About The Dive Sites
Scuba Diving in Moalboal with Savedra is easy, safe and well organized. Especially popular is the fact that we offer every day 3 boat dives to our nearby dive spots every day, 365 days a year (weather permitting) and that we come back to the dive center after every dive. That guarantees individual attention and easy dive planning.
Scuba diving activities start early with three boats dives leaving at 7:30 am, 10:30 am and 2:30 pm, shore dives on request. Most of the dive sites, such as Pescador Island , can be reached within 20 minutes. A signboard with dive destinations of the next day can be found in front of the dive center. The time of departure and the dive site is noted on this signboard. Divers can enlist themselves for these dives as they please. Between dives the boats always return to the dive center, giving our divers the opportunity to rest and to grab some food in one of the many restaurants along the beach.
Diving on our house reef is exceptional since on most dives you will be joined by millions of sardines. The house reef consists of a shallow coral plateau that leads to impressive drop-off with a steep wall plummeting to depth of more than 60 meters (170 feet). The reef is covered with hard and soft corals and is inhabited by the typical reef dwellers and the occasional turtle (even on night dives). All divers are asked to do a check dive on our house reef before joining regular activities.
Guided night dives at the house reef are offered every evening from 6:00 pm. Once or twice a week, when conditions allow, we take the boat and do a night dive at some other sites such as Moalboal Bay or Pescador Island. Adequate training and/or experience is needed before you can join night dives.
Enriched Air Nitrox
Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox is highly recommended. We keep the price of our Nitrox separate from the dive fees, and we keep prices as competitive as possible. If you do not have a Nitrox certification, you can easily do your PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course with us prior to the trip, It only take 3 hours of lecture to get the course completed.
Dive Safety and Additional Services
Even though most dive spots can be reached within 10-20 minutes, our boats are equipped with extensive emergency equipment like oxygen, medic first aid kits and cellular phones. We work hard toprovide a safe and enjoyable experience for all our customers.
