Great place to stay for your dive holiday. The dive set up is very good and the dive staff are very helpful. Diving was well organised and they looked after all your gear with plenty of room for everyone to set up and store gear. The dives were interesting and varied.

The resort is charming and extremely well kept. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The rooms are air conditioned and well set up. The restaurant served plentiful food buffet style, and the chef made a real effort to accommodate our vegetarian needs. The dive centre is very well organised and set up. Again the staff were excellent, knowledgeable about the sites and recognised everyone's kit and requirements very quickly. We had a fantastic trip and we're sad to leave.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of our room, the cleanliness and above all the thoroughly professional dive centre and our guide for the week Felix. The dives, especially the Sardines at Turtle Bay and the beautiful island of Pescador were nothing but spectacular. The dive centre was smoothly run by Sea Explorers, who are all around the Philippines and never let us down. The centre itself was very efficient with showers for every diver to wash their kit down after each dive - although the dive guides did not let us lift a finger during our whole stay - carrying my heavy underwater camera and cleaning our kit after each dive. Felix was a brilliant spotter of all kind of critters and particularly helpful and patient trying to get the best possible pose for my underwater photographs without irritating them.

We just came back from the photo trip to Kasai, Philippines with Duxy. We had a great time. The diving was excellent and Paul is very good at leading a photo group like this. The accommodation was very good and the dive operation well organised. No complaints at all. I recommend you organise future trips to Kasai. Please let us know if you do.

Frequently Asked Questions

Location

The Philippines is around 15-20 hours flight from the UK. Although composed of 7,107 islands (7,108 at low tide), with a total coastline longer than that of the USA, most of the population of the Philippines lives on just 11 islands. Most travellers will enter the Philippines through Manila (MNL) or Cebu (CEB) airports. The reefs are spectacular in the Philippines, with plenty of fish list buzzing around. Moalboal, Bohol and Puerto Galera are all super locations for reef divers. Snorkel with whalesharks in Oslob. Thresher sharks have made Malapascua famous whilst Sangat is wreck heaven. Love macro? Make a beeline for Anilao or Dumaguete. The selection of critters rivals anything you could find in Indonesia.

Weather and Climate

The dry season in the Philippines runs from December to April, making it a popular time for divers. May and November are transitional months with air temperatures climbing. June to September is the wet season, as the weather becomes stormier. The Philippines dive resorts are typically well sheltered from the worst, but you can expect to experience rain showers.

As standard, our holidays to Philippines are quoted with London departures. We are however able to book most major airlines.

If you would like to depart from a different UK airport (eg.

Diving in Cebu has to be one of hottest dive holidays in the Philippines. With luscious healthy reefs and little current, you descend down in clear water to explore the likes of the legendary Moalboal marine park. Lose yourself in the moment as you watch swirling sardines, barracuda, turtles at Pescador. And if you are really lucky, a passing whaleshark will cruise on by on the house reef. Here you can really escape from the crowds to an inviting blue sea. An exceptional location for photography, divers can spend hours underwater discovering new behaviours and those hard to find critters with great visibility. Excellent wall diving adds to the excitement. Let the warm blue waters of the Philippines entice you in to a diving holiday you will never forget.

The dive centre at the Kasai Village resort is conveniently located on site. Roll out of your room and straight into the action. All PADI courses are taught here from intro dives to divemaster. Each group is kept small so you have the instructor's complete attention. Not sure what course to do next? Then why not try the Specialty of the Month. Children are also welcome to join in all the fun. From the age of 8 kids can don their scuba gear for the first time and play underwater in a carefully controlled environment.

  • PADI intro - Divemaster courses
  • House reef
  • Boat diving with custom built dive boats
  • Flexible schedule
  • Poseidon Rebreather Centre
  • Small dive groups

The house reef is a must see with many of those hard to find critters just metres away from your room. The house reef opens at 06:00 in the morning. Grab your buddy and away you go onto a reef stuffed with nudibranch, mandarin fish and pygmy seahorses.. Guided dives are recommenced to help find those really small beasts. Want to take the boat and get further away? The dive team have mapped out the entire region with over 35 sites identified. There is something new everyday and never more than a 60 minute boat ride. Most sites are actually around 15 minutes from the resort. Each day the schedule is tailored to suit you and the boat departs with no more than 8 divers. Night dives are on offer every night on the house reef and about once a week from the boat. A diving holiday to the Kasai Village dive resort is anything but mundane!
