Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience 51-100 dives
Where else diving Utah, California, Akumal Mexico, Cozumel, Philippines
Closest Airport Catalan Getting There there are two different ways to get to Boracay--Fly into the airport at Catalan right next to the island--they just expanded the runway to allow full size jets to land there now or fly into Kalibo and take a 90 minute transfer to Boracay--much cheaper to fly to Kalibo but that may be changing with bigger jets flying now to Catalan.

I went to the dive shop the night before and talked with them and arranged the refresher course for the next morning with one dive included--$70 us dollars. The shop is very small right on the beach--no pool for training--all training is conducted in the clear water right in front of the resort.
