Dive experience levels

The dive sites around Panglao are very accommodating for novice and experienced divers alike.

Don’t have deep/advanced certification? No problem, rarely more than a gentle current, lots to see in the shallows, generally great visibility and our very experienced guides will make sure your dives will be relaxed and always memorable in every good way.

Want a little more adventure? If you are Advanced level or above, our walls drop to 20-30m with interesting features and sea life down to the limits of recreational diving (40m). Dive the currents and deep sites at Doljo or Pamilacan or visit our Habagat wreck at 35m off the local reef.

Would you like an extended bottom time? We have 15L tanks available on request for a small fee to maximise your dive time.
