The boat creaw is nice, but the shop staff is terrible. The woman staff who is big and allogant is very rude. I never dive at this shop and never recommend anyone. You can find her and realize this suggestion when you visit here.

Pretty old equipment. Broken and leaky equipment, and the wetsuits are old as well. Pretty unorganized. Too many people in one van.

A big boat with a lot of people and sloppy logistics. However, it was cheap and the dive master who was our guide was nice. Pay attention to the gear that they will pack for you (check before the bus leaves) and you'll have a...More

We availed their snorkeling tour in Apo Island. It is probably the cheapest in Dumaguete, priced at P1200 - transpo, lunch, snorkeling mask and flippers included. I can't really complain about their food 'cause I didn't expect much because of the price. But if you...More

Hello, Werner. Maybe you should visit their office in Dumaguete and have your diving and snorkeling trip arranged there. Their jump off point is somewhere in Dauin. Maybe your accommodation is quite near so you can just... More

snorkling in Apo Island is good for a whole day... They ask you to come to the shop at 7am to prep for the snorkling gears in case you need them. From the shop you'll be traveling by car for about 45min before arriving Dauin... More
