Diving in Dauin, Philippines

Dauin just south of the city of Dumaguete on the island of Negros in central Visayas has become, and rightly so, one of the Philippines' most popular destinations for divers in recent years. Here is the world famous island of Apo Island and also the whale sharks In Oslob just north of southern Cebu has made the region known, but what is most famous here is the fantastic so-called muck diving. Large areas of sand and clay and indented here and there oases with corals and reefs and also some artificial reefs to increase the amount of fish and species richness. Here there are fishes of all possible sizes, colors and shapes, even hammerheads and threashersharks and reef sharks are sometimes seen, mainly out on Apo Island, but stingrays, eagle coats, mantas and other things are sometimes seen here.
The invertebrates, octopuses, nudibranchs, crustaceans and echinoderms dominate together with fungi, sea urchins and various corals or hives. The richness of the species is fantastic and all dive sites are relatively close so there are rarely long trips except to just Apo Island or Oslob. Diving is varied and different animals are more or less comfortable in different places, which is why one day is rarely the same, although at first glance it may seem like "Help what am I doing here". But with the help of experienced guides with accustomed eyes and knowledge of marine life you will be able to experience a lot of fun and exciting with a lot of strange animals that you may not even believe or knew existed.

Dauin is a real dive paradise and here you can actually go all year round as the weather is relatively stable and the area is very calm and quiet. For those of you who want to extend the journey either at the beginning or after Dauin, it is entirely possible and we will help you find good solutions for this.
