Frogfish, Philippines, Family DIve Vacations

The Sea Explorers dive guides are some of the best guides in the world, let alone the Philippines. “I don’t know how those guides see or find all those critters underwater.” Brad Holland said after two weeks in the Philippines with the Sea Explorers.

There are air-conditioned classrooms and three storerooms for guest’s equipment directly on the beach. Regular IDC (Instructor Development Courses) are being offered several times a year. Duain offers facilities and dive sites for all levels of experience. There are over 30 excellent and exciting dive sites that offer world-class macro and night dives – a paradise for underwater photographers. Apo Island, Masaplod Norte Sanctuary and Duain are also excellent for snorkelers. Most of the dive sites are as close as a short walk from the dive center to a maximum of 30 minutes by boat.
