Itinerary Details

Complete a full loop around Cebu on this fabulous 360 Visayas itinerary on board our luxury Philippines Aggressor liveaboard.

Visayas 360 Description

A new itinerary for 2020: Dive a complete 360 around Cebu island. From the decks of your Philippines liveaboard, you can explore a vast expanse of sea and island hop between the pristine, colourful reefs and diverse marine life. This area, known as the Visayas, boasts 7 or 10 night itinerary mixing up coral covered walls to dark sand macro dives. Running each year from June through to February pack in dives at the hot spots that draw divers to the Philippines - Pescador, Moalboal, Malapascua, Kalanggaman, Cabilao and Balicasag and on 10 night itineraries, Apo Island and Dumaguete too. These are diverse sites that are sure to make your smile.

The Visayas 360 tour starts from Cebu city and from here your exploration of world class reef dives begins. The diving from in each area is diverse as you move from current swept walls to scenic coral gardens and muck dives. This itinerary will get you closer to a huge range of marine life. From the biggest inhabitants to the very smallest and microscopic critters, there is a dive along this route that will get your attention. If your passion is macro, then Cabilao will thrill, home to great gorgonian sea fans and the tiniest pygmy seahorses hiding in the fronds. Giant frogfish, a cornucopia of nudibranch and ghost pipefish are all regularly seen. Malapascua is home to a famous thresher shark dive at Monad Shoal, but the nudibranchs and macro life is also impressive. Drift along the steep, black coral crusted walls of Kalanggaman. Balicasag throngs with schooling fish. Sardines, snapper and barracuda, these massive schools of fish are mesmerising. Turtles of all shapes and sizes can be found at many reefs along the route but these are not the only large inhabitants. Pescador is known for the huge bait balls of sardines that swirl around divers. And watch for passing whalesharks, travelling through the deep water channel.

The Visayas 360 itinerary will suit most experience levels although some dives will be speedy drifts. Dives vary in depth from shallow pinnacles to deep caves. You will rarely come across other divers on this itinerary so it is perfect for anyone looking for the ultimate dive escapism. Photographers and videographers will have no end of subjects to snap away at. And with all of the advantages of liveaboard diving, you can relax in the Philippines without a care in the world. Supreme diving meets utter convenience and comfort to make this itinerary a winning recipe.
