Dauin - Dumaguete, Philippines

Fundiving Extended (6 days / 5 nights. Incl. 8 dives)

The diving
Okay, so we tend to get very enthusiastic about our dive destinations, but hands down, THIS one is topping on our list!
The diving around Dauin is a brilliant mixture of cool thriving reefs (like prober, FULL ON coral reefs, just like you have seen them on TV) and funky macro life. A perfect match! Most of the diving is done from the beach or close to the coast, where the current hardly exists. The diving in general, is suitable for all levels of divers, but especially highly recommendable for the geeky diver seeking rare macro sightings! The beginner, seeking easy diving and pretty reefs will love the turtles and the pretty patches of reef, but be aware! The area is very much about diving on the black volcanic sand, looking for the strange life that can be found in this kind of habitat. It is like a treasure hunt, where weird tiny marine life is the pretty gems. If you haven’t tried muck diving, THIS is the place to start!

And, if you also want to experience the full on coral reef and some bigger marine life, you can always get on a boat and head out to the world famous Apo Island and Sumilon island. (We have to say it again… the corals out there are pretty damn fine!).

If you want relaxed beach diving with rare and odd marine life, you should dive the coast of Dauin. If you want it all, dive both Dauin Coast and Apo Island and enjoy the wickedness of the Philippine waters

Location
Above water Dauin is a local town just South of Dumaguete City. Dumaguete City is placed in the middle of The Visayas and is the perfect travel hub to other famous dive destinations. Siquijor, Bohol, Moalboal, Malapascua or Sipalay is less than a days travel from Dumaguete, which makes it a perfect stop on your way around the Philippines…

The diversity of the coast is truly magnificent, and the underwater scenery is as pure as it gets. With the islands cultural attractions on land, the gentle people, dramatic landscape and amazing diving opportunities, it is a combination that is spot on.

Your resort
Is very different from the rest! It is one of those places where people end up staying for weeks or even months… not kidding! It is beautiful, full of flowers and very cozy! There is a relaxed atmosphere and a homey feeling that you will love, no doubt! Cook your own food in the common kitchen, take a nap in the hammock station, put on a DVD and crash in a bean bag or grab a tank and go diving just 50 meters from the gate on the coolest housereef in the Philippines!.

Your room
Double or private room with fan and shared bathrooms (but PRETTY shared bathrooms!). The rooms are all made local style, with bamboo, nipah and mahogany wood. There is mosquito nets available on request.
