Thanks for the review. Means a lot to us. I've been trying to get this listing closed though as this is for our old resort in Puerto Galera. It would be great if you could copy and paste your review to our new listing. Hopefully...More

Been there twice now and both times Jonathan and his team made my stay and especially the diving a fantastic experience... will definitely come back whenever I feel like fleeing Manila’s craziness... See you soon

Thanks a lot Matthias, was a pleasure having you here. Just wish TripAdvisor would close this listing down as it is confusing our guests.

I planned to stay there for 2 nights but eventually stayed 1 more night. Must go verde island, that is extreme beautiful, although there has strong current, you don't have to worry as the diving masters are very professional. Very good price.

I am planning to have a dive vacation alone while I am stay in PG, because this is my first time to Philippine, and I only got little experience of diving. So if you please answer some of my questions, I will be very grateful 1. i will arrive in manila by flight, which land in airport terminal 3 on 12th DEC, 13:35,I noticed that you may provide a pickup service, so can you pick me up at the airport? And how much will it cost? May be I would also need you to take me to the airport when I check out as well. 2. I have acquired a scuba diving license issued by NUAI(which equal to open water of PADI),can I upgrade to AOW of PADI during my stay? 3. As I side, I am a fresh man In diving, and I am going there alone, I would like to have a fair idea of how the dive activities will be arranged. Looking forward to your reply, thank you!
