Magic Oceans Dive Resort

The ideal location for a twin centre holiday with its sister resort the Magic Island Dive Resort in Moalboal.

Opening in July 2015, the Magic Oceans Dive Resort is located in Anda, on the east coast of the fantastic green and quiet island of Bohol in the Visayas region boasting one of the most amazing house reefs. If you have been on a diving holiday with Ultimate Diving to Moalboal and stayed at the Magic Island Dive Resort then you will know exactly what to expect of this sister resort. Great atmosphere and a friendly team are on the cards along with 16 spacious bungalows featuring luxurious bathrooms, an enormous pool and a welcoming restaurant serving delicious food and the opportunity to meet and socialise with other divers.

Anda is located on a small peninsula on the eastern tip of Bohol, 99 kilometres from Tagbilaran City. This part of the island has stretches of white beaches that have only just started to develop as a tourist destination which means it is still very untouched. With hardly any other divers around, Anda offers a fantastic variety of diving for all levels including pristine reefs and excellent walls, all in an exceptional good and healthy condition. Visibility in this area is great and quite often a resident whale shark can be found while diving as well as turtles and humpback parrotfish. Underwater photographers will love the diving here as the seabed is also home to seahorses and a lot of nudibranches.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Reviews from our Clients, Journalists, Photo Pro's and our own Experts

Our reviews and blogs are an additional guide to evaluate of the holiday is exactly what you are looking for or not. Some love an Eco-Resort, some love air-con and a flat screen TV, we aim to ensure you get what you are looking for, at great value for money.


We had a brilliant two weeks diving at Magic Oceans, the resort was intimate (a little like a liveaboard but on land) The accommodation was comfortable spacious and had all the facilities that we required. The diving was not particularly testing though on some dives there was some current, but there was lots to see, though sadly the whale shark seen on the house reef the day before we arrived didn’t return while we were there. All staff were friendly courteous and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure we had an enjoyable time whether that was diving, at the bar or in the dining room. The arrangements by Ultimate Diving were first rate as always with plenty of communication before we travelled to make sure everything as in order and even a last minute change of return flights was dealt with promptly professionally and communicated to as and the issue resolved to our satisfaction. We have already booked our next diving trip to the Maldives in September 2016, with them and are already making enquiries about a trip in early 2017. We cannot recommend Marcelina and Ultimate Diving highly enough, we are always more than happy to entrust them with our holiday arrangements.

Magic Oceans Dive Centre

Magic Oceans Dive Resort

Opening in July 2015, the Magic Oceans Dive Centre will be offering guests the best diving experience in the Anda area. Equipped with a specific camera area complete with air guns, good light and big cleaning basis, photographers will be well looked after.

The big size dive centre offers more than enough space for 32 divers in a way that every diver gets his/her own specious spot to hang and store their gear. Adapted to the wishes of the now-a-days diver there is a camera area where you can blow your camera dry, where you can safely change the set up with the bright light above and where you can charge all batteries needed. The specious Philippine wooden banca boats take you to more than 30 dive spots around Anda, where we let you dive in small groups of 4 to 5 divers per dive guide. Besides the Anda dive sites we also go to Camiguin Island for another 15 dive sites.

The diving in Anda offers a big variety of coral covered walls and sloops but also more than enough muck dive sites. For XXS (pygmy seahorse) to XXL (whale sharks encounters and big schools of big fish) can be seen, from amazing critters like blue ringed octopus to ordinary clownfish and turtles.

The big compressors put either nitrox or air into 12ltr aluminium tanks that have both Din and Int. connection. In the morning we bring 2 tanks for you and after the lunch at the resort we go out for another dive. Are you still not tired of diving then you can join us to watch the amazing mating dance of the mandarin fish or a festival of crabs and critters during a night dive.
