Philippines diving advice please

Hello! I am considering two back-to-back dive trips on the same boat for the first two weeks in February. I know nothing about the Philippines dive areas so have been reading everything I can find online. I would be thrilled to dive with mantas and whale sharks above all, but have learned to never hold my breath (haha) about encountering any particular pelagic. I’d like to hear advice/experience as regards the areas this boat will be traveling to, and thoughts about whether February is a good enough time to go, as the charts suggest that March is better. If March really would be a lot better, I can delay until next year.
Trip #1 goes to Malapascua and Leyte, and trip #2 goes to Visayas and Bohol.
Thanks in advance!
