Atlantis Dive Resort
Atlantis Resort Dumaguete -- Just a twenty minute drive from the local airport (following a 60-minute flight from Manila), on a long peaceful stretch of beach, lies the lush and luxurious Atlantis Dive Resort. Surrounded by an amazing tropical garden with some of the rarest plants to be found in the Philippines it is just a short trip to some of the most renowned dive sites in the Philippines - Apo Island, Siquijor Island, and the local Dauin Marine Sanctuaries.
Dumaguete's Diving -- The Philippines is as beautiful under water as it is stunning on land. The archipelago is home to more than 3000 species of fish and 450 species of coral, home to the most diverse marine life in the world. Dazzling coral gardens, dramatic walls, historical wrecks and among the best muck diving in the world, you will see critters you never knew existed. Following are a few of the best known dive sites of Dumaguete.
Apo Island -- Half an hour boat ride away is world famous Apo Island. A 72 hectare volcanic island, it has a "Marine Reserve" designation and is included in the Philippines' NIPA's LIST (Nationally Integrated Protected Areas). The waters around Apo Island are full of both soft and hard corals, schools of jacks and other marine fishes. Because of its exceptional marine life, the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago has chosen it to be their centerpiece attraction of an underwater eco-system. This island boasts 10 dive sites although it is possible to start at one site, ride the predictable currents and end at another. An Apo outing is planned as a whole day trip on a large, comfortable outrigger banca, with 2 dives in the morning and one afternoon dive, an on-board packed lunch, complimentary coffee, tea and towel.
Dauin Sanctuary -- The marked feature of this site is a reef full of hard corals sweeping down to about 25 meters. Staghorn, lettuce, cabbage corals all abound. Near the sandy area is an artificial reef made up of old tires which is full of cardinal and other juvenile fishes.
Masaplod Sanctuary -- A basketball court size area that is full of juvenile jacks, a turtle or two, rabbitfish, sweetlips, angelfishes and giant emperor fishes. Although the smallest of all the sanctuaries, it has 50 percent more target food fish species than Apo or Dauin. If you're into fish photography, this is the place to go to, as the residents go about their business, unmindful of visitors in their midst.
