Scuba diving on any holiday is one of the most incredible ways to experience a country in a whole different way. This takes your holiday from being a relaxing getaway, to an incredible opportunity to discover something entirely new – an underwater world of incredible flora and fauna. Especially around Dauin, we have many marine sanctuaries with incredible marine life. And to mention Apo Island with all the turtles, stunning corals and so much reef fish, this is worth a trip, absolutely.
If you think that a holiday should be about creating memories that will last forever, scuba diving is one of the best ways to do that.
Sea Explorers provide diving opportunities in Dauin, a small coastal municipality 15 kilometers south of Dumaguete.
