Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions At first, we weren't able to dive our own profiles until the guides worked out we knew what we were doing. After that they were much more relaxed. We still needed to keep to a rough time limit (as the boats went out at specific times each day) - but we were able to push these times out to an hour +
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes

Comments I really enjoyed diving with Asia Divers.
For starters, they are the only operation on Sabang beach that have their own jetty, which made boarding and exiting the dive boats much easier than it would have been walking up the rocky shore.

They ran nitrox and also had a Tech Division (Trimix etc available to those looking to undertake some "Superman diving").

There was a great wet room set-up, where we were allocated our own storage ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
