The dive center of Magic Oceans Dive Resort

If you haven’t noticed it yet, Magic Oceans is primarily a Scuba Diving Resort. Of course, everyone is welcome, but we mainly cater to divers or people who are interested in becoming divers.
The super-size dive centre can comfortably accommodate 35 divers and every diver gets his/her own personal spot during the whole stay, to dry and store gear.  The floor of the dive centre is made of pebbles and because of that not slippery at all.  You can find 3 showers and 5 large rinse tanks in the wet area, and a dedicated camera area with electricity, lights and airguns.

We have 10ltr/60ft³, 12ltr/80ft³ and 15ltr/100ft³ aluminium tanks with both DIN and Int. connection, suitable for both air and Nitrox. Of course, the tanks are filled with a minimum 200bar/3000psi pressure, if not, just return the tank and get a new one! The water temperature ranges from 26C/80F in January to 29C/84F in August.

You can customize your dive package from a x-numbers of dives to unlimited diving for multiple days. Do you not have your own dive equipment? No problem, you can rent everything you need from us!

Do you have a specific critter on your bucket list? Or any special requests? Please let the dive team know so they can help you!

Our Bangka Boats

The boats we use at Magic Oceans are traditional Filipino boats known as ‘Bangka Boats’. They are long and narrow with bamboo outriggers to stabilize them in the ocean. This makes them very stable and a great platform to dive from.

We have three Bangkas in total, all with the same design, but they are slightly different in size. Magic Oceans 1 is the largest and can fit up to 16 divers on board plus the crew, then there is Magic Oceans 2 which can fit up to 8 divers and finally Magic Oceans 3 with space for 12 divers. Each Bangka has a crew of 2 and at least 1 Divemaster to make sure your journeys to and from the dive sites are as memorable as the dives themselves. We try not to exceed 4 divers on 1 dive master for the best diving experience!

Magic Oceans 1 & 3 come fully equipped with a dry area and an enclosed toilet. All three of the boats offer refreshments between dives such as tea, coffee, water and fresh local fruit. For those hardcore or budding photographers amongst you there are also freshwater rinse tanks onboard all three boats. The boats are handled by our experienced Captains and their crews – who are always on hand to assist you when kitting up, entering or exiting the water!
