Explore Monad Shoal, known as the “sunken island” by locals, just a quick 30-minute boat ride from Malapascua. Monad Shoal gained fame for its regular sightings of the elusive thresher shark, putting Malapascua on the diving map. It is currently one of the few places where you can reliably spot pelagic thresher sharks. The shoal’s top is approximately 12-14 meters deep, with walls and slopes descending to 30 meters and beyond. Here, you’ll encounter various marine creatures, including thresher sharks, tiger sharks, white-tip reef sharks, devil rays, eagle rays, and occasionally even whale sharks and giant manta rays. We suggest using Nitrox so you can enjoy longer ‘dives with a smile’. Get ready for an unforgettable adventure at Monad Shoal!
