Take a dive into Bohol’s waters as this fun diving tour takes you around multiple sites in the province’s underwater treasure: Balicasag Island. Get up close with magnificent sea turtles, endless coral reefs, and colorful fish. 

Bohol is a top island destination in the Visayas region. It boasts natural wonders such as the Chocolate Hills, the Philippine tarsier, and white sands of Panglao Island. But one of its well-kept secrets is Balicasag Island, with waters where you can find a variety of marine life from the tiniest of nudibranchs to massive whale sharks. The first dive site you will explore in Balicasag is Diver’s Heaven, and true to its name, it is a paradise for underwater enthusiasts. You might even have a turtle encounter on its shallow parts. As you make your way down to its depths of about 25 meters, you will be accompanied by big mouth mackerel, needlefish, bluefin trevallies, and barracudas. Expect to see gorgonian sea fans, soft and hard corals, and tube sponges along the way.

From here, you will proceed to the second dive at Black Forest. Just like Diver’s Heaven, you will be greeted by green sea turtles as you start your dive at just around 6 meters deep. Continuing your way down to depths of 15 to 25 meters, you will see schools of jackfish, trevallies, parrotfish, and other reef fish. The area also abound with black corals, antipathes, and a wide array of macro life. If you are lucky, a whale shark makes a surprise appearance in this area so always keep an eye out for them!

The last leg of this diving tour takes you to the Cathedral. This dive site is famed for its large overhangs along the wall, alongside ledges and gaps. On a sunny day, the light reflected on the cathedral creates a majestic effect. You will also see abundant reef fish, barracudas, and sea turtles. 

Plunge into Bohol’s waters and explore the wonderful spectacle beneath Balicasag Island with this tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
