    Nudibranch on wreck

    Very good diving. Thresher sharks, wrecks, small stuff.
    And around christmas you might get lucky and see a hammerhead shark.
    You should expect to pay approx. 20 USD per dive - depending on number of dives and whether or not you rent of equipment.

    Equipment: A computer would be a good idea for some of the dives. You stay down deep and long for wreck diving and thresher shark dives.

    Scuba diving - you've got to try it. That's the whole point of your trip. We had the fun dive costing p2500 whole day. We just want to try things out. It was addictive. We had an hour or so lecture, was measured for the gear's size and tried it on the sea - all in the morning. The afternoon activity was all dive. I don't know if they had a time limit of something, I surfaced because I was alread cold.

    Equipment: The diving shops there has complete gears, unless you're a pro who already has everything. You can bring your own mask if you feel icky about renting one.

    Great experience

    The diving inside the resort is just perfect!
    The dive-guides are very good and they'll make every dive very interesting and enjoyable!
    They have three boats: two are big and the third is a bit smaller, but all are very confortable.
    It is also very well organized. They offer you dives on almost every hour of the day: there're dive starting at 4.00 in the moring to go for threshers; at 8.30, at 9.00, at 10.00 at 11.00, at 12.30, at 13.30, 14.30, 15.30, 16.00, 17.30, but there're also a full'day trips to Gato's Islands for example, where you depart at 8.30-9.00 and return at 16.00. What more could you ask?
    The diving staff will load and unload your equipment on and from the boat and the only thing you have to do is rinse it in the appropriate basins at the diving shop. If you bring your own equipment it is also stored in a separate and locked room nearby during the night.
    The boat staff will help you in every way during your stay onboard: for instance I have trouble climbing on board after the dive with my euqipment on - well I would take it off in water and they would haul it up!
    The ladders are very easy to climb as they're not steep as on the other diving boats.

    Equipment: I'm sorry but we had our own complete equipment and therefore I do not now about renting theirs.
