Comments [None]The resort has a good mix of wall diving and macro dives. The macro is at a site up Sogod Bay called Malitbog--real muck diving, from the shore. Saw a wunderpus there last time. They also do terrific macro dives from the Padre Burgos pier at night (with a tricky entry and exit though, but they help!)--the stargazers impressed me the most on those.

The walls are across the bay at Napantau, which is really superb, and off Limisawa island at the mouth of Sogod bay. Good visibility on these generally. Both these are a fair distance, about 40 minutes by boat--they generally need several divers for those trips. Most years they have whale shark dives across the bay, but last year they disappeared for some reason in January. I go back to this place every year, since I'm generally in that part of the world. Best to go after January though, spring is perhaps the best.
