Dauin - Dumaguete, Philippines

Learn to Dive (5 days / 4 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The Diving.
Once you have learned to dive… other divers will ask you where you did your course. Now, where there is water, you can dive. But, in some places, the diving is better than average, for various reasons! But DAUIN is better for a very SPECIFIC reason. It has a great mixture of healthy reef diving and weird funky macro diving. Macro diving, defines the little critters, the smaller fish, the strange bottom crawlers in the sand, and the shy animals hiding on the corals. These little crittes are often ridiculously pretty, but also quite hard to spot. Around Dauin, the sand on the reef banks is black, and a mecca for these little gems. So be prepared to go treasure hunting (spotting) for weird little animals, it is so cool once you figure out what to look for! But, besides macro diving, critter diving, muck diving (call it what you like) the diving around Dauin is really easy and jaw-dropping pretty. The reefs are in good condition and you will get to see most of the colourful fish that you would see in a picture perfect Aquarium!

Starting from the beach, your course will be easy, fun and slowly progressing. The bay is calm, the water clear and the instructor is highly professional. A perfect way to start your underwater adventure! 

After your course, step up your experience with some extra days of diving around the world famous Apo island. We highly recommend, that you reserve the extra nights of accommodation from home, this place is popular!

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!.
