hi there! you may want to try diver's network, they're good: www.philippines-scuba-diving.com

but don't buy equipment just yet.


quoting from another thread:

diving courses are divided into non-certification and certification courses.

non-certification courses require you to dive with an instructor every time, max depth @ 40ft.

certification courses, you only need a dive buddy: open water max depth @ 60ft, advance open about 100-120ft.

rates depend on the facility and if you're with a group or a special session. best group rates i know is discovery scuba at about 3500/person and up. open water is about 12,500 and up. non-inclusive of resort fees but inclusive of equipment rental.

PM me if you have other queries and will see if i could help you. summer is around the corner. there are a lot of group schedules for those who want to learn diving.

enjoy life. go dive.

bro Porn Star,

thanks.

it is both sad and selfish not to let other people learn or experience the great beauty that we see down there.

about your dive sked, kung day dive lang kayo and may1 or 2, baka we can join you. 2 lang kami ng dive buddy ko. what time do you usually meet-up and finish?

bro, pwede ka sumama sa amin. most of the time, we just do easy dives.
tapat lang ng resort, 2 shore entry dives. minsan, huwag lang na di makahinga mula sa tangke.
budget namin ng dive buddy ko, 1k each. akin ang transpo. not bad kung 1-2x a month di ba?

bro, ang ganda kaya sa ibaba esp dawn to early morning or night dives.
last dive namin, shore entry lang pero we've seen pawikan, eels and octopus.

enjoy life. go dive.

day trip lang kami bro.. usually weekends lang talaga kasi may ofc work pa yung iba. most likely if not saturday, sunday kami tutuloy. last time (3 guys lang kami) mga 4am kami umalis from san pedro laguna and natapos kami ng mga 10am.. kumain, nag kwentuhan and rested for a while and kwentuhan konti,, umalis kami ng resort ng 2pm, this time siguro pwede na mga 5am. magsama daw ako ng 'kakwentuhan' at dadagan ang baon. mga 4-5pm tayo uwi, depende sa sitwasyon.

bro, when you go with divers, pwede ka naman mag-snorkel. we snorkel sometimes during surface interval.

but let me tell you this: if you hope to try scuba at least once in this lifetime, you're dead wrong.
once you've been down there, you will always wanna be that near down there already your whole lifetime.

when i do my gym work-outs, yung mga nakita ko sa last dive ko ang nai-imagine ko.

enjoy life. go dive

for those who are interested in slightly used equipment, sorry for the delay. it took a while for my bro to answer my email.

anyway, he's email is as follows (these are all scubapro which he bought from dubai for his dec 2008 vacation):

"regulator set MK25/r395/r296 octo with 3hole console original price nyan e 40k ibenta mo ng 30k (1 month used-dec 2008), BCD t-sport (L)15k or t-one (S) 10K. benta mo na rin ung mga torch na yellow ang ilaw mga 5k (nasa 15k ang orig price nyan).

email mo na lang ung mga equipment na may nagtatanong, pepresyohan ko at para makapagdala din ako ng kapalit.

Thanks bro."

kindly just PM me if you're interested or have other inquiry. thanks.

advisory from pag-asa:

2 low pressure: 1 in catanduanes & another in mindoro. wait and see muna kami ni dive buddy.

pag hindi gumanda panahon by tomorrow, next week na lang resked ng dive.

kainis, 3-day weekend pa naman.
