Situated in the centre of the Visayas, one of the Philippines three main geographical divisions, Bohol has some of the best diving in the Philippines. Bohol is the Philippines’ 10th largest island and offers a complete vacation experience, combining lush natural beauty on land with exquisite diving and excellent underwater photography possibilities. 

WHY WE LOVE DIVING IN BOHOL

An underwater photographers dream!

Pygmy seahorse?  Need we say more?

Amazing scenery above and below the water.

Diving in Bohol

Just a quick ferry journey from Cebu, Bohol offers travellers a wealth of options both on and off the beaten track. The island province is known almost exclusively through images of cute bug-eyed tarsiers and the majestic Chocolate Hills, and while both are fantastic highlights, in reality it’s the diving that brings in the crowds.

The main Anda dive sites consist of a 13km wall starting in Guindulman and ending opposite the pristine white sand beaches of the town of Anda. The wall is broken in several places by sandy interludes, large crevices formed by volcanic activity long ago and small caves. The largest being Snappers Cave, a cave with several chambers large enough to swim inside with a torch.

 

The deepest sections of the wall are 30m where large pelagic fish can be seen swimming following the direction of the wall. Large whip corals, Pygmy Sea Horses, Scorpion Fish and numerous Frogfish can be found hiding on the wall from 10 to 20m.

 

The top of the wall varies from 5 to 8m where the true beauty of the diving in Anda can be found, pristine soft coral gardens, near perfect visibility and warm water make diving suitable for a range of abilities. The best section of wall is without doubt Paradise Gardens where a colony of Turtles can be found in residence, feeding on sea grass on a small rocky outcrop.
