Negros is the second largest island in the Visayas region, known as a “muck” diving area with lots of sand and very rare critters. The island is surrounded by marine reserves and more than 30 exciting dive sites that offer world-class macro and night dives, including Apo Island — a 72-hectare volcanic island with unique rock formations, 650 documented species of fish and over 400 species of corals. In 2008, Sport Diver Magazine listed Apo Island as one of the top 100 diving spots in the world — and it still is!
We offer a very well-equipped facility with our own office, small retail shop, air-conditioned classroom and three storerooms for our guest’s equipment directly on the beach. Regular IDC (Instructor Development Courses) are being offered several times the year. Dauin offers an excellent area for courses as well as for all levels of certified divers. There are about 30 excellent & exciting dive sites that offer world-class macro and night dives – a paradise for underwater photographers. There are several daytrips a week going Apo Island and Oslob where divers can make up to 3 dives during the trip. These sites are also excellent for snorkelers.
The dive center is located inside Pura Vida Beach & Dive Resort directly on the beach. It is equipped with O2 equipment, first aid kit, fish book library. Souvenirs and retail diving accessories are also available inside.
