enjoy wall diving and see some coral reefs while looking for the many Threshers swimming about. There are also some whale sharks to spot if you are lucky and find a point beyond the wall.
Cebu scuba diving will offer divers a fantastic opportunity to view the giant turtles, sea corals and sharks in the waters off Moalboal, a dive hot spot for checking out the sharks and whale sharks. Boats leave the shores along Moalboal daily for diving groups to moor up at Sunken Island or Apo Island, where among some of the attractions you will find are a plane wreck and a series of night dives. 


Shark diving in the Philippines is an experience you are unlikely to forget and you'll not have to worry about the weather either. These waters are regularly around 28C (84F) and the year-round warmth will see air temperatures range from 27C (81F) on a cool day to 32C (90F) on a hot day.
