Comments Very well-run operation, with reps to assist travelers at Manila and Dumaguete airports. Up to 5 boat dives per day available. Exceptional muck diving at Negros Island, with a rich variety of small critters and Indo-Pacific reef fish. Hard-coral reef diving around Apo Island, and mixed hard-coral and muck diving at Siquijor Island; day trips to both included with standard 1-week dive package. Frogfish, sea horses, cuttlefish, large mantis shrimps, wide variety of nudibranchs seen on most dives. Twilight mandarinfish dives upon request. Optional excursion available to snorkel with whale sharks at southern end of Cebu Island, where whale shark encounters are virtually guaranteed (we swam with 3).
