I had to add this review to refute the previous reviewer who doubted that it is possible to get a full 5 dives in one day, as advertised. I've just come back from a week at Atlantis Puerto Galera, and that is exactly what I was able to do. Here are the figures from my dive log on the second day of my trip:
dive #1 9am 25 metres 53 minutes
dive #2 11am 17 metres 55 minutes
dive #3 2pm 17 metres 67 minutes
dive #4 4pm 15 metres 55 minutes
dive #5 6.30pm 17 metres 51 minutes.
All dives on air using an Oceanic Veo computer and accompanied by a dive master from the resort. Dive times include a 3 minute safety stop at 5 metres.
I was the only diver up for a night dive that day, but Kris was more than happy to accommodate me.
