The Dolphin House dive site can be adapted to snorkeling and to divers that have a good command of their buoyancy because… it’s drift diving baby!
Contrary to its name, there are absolutely no dolphins to see on this dive site. However, you will see multicolored corals, caves, canyons, and, if you are really observant, many sleeping turtles and teeny tiny pygmy seahorses that measure only 3mm. This is also a super opportunity to see a real Divemaster in action!
Dolphin House is located a short distance from the shoreline on the west coast of Cebu Island and dived from Moalboal by taking a short (10 minute) boat ride to the north.
As with most diving off the coast of Moalboal this site is a deep wall dive however, despite the name, we didn’t see any dolphins on our dives here. Perhaps the reef would be more aptly named if it were known as “Turtle Reef” as we saw several here, both free-swimming and eating in the upper reef.
Again current is a consideration here but due to the nature of Filipino diving in this area (separate boat drop and pick-ups) can be used for great drift diving.
Once down the deep walls vertical drop we simply drifted along with the current, ascending throughout the dive back to the top slope, where antheas, fusiliers, tang and a multitude of other small fish life densely covered the plateaus hard corals.
