Magic Oceans Dive Resort

On the fantastic green and quiet island of Bohol you can find Magic Oceans Dive Resort. We are located on the east coast, in the town of Anda, far away from the busy touristic areas.
The resort is on the seaside surrounded by a steep rocky wall, jungle and a tropical fruit nursery. The whole area is lush green, with of course a lot of palm trees, hibiscus, jasmine and other tropical flowers.
We offer you everything what you need to make your vacation at Magic Oceans the best: a relaxed massage; great cocktails and/or refreshing fresh fruit juices at the bar, the pool or beachfront; a big and fully equipped dive center; hidden relaxation areas at the seaside and a great restaurant with both local dishes and western style food.

Diving at Magic Oceans Dive Resort

The super-size dive centre can comfortably accommodate 35 divers, every diver gets his/her own spot with their name attached which they keep for their whole vacation. You can hang all your gear to dry and have a box for the smaller items. The floor of the dive centre is made of pebbles so it not at all slippery. In the wet area there are 3 showers and 5 large rinse tanks for all the dive gear and cameras. We also have a dedicated camera area with electricity, good light and airguns and we will have even more camera tables soon.
Anda has 16kms of diving pleasure to offer plus a sandbank, Lamanok Island and several diving day trips. The options include muck diving, walls covered with healthy corals, sandy slopes, small caves, mangroves and sandy bottoms full of life. The marine life varies from XXS to XXL, pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, schools of fish, a passing whale shark and even an occasional manta.
We have 12ltr/80ft³ aluminum tanks with both DIN and Int. connections, suitable for both air and Nitrox. Of course the tanks are filled with a minimum 200bar/3000psi pressure, if not, just return the tank and get a new one!

About us

Company details

Let us introduce ourselves first…
The management of Magic Resorts, Arie Hoogendoorn & Desiree Pullens welcome you to their home. Arie & Desiree opened the first resort of Magic Island in Moalboal, Cebu on January 2, 2005. Over the years, Magic Island became very successful and Arie & Desiree decided to open a second resort. A suitable dive site was carefully sought, land was purchased, construction plans were made and Magic Oceans opened its doors in Anda, Bohol on July 1, 2015.

Magic Island
Concheng is general manager of Magic Island. She is always ready to answer any questions you might have. She is assisted by Mayeth, the receptionist. Breakfast is served at half past seven by our wonderful morning team. However, if you’d like to sleep in or relax, they are always willing to prepare you a late breakfast. The same ladies of the morning team will clean the bungalow every day.
The restaurant provides a perfect lunch and dinner which is prepared by Ruth and Jake.
Our diving team, led by our own PADI Course Director Jamie, take care of the dive center. We have been working for many years with the same captains, boatmen and dive masters. Manuel has been working at Magic Island since the beginning and knows almost everything about the underwater life around Moalboal. If there is anything you would like to know do not hesitate to ask him. Then of course we have the evening team. Would you like a delicious cocktail? Choose from the long list of drinks with or without alcohol. Chino, who runs the bar with Chuna, is a master in mixing cocktails! Our driver Toting will pick you up from the airport and make sure you’re back in time for your return trip. Behind the scenes, the facility team takes care of the resort maintenance and the beautiful gardens are maintained by Mario, who also looks after the pool. Our team is happy to serve you and to make sure that you’re (diving) holiday will be one of a kind!

Magic Oceans
Magic Oceans Dive Resort in Anda, Bohol, is the second resort of Magic Resorts Philippines and is headed by Eef. Together with Arie & Desiree, he has built and developed the company. His team consists of 40 staff members, including Evelyn at the front desk, Peter as the Dive Center Manager and Jessica, who’s supporting Peter and doing a great job with marketing and relations. Magic Oceans has three boats run by our experienced Captains Romel, Melchor and Romi, with our Dive Masters Larry, Lee-Ann, Roel and Valiant also in the team. The diving area in Anda offers a lot of diversity and our professional diving team is very knowledgeable on the area. The morning team is led by Dina and they take care of breakfast and the house-keeping. The most important thing about a resort is, of course, the restaurant and the kitchen. The evening team headed by Ruby with our cooks Errol, Darwin and Camilla make the most delicious dishes. Every evening is enjoyable. In good weather, dinner is served on the terrace right on the water. If you fancy another cocktail or drink after dinner at the bar Esther is there to arrange it right away. Delio our driver drives daily to the airport or ferry port to transport our guests to and from the resort. Furthermore, the maintenance staff and gardeners are busy to keep everything in the right order. Despite of the fact that Magic Oceans opened its doors only 3 years ago, our teams work so well together that you’ll think they have been doing this for ages already!
