Dauin - Dumaguete, Philippines

Advanced Course (4 days / 3 nights. Incl. 5 dives)

Advanced Course in Dauin
If you are in doubt of where to do your Advanced Open Water Course, you should look no further! We totally recommend Dauin as the place. The instructors are highly professional and very relaxed. The diving is easy but OH SO very special, and the overall atmosphere in this place, makes you want to stay forever and ever.

The Advanced Open Water course is very different from all the other courses. THIS course is all about gaining experience and confidence in the water. During the 5 dives, you will become more independent as a diver, gain more awareness of the environment and generally become more comfortable in the water. Your skills as a diver, will slowly be developed over 5 dives. By the end of this course, you will be certified to dive to a maximum of 30 meters, and have gained a lot more comfort and control in the water.

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.
