A very beautiful place to dive, friendly service, the restaurant is delicious and the instructors awesome. Near to the port, so you have good connections to Batangas. With the tricycles you need only 10 minutes to Sabang or White Beach.

I took two PADI adventure dives with Gavin in January 2013 and had a terrific time. In addition to my navigation and underwater photography adventure dives, I also brought two of my employees for introductory dives. Like me, they had an incredible experience. Not only were the instructors and dives great, but I can say the same about every member... More

I went for a weeks diving and I must say the service was second to none. We had an excellent experienced diving instructor named Gavin Jnr who brought to some great dive spots. The owners Gavin and Sean were happy to help with anything throughout the week! Thanks for a great holiday.
