Dumaguete, Philippines - Macro Madness - March 5-12 2011

The city of Dumaguete is a short 45 minute flight from Manila and the resort is located 20 minutes from the airport. The rooms are simple but spacious and have all the amenities you would want at a dive resort. The food at Toko's restaurant is nothing short of spectacular. Be prepared to eat some very tasty food, it is some of the best! The restaurant is located right on the beach and has an excellent bar if you want to take in the sunset while having a drink with friends or a cappuccino in the morning.

The majority of dive sites are a 3-5 minute boat ride from the resort and could be classified as muck diving with sandy bottoms at most of the sites and a few sites with artificial reefs. The house reef is available to dive all day and has excellent macro opportunities.

There are two nearby Islands that offer excellent wide angle opportunities, Siquijor and Apo Island are a short 45 minute boat ride from the resort and offer wall diving with an opportunity to see turtles and manta rays.
