Accredited Divers in Dumaguete

Liquid Dumaguete - The heart of Liquid dive resort is The Lodge. Our PADI 5* IDC Dive shop, bar and family-style restaurant are all situated here in the middle of the resort overlooking our combined salt and fresh water swimming pool. The upper floor of The Lodge houses our restaurant and chill out area all with stunning views of our beach and surrounding islands.

Bongo Bongo Divers - Bongo Bongo Divers is a unique local home stay. We are placed next to the best dive/snorkel sites in Dauin. Dauin Marine Sanctuaries are one of the most successful in the Philippines. You are guaranteed to encounter sea turtles amongst hundreds of different reef fish & weird critters living off the coasts. The sites are just off the shore and are protected by buoys. These buoys serve as a guideline so that fisherman, fishing boats or any marine vessel can refrain from entering or endangering the marine life inhabiting Dauin’s coast. Diving in the area offers a totally different experience from the rest of the dive spots in the Philippines, with its brown volcanic sand, plus the amazing life of extreme and rare underwater species. These sites can cater any level of certification in diving because of its geographical location.

Scuba Ventures is a PADI certified Diving Shop and facility. This means that next to organizing fun dives we also offer a complete range of PADI scuba diving courses. We can introduce you to the wonderful underwater life with a PADI Discover scuba program but we can also teach you the basics if you are a first-timer. Dive Siquijor, dive Dauin, or dive APO Island with our expert instructors now!

Dumaguete Diving Site

SUMILON ISLANDThe first marine reserve in the Philippines, was once a fantastic dive site. Somehow its protected status became defunct, and it took no time at all for the dynamiteros, the gillnetters and the spearfishers to move in and wipe out years of patient conservation efforts.
LILOANAt this drift dive over a nominally sandy bottom, experienced divers will want to drop down to the sloping reef and investigate the large rocks and bommies that litter the seafloor.
TACOTThis underwater seamount often attracts large pelagics, usually has great visibility (more than 20m) and always has strong currents. The reef is surrounded by a fair selection of fish life (groupers, snappers, puffers, parrotfish, and angelfish, among others), and the corals are healthy and large as a consequence of the nutrient-filled currents.
CALONG CALONGA popular training site and reasonable snorkeling area, this large reef has some fair-sized corals sprouting from it, including table and basket corals and, of course, sea fans
APO ISLANDThe island now has a couple of dive resorts, and dive trips are mounted to Apo from all over the Visayas. Apo is best visited between December and May. Snorkeling is great over most of the fringing reef, which runs around the conically shaped island from 3m to around 25m before dropping off to the seafloor.
THE PIERThis dive is fascinating with the stands of the pier looming around you and covered in colourful soft corals. This dive site is a photographers and macro fanatics dream. As you swim in and around the pier schools of fish swim around you and the soft corals are full of small critters, juvenile clown frog fish, nudibranchs, flat worms, ghost pipefish, seahorses.
