My wife and I made this trip for some rest and to do some scuba diving, a passion of mine. We took advantage of the soft opening promo and was not disappointed. The resort is brand spanking new. The resort design, facilities and staff are obviously deluxe. Large rooms, well appointed, luxurious linen, goose down pillows, large Samsung LED TV complete line up of cable stations. Fast, free Wifi is available everywhere. Oversized central A/C which you can set to freezing, which we found unnecessary as the climate here so much like Hawaii, a constant gentle cool breeze and the ceiling fan is quite adequate.
what really stands out for me is the hospitality of the staff. I feel like a star walking around as everyone is greeting me. I have noticed from an earlier visit to Bohol, the the people here are naturally hospitable, honest, good-natured and there is a certain tenderness in the way they talk. The hotel fails to mention that this province has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.
But my purpose is diving Balicasag. A premier dive destination. I have been here several years ago and found the dives boring with not much to see.
For a little over a hundred dollars, you are completely outfitted with brand new Aqualung gear, a local dive master will be your guide, a boat to bring you to the island of Balicasag which is about 30 minutes away. I saw 8 turtles on my first dive, a giant school of jacks, lots of healthy corals, in very clear 84 degree water. Saw 2 more turtles on the second dive, octopus, and another massive school of jacks. On the way back to tthe resort, our little boat was escorted by what seems to be hundreds of dolphins. I love taking pictures. you must see to appreciate. this trip was truly unforgettable.
