Sea Explorers Philippines 

We can now offer the best of diving and island hopping in the Philippines  with our partner  Sea Explorers. Flexibility is the key and you can decide if you want to stay on land at one of their gorgeous resorts, or if you would like to transfer by boat between the resorts and stay and dive a few days in different locations.  There are loads of activities that will keep you busy - you can also attend one of Sea Explorers Dive Safaris,  and sail around in a traditional banca boat, diving the very best locations around Cebu and Negros and choose between a livaboard or a variety of beach hotels. Sea Explorer has resorts in Alona, ​​Cabilao, Dauin & Malapascua.

When to go: Officially there are two main seasons in the Philippines - the dry season (October - June) and the wet season (July - September). However, this is a long island chain so it is difficult to generalise - some diving areas will be more sheltered some less. The area around Cebu (including Visayas and Malapascua) normally receives less rain, even during the wet season.
You can dive all year round in the Philippines but visibility decreases normally during the rainy season (July to September).
Best time to see hammerheads around Cabilao Island is between Jan-June.
Water temperature: Water temperature does not drop much in the Philippines, ranging from 25 - 28 degrees.
Currents: almost none at most of the dive sites.
Visibility: usually around 10-20m, but can go up to 30m in some of the places offshore
