Diving in El Nido rocks! You could chill forever on those countless beaches. But you don't know what your missing: we visit around 20 dive sites for all experience levels. Shallow beach entries with sea-gras as well as the Dilumacad Tunnel (+50 logged dives). Surrounded by 45 islands the Coral Reefs in El Nido are full of life. We can't guarantee big fish - but we surely look out for it. Best chances for Whaleshark and Manta Ray:  December until May.


We come from Philippines, Germany, Taiwan, France, Slovakia, Colombia, Spain and who knows where from next? Some stay for a Season, others for good. Our most important team member: the one-and-only Dogmaster Bronson.  What we all got in common is our passion for the Ocean and the beauty of El Nido.
