Additionally Moalboal offers very good outdoor adventure sport activities. Moalboal is also home to Savedra Dive Center, where we reside in.
- Scuba Diving in Malapascua: Famous for thresher sharks, white tip sharks, mantas and devil rays, hammerhead sharks if you are lucky, some nice wrecks, too. Malapascua is touted also as Cebu's version of Boaracay because of its powdery sand beaches.
- Scuba Diving in Mactan: Steep walls, famous Marigindon Cave for advanced divers, thresher sharks in Olango Island, decent coral coverage (thanks to several new established marine parks), lots of fish in several marine sanctuaries, drop off point for day trips and dive safaris to Cabilao Island, Alona Beach in Boho and Apo Island in Negros.
