seaquest logo dive SAFARI

Seaquest Dive Center is happy to announce that we created a new dive safari for our guests. Besides our famous Visayas Dive Safari we now also offer the Anda-Southern Leyte Dive Safari. 

The starting point of this safari is at Oasis Resort, Alona Beach, Bohol. It's nice to arrive a few days prior to the safari to do some diving around Panglao. The welcome briefing is organized by your safari guide Marleen on the evening before the departure in Oasis Resort.  

In the early morning the boat will depart from Alona Beach to Anda. During your 3 nights stay in Anda guests will stay in the beautiful Anda White Beach Resort. Upon arrival in Anda it's time to make your first 2 dives of the safari. Anda offers a wonderful variety of diving on a 14 kilometer reef. The approximately 25 dive sites offers superb visibility with many different kind of species like: giant schools of Jack Fish, Frog Fishes, Mandarin Fishes, Seahorses and Pygme Seahorses, Ghost Pipe Fishes, Blue Ringed Octopus, Cuttlefishes and many Turtles. Anda offers great muck-diving where you can find many critters. 

Anda White Beach Resort
Anda White Beach Resort is a small tranquil island getaway that offers you a white beach, crystal clear tropical waters and endless sun. This is an authentic tropical paradise with well-manicured grounds and breathtaking views all around, either from the comfort of your room or from the seaside swimming pool.  

After 3 nights in Anda it is time to move on to Southern Leyte. The dive sites in Southern Leyte are good for beginners, advanced and experienced divers. Southern Leyte is famous for his Whale-Sharks, White Tip Sharks and many species like; Frog Fishes, Turtles, Groupers, Octopuses and Nudibranches. Besides that there are the beautiful and colorful coral reefs with large sponges, table corals full withcolorful fishes. During your 3 nights stay in Southern Leyte guests will stay in Kuting Reef Resort.

Kuting Reef Resort
Kuting Reef Resort is considered as one of Southern Leyte's most intimate secrets. It is situated in aprivate cove at Barangay Asuncion in the town of Macrohon. For many years, only a few people knew about the existence of a fine pebble beach within a 3-hectare property covered by Bermuda grass and planted with tall 30 to 40 year old cocnut trees. Kuting Reef Resort gives you an relaxed tropical resort experience.

Whale Shark Interaction
The Seauqest Anda-Leyte Safari is extra special because of the possibility to meet the largest known extant fish in the world: The Whale Shark! During the safari, Seaquest organizes 1 morning a Whale Shark interaction in the Whale Shark Sanctuary in Southern Leyte. Professional spotters will come on board to help us find this amazing creature of nature. In Southern Leyte there are very few tourists around, so the Whale Shark Sanctuary is mostly basically untouched. 

During the safari in Anda and Leyte there is also a big possibility to spot the Whale Sharks during your ''regular'' dives.
