Comments Caters to a lot of Japanese divers, but all are welcome. Very efficient and professional operation. Dive staff has been in place for years and knows the area very well. Great value overall as dives are around $20 from a boat. Rental gear is 4-5 bucks per day, but I brought my own. Food is very good, but can be slow at times. That is typical of most places in The Philippines. Have never seen other Americans at this resort and wonder why. Resort advertises in Asia, but not USA. If you like walls and fast drift dives, even at night, go here. Just fly to Mactan International Airport get a van to drive you South to the resort. They can set it up for you. Better value than the nearby resorts in Dumeguete.
