Our philosophy is to work with people not companies and in most cases we have visited the centre and have direct knowledge of their procedures and safety methods so training couldn?t be easier. We are all divers and have amassed thousands of dives in many locations enabling us to make some great suggestions for places you may not heard of that are just fantastic places to dive. Costa Te guise and play blanc are also popular among tourists. In the evening or when you are not diving there is plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Night diving at this site is very popular due to it being home to octopus, arrowhead crabs and globular anemone. Costa Vulcan is situated in the small historic beach town of Puerto Dec Carmen, a few metres from some jaw dropping underwater lava cave formations and colourful reefs. With Egypt diving offering shore diving in Dahab, wreck diving at the world famous Thistlegorm in Shari and diving with dolphins in Mara Adam, we are sure we will have the perfect itinerary for you.

Malapascua has made great efforts to protect its waters; it shows in the organisation and in the behaviour of the animals. Gato Island was another surprising dive spot, the sights here included a lot of soft corals, large boulder features, and some macro life I hadn?t expected. The furthest you can possibly be from the dive centre is about 45 seconds walk so it doesn?t take long before your wetsuit is being pulled on. Exotic Island Dive Resort are the oldest dive resort on the island and have extended its facilities in 2009 to include a spa, classrooms, new dive shop and equipment areas without noticeably changing its character becoming a fully grown PADI 5 Star IDC resort 5 paces from the beach.We headed up to a shallower area at 23m to continue the dive, another thresher shark came into view, much clearer, it certainly seemed brighter, the sun was rising and the clarity in the water was obvious, visibility was really good. The swim through was everything it promised with sharks patrolling as silhouettes in the blue as we swam through the cavern, having watched a circling white tip shark in a side cave we pushed on to take in the smaller creatures, nudibranch the like of which I?d not seen before, moray eels and banded sea snake through to a scorpion fish, not even bothering to hide itself sat as plain as day on a boulder. Ubang Bato is a macro dive, I?ve developed a bit of a habit with nudibranch, I think it?s because they sit still while you try and video them, or at least slug slow at moving. Not to be left out a moray eel, scorpion fish and some juvenile cat fish put in an appearance, despite poorer visibility this site provides plenty to see today, it can only be better when the water is even clearer.
