Thresher Shark Dive  (5 Answers)

I read that Monad Shoal and Kimud are the 2 dive sites in Malapascua (Cebu, Philippines) where there are thresher shark sightings. Has anyone done these dives and can you compare the 2 dives in terms of diving conditions: current, visibility, distance from the island. Also, how long one has to stay below 80 feet to spot a thresher shark.

I used to dive at 90 -100 feet, but have not gone diving in 10 years. Is there any particular skill I need to brush up on to make the most of the dive?

Initial thoughts of Malapascua?  (6 Answers)

I have just read through ALL of the Malapascua Island tips here on VT and have a well rounded idea of the place...

What I would like to know is, is the weather towards end of January usually sunny? I saw a couple of VTers photos of it looking very stormy mid January this year. Secondly, as a first timer to PH, is this a cool place to go to get an idea of island life? I am a diver and would like to do some diving but I are there other things to do on the island? Can I go for a walk and see some interesting sights? Apart form Bounty Beach, are there other small coves I could explore?

Others have written about Bantayan Island which I understand is much bigger...is there more happening there? What are the beaches and accomodation like? I am looking for a nice hut somewhere!

Thank you for any advice you can pass back my way...Ive enjoyed reading everything, but now would like a bit more personal insight into the place!

I'm looking for a dive operator that is flexible, has value for money and definitely not that which has the highest rate per dive.

Any other good options for dive operators?

Thanks!

Malapascua beach cottages removal  (3 Answers)

Hi,
I read somewhere that at Malapascua all small buildings near to the sea have to be removed and that some resorts already are doing this...

My concern is that - in the short term - this demolition it isn't a pretty sight and that maybe it isn't that interesting to go there.

Has someone been there very recently? Is it true?

Holy Week Travel  (3 Answers)

Hey,

I'm hoping you can help me out - I am travelling in the Philippines for 3 weeks, arriving on the 19th which is obviously the start of Holy Week. I am booked to stay in Boracay for the week after Holy Week which is fine...but obviously Holy Week itself is going to be a very busy time for travelling.

My plan is to spend 3 or 4 days (20th - 24th) in Malapascua which I understand to be much more low key and chilled...but my question is - am I going to have trouble finding available accomodation there during this week if I just turn up on the day, which I plan to do... I am not too bothered where I stay as long as I have a clean room with a bed..

If you think this is going to be a problem can you suggest some places which will accept internet/credit card bookings as I have not found anywhere that seems to offer this facility..

Thanks in advance people

Dave

How many days - non divers  (3 Answers)

Sounds like a great place to pop in for a few days. 2 or 3 days enough. We are not scuba divers, but like to snorkel. Would you say it is worth a visit given our circumstances. Rest of proposed trip would include Boracay, Palawan, possibly Siargao and Manila/Banaue etc.

Booking needed now?  (3 Answers)

Hi there Malapascua fans, I am off there in a couple of weeks and am thinking if I should book ahead. Looking in the guides, it seems a lot cheaper than the prices quoted on resort sites. Same with the diving- I want to get out in the water quick as possible, but not sure whether to book ahead (a package?). Rgeards, Jem Mills
