Lets Dive! The seas of the Philippines
offer a wide variety of underwater life. SeaQuest has chosen
to set up bases in strategic locations so that we can offer
you the best of this region. In Alona Beach, Bohol is a world
class dive site called Balicasag Island, that offers you endless
drop-offs teaming with life. At this island schools of jackfish
and barracudas swarm around you and turtles are abundant.
In Malapascua we dive to meet up with the Thresher sharks and Manta rays that come to cleans themselves at the Monad Shoal cleaning station . In Moalboal the drop off is right in front of Sumisid Lodge and continues all along the coast there. In the middle of the Cebu straight in front of Moalboal you will find a rock that plummets up from the abyss. They named it Pescador Island and with it's dramatic over hangs and caves it's a classic. Be aware of the big amount of whale shark encounters in the Moalboal area.
Of course the The Visayas and the Philippines in general are very well known for its stunning macro underwater life. There are so many critters and other little creatures to be found that every dive will bring you something new. These waters are considered the best in the world for macro underwater life. Underwater photographers can eat their 'wide angel' hearts out here.
Favorable weather conditions allow us to dive all year round. The water temperature is always pleasantly between 26°C and 30°C and we recommend a 3-5mm wetsuit to keep you comfy during your dive. In the shallows near our dive centers sea conditions provide good teaching locations for courses of all levels. You will be practicing your newly learnt skills in between the fishes in turquoise blue waters. WOW!
SeaQuest operates with local banca's on all our locations as well as on our safari's. Banca's are local outrigger boats, commonly used in these waters and over the years have proven themselves seaworthy. To get to nearby dive sites we use speedboats (with sunroofs) mounted with Yamaha outboard engines. All banca's and dive centers are fitted with oxygen, first aid, spare equipment and communication facilities to react speedy and adequate in an emergency situation. To avoid emergency situations we are very strict on dept limits, maximum depth is 40 meters/130 feet and we don't make deco-dives. If necessary there is a fully equipped recompression chamber centrally located in Cebu city.
All our dive center locations are very fortunate to have great house reefs (good snorkeling) and most other dive sites are more or less only 45 minutes boat ride away. The wide variety of dive sites allows us to offer different kinds of dives (shallow, deep, drift) and allows us to facilitate divers of all levels. Due to the easy accessibility to the dive sites we are very flexible in our time schedules and planning. We can facilitate dives from early in the morning until in the evening and we can provide you with multiple dives per day. You wanna dive? We can deliver!
The SeaQuest Dive Centers are all equipped with Cressie-Sub dive gear. We provide 10, 12 and 15 liter aluminum tanks international valves. If you use a DIN regulator then we also have DIN tanks for your convenience. To fill our dive tanks we use Bauer and LW compressors to provide you with good clean air. On all locations we offer Nitrox fills up to 32% and this can be very handy if you want to stay at depth a little bit longer to catch that extra glimpse of the Thresher shark's and manta's in Malapascua or the Pygmy seahorses in Bohol
Non divers are always welcome on our dive boats to check out the snorkeling or just lazy around and enjoy the beach life on one of the tropical islands.
