Comments I had been to Atlantis Puerto Gallera twice. This was my first time to Dumaguete. The muck diving here was great, the group I traveled with didn't want to spend all their time on the muck, so about half the time we dove in coral areas. I much prefered the muck. The food was excellent as usual for Atlantis. Rooms were very nice.
The resort offers 5 dives a day, so all dives are one hour, with the dive interval spent back at the resort. On one day we went to Apo Island where the reef diving was also excellent.
I mentioned to the manager that I had been trying to get on their live aboard for a 12 day trip around the Island of Cebu for several years with no luck. About 4 days after we left he emailed me that he had 4 spots on that trip open in October. So I'll be going back and spending another week at the resort before the boat trip.
