These guys were not afraid to take you on a wild drift dive, even at night,
but they were always nearby to make sure you were okay.

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.
