Comments My dive buddy and I had decided we wanted to go to a couple different islands in the Visayas area of the Philippine Islands. We used the Sea Explorers Service as they offered resorts/dive shops in the areas we were interested in diving and they took care of all the transport arrangements for between islands/and resorts. This was probably a little bit more expensive overall (money well-spent tho'), but a lot easier and comfortable, plus we didn't have to figure out transport modes/time schedules, etc.. We were very pleased with how organized and easy our travel between resorts/island was thanks to Sea Explorers. All we had to do was let them know when we were arriving at the Cebu Airport and where/when we wanted to go and how long we wanted to stay (about a week at each of the three places.)
