Comments We had an enjoyable week of diving at Quo Vadis. We stayed in the Premier suite which directly overlooked the water with a private balcony. The room was large, clean and everything worked fine. The staff made sure there were plenty of towels throughout our stay.

The dive operation is first rate. John, the manager, runs an efficient operation and was friendly and always willing to help. When my wife developed some leaks in her SPG he swapped it out until a replacement hose could be brought in. Our (private) guide, Esmer, was great at finding photo subjects and always looked after us.

One suggestion for the dive operation is that the morning dives can be scheduled before 9 am. Often, we returned from the two tank dive trip with less than an hour to grab lunch and be ready for the 2:15 afternoon dive.

The restaurant and menu selections can use some improvement. Upgrades here would really make Quo Vadis a go to destination. Breakfast is made to order and good. I usually ate one of the sausages on the menu for lunch and pre-ordered it at breakfast to speed the turnaround to the afternoon dive.

Getting to Quo Vadis from Cebu's airport is a 3 to 3.5 hour van ride. It's not really that far but traffic is incredible especially in Cebu City itself and the major towns along the route.

I recommend giving Quo Vadis a try if you are going to dive in Moalboal.
