Cabilao Diving is a brand-new and soon to open (after the COVID-19 madness) dive center based within the grounds of Isla Hayahay Beach Resort & Restaurant. We enjoy beautiful year-round diving right in the heart of the Philippines. Thanks to our exquisite location, we dive on both Pangangan and Cabilao Islands, where a wealth of diverse marine life thrives.. For now still in the construction phase but slowly making progress. The equipment room is already built and at the moment we are working on the compressor house.
At the time of the opening we will have brand-new scuba equipment and compressors and lots of exciting dive sites to choose from.
Most of the diving will take place around Cabilao Island, one of the best reefs in the Philippines and only a 15-20 minute boat ride from the resort. There are more than 20 breathtaking and unique dive sites around Cabilao and Pangangan Islands. All dive spots here offer something for every experience and comfort level. From shallow reefs decorated by tropical fish and covered in colorful hard and soft corals for beginners, to deeper wall dives with dotted by enormous gorgonians and tiny macro species for advanced divers, there is more than enough to keep everyone entertained. In addition to a multitude of macro critters, including rare pygmy seahorses and plenty of nudibranch, we are blessed with the presence of friendly turtles and even eagle rays. If you’re lucky during your stay, you might be graced with a passing pelagic giant, such as the beloved, majestic whale shark!
We would like to invite you to have a look at our new website. There are lots of interesting posts to read and an overview of the dive sites, including a description of what you could see there when you stick your head underwater.
Of course we offer PADI dive courses and, when you are not yet ready to do a course, Discover Scuba Diving; a 1 day program to let you experience what it is like to dive and explore the underwater world while you can breath like on land.
