small stuff

We have hosted trips to both of these resorts over the years and we keep coming back for all the right reasons: amazing underwater critters, great dive guides, tasty food, and nice accommodations.  It says a lot when people want to revisit the same resorts time and again and it also means that we have plenty of experience with travel in this region and can answer all your questions!

*We are currently aware of three things that could cause these rates to vary:

1.  There are three oceanfront units available at Dumaguete and if you choose one of those, your rate will be the higher one.

2.  Another potential variation could be caused if the domestic airfare from Manila to Dumaguete changes before we are ticketed.

3.  Finally, these rates are based on our group transferring together. If you arrive or depart at a time that causes you to need separate transfers from the rest of the group, your transfer rate may be higher.  We can discuss this more when you book!


Optional Extras:

  • Single occupancy at both resorts, add $805 to package total.
  • Verde Island day trip $98 from Puerto Galera
  • Whale shark snorkel trip, $113/pp
  • Nitrox is $174 for the week at Puerto Galera and $174 for the week at Dumaguete.  If you choose to dive nitrox, this can be added to your resort bill at each location.


Not Included:

A required tourist tax of approximately $3/pp will be added to your resort bill.

Required marine park fee of approcimately $138/pp will be added to your resort bill.

Massages, additional beverages, rental gear, souvenirs, etc.
