If you are looking for a dive center that has just that little extra, this is the place for you! In La Salangane Dive Center, we believe there is more to diving than the time you spend under water. That is why we want to make sure you enjoy your travel time on our spacious "banka" (local boat) as much as your time in the ocean. We keep dive groups small, offer healthy snacks and drinks in between the dives, customize the lunch to your needs and more. A lunch that you will enjoy on a tropical beach that is totally postcard material!! When it comes to diving courses, El Nido has it all! The amazing seascape offers perfect conditions for beginners as well as more challenging dive sites like a tunnel and deep underwater forests for those who like to improve their skills through continuing education. Our multilingual dive masters and instructors have years of experience in this area, making them experts in the local marine life.

Great dive shop, friendly, cost effective, good equipment. Sebastian and the crew were professional, and great. Lunch was a treat fresh fish! Saw my first turtle, schools of barracuda, yellow snapper. Totally awesome experience. And private- low season has the advantage no crowds.
