If you are up to some adventure, you can hire just a regular taxi in Cebu City or at the airport. Usually there are cheaper but check if the taxi is ok and be prepared for some surprises which sometimes occur, like some bartering about the price, hidden costs and unplanned stop-overs.
If you are really adventurous, take a taxi (insist on meter) to the Southern Bus Terminal in Cebu City. The driver should take you to the LIBRANDO or CERES bus terminal; a bus to Moalboal leaves about every full hour (Filipino time). Chose a seat in the front next to the driver for some thrilling experiences. Once in Moalboal, take a tricycle to Panagsama Beach. In rare cases a tricycle driver might take you not to the resort or dive center you requested, because he gets a commission from another resort, so be persistent.
If you drive by yourself drive from Mactan through Cebu City to the south of Cebu, passing by the towns of Talisay, Naga, San Fernando until you reach the town Carcar. There is a big roundabout where you have to turn right into the beautiful mountains, crossing over to the west coast of Cebu. Here you pass by the towns of Barili, Dumanjug, Ronda and Alcantara before you reach Moalboal. In Moalboal turn right to Panagsama Beach. The intersection is right after a big school on your right side. On the left side are a couple of bakeries. Directly at the intersection is a big tree with several signboards from assorted beach resorts and dive centers, pointing towards Panagsama Beach. Drive straight until you hit the beach (4km) than turn left. After 50 Meters you will stop in front of our dive center.
If you are in Moalboal and for any reason you (or your taxi driver) have to ask for the way, ask specifically for PANAGSAMA BEACH, otherwise you might be send to another beach.
