Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    The day before your scheduled dives, make your own way to the dive shop to get fitted with your equipment so that you are ready to go early on the morning of your dive.

    On the day of your dive, head out before sunrise in order to see the thresher sharks when they come out at first light. Sip the provided tea or coffee as you relax on the spacious boat and cruise out to Monad Shoal, your first dive site. Receive a safety briefing and orientation from your guide, then complete your dive. Youโ€™ll return to shore after about two hours in time for breakfast (not included).

    Please note: the shark dive requires Advanced Open Water certification. If you are Open Water, you can upgrade your booking onโ€“site to make the shark dive a PADI Deep Adventure Dive, which certifies you to dive to a depth of 30 meters.

    Please note: You need to be saying on Malapascua Island itself to book this package. 

    All of the dives operate from the boat and your package includes a dive master guide, boat transport, tanks and weights, tea, coffee, and drinking water. You have the option to include equipment rental or bring your own scuba gear.
