Sogod Bay in Southern Leyte offers wonderful scuba diving with spectacular dive sites in one of the Philippines’ most recently discovered dive destinations. The prolific marine life ranges from pygmy seahorses through to whale sharks and there is also an incredible variety of extremely healthy and undamaged hard and soft coral. Sogod Bay offers a plethora of pristine reefs and our dive boat will probably be the only one at any given site dived during your stay. Indeed, much of the Sogod Bay area is essentially virgin territory and as a result we are still discovering new dive sites. You can experience all this in a beautiful and peaceful tropical setting and truly relax and enjoy your holiday - without fighting with hoards of other divers!
We have 2 banca dive boats both fully equipped with safety equipment and oxygen.
We have 5 great dives right outside the resort. The dives range from 15 up to 40 metres and comprise of: Max’s Climax 1 and 2 (wall dives); Voltaire’s Rock; Bulawarte and a wreck dive. All these dives have plenty of big fish action when current is moving. We’re also lucky enough to have pygmy seahorses, frogfish and hawksbill turtles. Diverse soft and hard corals abound including huge gorgonian fans and a massive number of developed whip corals. To the north of our resort (about 20 to 30 mins boat ride away) we have 4 great dive sites: Bunga Bend, Whip City, Cantamac and Malitbog wreck. These sites vary in depth from 15 to 35 metres and have diverse fish and coral life: nudibanches, ribbon eels, pigmy seahorses, ghost pipe fish and manta shrimp. To the south of the resort (about 10 to 30 mins boat ride) we have Medicare and Limasawa Island. Tankan and Santa Sofia has fantastic array of colourful soft corals and huge barrel corals. Mandarin Fish, turtles, eagle rays, batfish and frogfish are frequent visitors to thiese sites. The famous Limasawa Island is not only famous for Magellan’s visit but also for the incredible diving. Adrian’s Cove and Zack’s Cove dive sites are 20 to 50 metres deep and have dark eerie steep walls with gorgonian fans and massive table corals. We often see nudibranchs and occasionally the odd hammerhead! To the East:
Directly across Sogod Bay from our resort lies Panoan Island and Napantao dive site. The dive is also a marine sanctuary with a large wall dropping to depths of 50 metres. Giant gorgonian fans are abundant on the wall. It is spectacular on a sunny day and looks absolutely majestic. When the current is ripping hard large pelagic fish are often seen here. This is one dive you must not miss while your visiting our resort!
