About Dumaguete Divers
Diving is what we do best - especially within the rich waters of Apo Island and shoreline of Negros Oriental. "Mabuhay" is a Philippine greeting. It literally is the imperative form of "live", from the root word buhay (life). Dumaguete Divers provides a personalised service specialising in small groups and Adventure tours. SSI Instructor Training Center and PADI diving courses are offered as well as day trips and half day local dives. All travellers are welcome to enjoy our friendly club atmosphere at the Dauin Dive Cafe, next to our dive center, which offers great value meals and friendly service. Shadowed by low mountain ranges rising along the coast the province has plenty of activities to make your stay exciting and rewarding.
