Panglao Island Scuba Diving and the International Dive Fiesta

The International Dive Fiesta will be held in Panglao Island tomorrow and it’s going to be a big event where divers can check out the latest gear, talk with fellow dive enthusiasts, and watch or participate in special diving events. For those who haven’t been to the place yet, or plan on doing so in the future, here’s a primer on Panglao Island and why it figures prominently within local dive groups and communities.

Panglao Island is a small island located southwest of the island of Bohol. It has a population of more than 68,000 people, and most of them rely on tourism for their livelihood. The terrain is hilly, and one of its interesting geological features includes the Hinagdanan cave, a limestone cave which houses rock formations and a lagoon. Another prominent feature of Panglao are its beaches and dive sites. With white coral sand and clear blue waters, Panglao Island has been a favorite among divers and simple beach-goers alike.

Rich Marine Life
Panglao Island boasts of its diverse marine life, and it is no empty claim. In a study, more species of mollusks were found within a 15,000 hectare area of Panglao, compared to the 300 million hectares of study area in the Mediterranean. Due to the rich biodiversity of its marine life, it has attracted the attention of conservationists and recreational divers alike.

There are a number of beautiful dive sites within the area of Panglao Island. These include Napaling, Doljo Point, Kalipayan, the Habagat Wreck, and the Balicasag Dive Sites, to name a few. Panglao Island’s dive sites offer different kinds of diving experiences, with dive depth for the different dive sites ranging between 3 meters to 60 meters. A multitude of marine life can be spotted within these dive sites like lion fish, white tip sharks, moray eels, sea snakes, and a whole lot more, often with colorful corals as their backdrop.

International Dive Fiesta
Panglao, in cooperation with the Philippine Department of Tourism, will be hosting this year’s International Dive Fiesta. A lot of activities have been prepared for divers from all over the country and abroad, and Aquamundo will be a part of the festivities. Aquamundo will be holding a Technical Repair Seminar, and is inviting everyone to join. The International Dive Fiesta will be held at the Alona Central Parking Area, and will take place from June 12 – 15, 2014. See you there!
