Moalboal is one of the most attractive places for diving in Philippines, located in the south-west of the Sebu Island. Panagsama Beach has lots of dive centers, restaurants, hotels and hostels that prove the presence of interesting dive sites nearby. The most important of them are the walls of the Pescador Island that run down to 25-50m/82-164ft depth, along which divers can perform picturesque drift dives. Sometimes large schools of sardines swim near the walls. Another attractive event can be seen not far from Moalboal – at Oslob (1.5-2 hours of transfer time). Here local fishermen have tamed the whale sharks that can be observed during snorkeling. See details and prices for Philippines liveaboards -
