Moalboal Dive Overview

The diving at Moalboal is extremely varied and some of the best diving in the Philippines. There are slopes and walls, small caves and canyons and none of the coral reefs are affected by dynamite fishing. They have a huge variety of marine life, from very small nudibranchs to very big whale sharks. From XS to XXL! Water temperature: coldest 26 degrees Celcius in January till warmest 29 degrees Celcius in July. Coldest 80 degrees Fahrenheit in January till warmest 84 degrees Fahrenheit in July.

Moalboal Dive Sites

Here are some of the favorite dive sites in Moalboal. Feel free to contact us to know more about these and other sites. 

  • Magic point - Depth: runs from 5 till 55 metres/15 till 180 feet, visibility 15 till 25 metres/50 till 80 feet. Their fantastic house reef (a drop off) is just in front of their dive center and there are lots to see. Schools of jacks and tuna hunting on a prestige reef covered with hard, soft and fan corals. We also have our frogfish, a black, yellow and grey one. There are always turtles around and even while snorkeling you're bound to see them. We've even seen a whale shark and several white tip reef sharks on our house reef. During a night dive, you can see decorator crabs, cuttlefish, nudibranchs, snake eels, sea snakes and many more.
  • Interested in diving with sharks and other large marine animals? Check out diving in Tubbata Reef.
  • Discovery point - Depth: 5 till 30 metres/15 till 100 feet, visibility 10 till 25 metres/30 till 80 feet. This is a spot for macro lovers!
  • Tongo point - Depth: 5 till 55 metres/15 till 180 feet, visibility 15 till 25 metres/50 till 80 feet. This is everything a diver wants! A drop off covered with hard and soft corals, fan corals, small caves, occasional turtles and masses of small creatures like nudibranchs, leaf fish, harlequin ghost pipefish etc. But don’t be surprised if you see barracudas, jacks or a whale shark.
  • Interested in corals? Check out our list of the Best Coral Reefs in the World.
  • Goby Point - Depth: 5 to 10 metres/15 to 30 feet. Visibility 10 to 15 meters/30 to 50 feet. Big rocks on a sandy bottom with masses of small lifelike boxer shrimps, signal gobbies, nudibranchs, pegasus and much more. The perfect afternoon dive!
  • Talisay Wall - Depth: 5 till 55 metres/15 till 180 feet, visibility 15 till 30 metres/50 till 100 feet. A variable dive with a slope and wall. There are several caves to be found and explored. Lots of black coral, batfish, barracuda, mandarin fish and sometimes a turtle. Because of the combination of slope and wall, this is also a great place for a night dive.
  • Talisay point - Depth: 5 till 55 metres/15 till 180 feet, visibility 15 till 30 meters/50 till 100 feet. A beautiful slope, full of hard corals mixed with soft and leather corals. You can find batfish, crocodile needlefish, turtles, sea snakes, frogfish, anemones with shrimps and clownfish to name but a few. In the evenings mandarin fish will come out in search of food.

Magic Island Dive Center Overview

Walk from the dive center straight into the water for a relaxing dive on their fabulous house reef by day or night. On your return, you can rinse your gear and take a shower. Afterwards, retire to the lounge to talk about what you saw and to look it up at one of the many marine life books. They have a well-equipped classroom for all the courses offered, but prefer teaching on one of their terraces. They have three traditional banka dive boats to take you to the dive sites, including Pescador Island. The boats were built locally especially for them at Magic Island.

I just cannot say enough great things about Magic Island Dive Resort. The staff is phenomenal from the waitresses and cooks to the housekeeping staff to the dive staff. They learned our names within a day of being there and addressed us by name. The waitresses knew our preferences within a day or two. The crew on the boats were attentive and the divemasters were helpful and awesome at finding critters. The accommodations are basic, but extremely clean. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Food is excellent and you have a choice of partaking of the family style meal on offer in the evening, or ordering from a menu. We will definitely return!
