There are most certainly some must see dive sites in the Philippines and many are clustered around Dumaguete. Most sites are accessible within a 10 minute boat ride but must see dives include Apo Island, Siquijor and the Dauin Marine parks... and these are just for starters. Around 30 dive sites are regularly dived and there is an option for every experience level. No matter if you are new to diving or have thousands of dives, the team are sure to be able to show you something completely new.

Divers have their very own custom built dive centre at Atlantis Duamguete. The classroom and pool are on site for any training needs. All levels of PADI and TDI courses can be completed here and you can even begin your career as a PADI pro. Kids too can join the fun with diving programmes starting for 5 year olds up!

All diving takes place from one of spacious and modern dive boats. As well as regular recreational and tek dives you can try you hand at some underwater communications or why not see the weird and wonderful world of fluo diving. There are walls to dive, vast schools of fish to admire and marvellous macro marine life to hunt out on a muck dive. Photography is particularly popular in this corner of the dive globe and the on site camera room is an outstanding support to the incredible subjects that wait underwater.
