Baliacasag Island | Bohol | Infinite Blue Dive Travel

Dive Bohol

The diving around Bohol is considered some of the best in the Philippines, with Balicasag island being one of the crown jewels. Now with the new international airport on Panglao Island, it’s even easier, quicker, and cheaper to get there than ever.

How to get there

There are many international flights into Cebu or Manila, and domestic ones, mainly from Manila. Bohol is easily reached by boat from many other islands, with four fast ferry companies plying the route between Cebu and Tagbilaran.


The Bohol Sea sits on the island’s eastern side and has a depth of over 2000 meters, with nutrient-rich waters supplied by currents running through from the Pacific Ocean. For this reason, there is rich coral life on the reefs and frequent encounters with Whale sharks. Whale and Dolphin encounters are common as you head to or from dive sites on one of  Alona Divers’ big bangka boats.

The Best Locally Owned Dive Shop in Bohol

Alona Divers is one of the longest-running dive shops in Bohol and has been locally owned since its inception. For their experience, warmth and service, Alona Divers gets our vote as Bohol’s best locally-owned dive shop.
