Malapascua after Super Typhoon Yolanda

  

Dear families, friends, former and future guests of Ocean Vida Resort and Sea Explorers Malapascua.

In the morning of November 8th, Malapascua took a direct hit from the super-typhoon Haiyan, the strongest typhoon ever measured in the recorded history. The typhoon left Malapascua almost completely devastated with more than 95% of all buildings totally destroyed or severely damaged.

Miraculously, from the feedback we have had from our staff, none of the Sea Explorers or Ocean Vida staff (and their families) sustained any fatal or severe injuries and all are currently safe. However most of them, if not all of them, lost everything. Their houses and all their belongings are gone.

The Ocean Vida restaurant and the reception are simply not there anymore and the roof of the sea view rooms is seriously damaged. Most of the Sea Explorers dive centre is okay, but for now only one of the boats can be saved, and the Talisin is completely lost.

It takes more than a storm to break the Filipino spirit and already on day 1 after the typhoon, everybody was in a positive mood and we are currently doing everything possible to bring the resort and the dive centre back to normal. Currently, there is still no electricity or mobile signal with the entire island. So, until further notice, neither Ocean Vida nor Sea Explorers Malapascua can accept any guests or customers.

We know that many of you want to help support the island and your friends there. For that we are very grateful, and Sea Explorers and Ocean Vida Resort have set up a donation-account from which the money will go directly to supporting the staff and help rebuild their homes.

We will of course keep you updated whenever possible, but please understand that the situation is very serious and our first priority is the well-being of the staff and their families.

We received lots of emails and we try our very best to reply but please bear with us that we are not able to handle everything in time as usual. Thank you very much for your kind consideration.
