Asia Divers have been showing people the underwater world on the Philippines for over 28 years now. They offer fantastic facilities, friendly service and some incredible dive sites for everyone from beginner to advanced divers. Their huge dive platform caters for multiple dive groups and has plenty of storage space for your gear.

Beneath the surface are spectacular reef formations with more than 300 species or corals and underwater rock canyons. Asia Divers is located on the shores of Verde Island Passage and one of the most amazing dives is the Verde drop-off, located only 20 minutes away from the resort. As well as this, one of the main draw cards of the area is the amazing macro life – see pygmy seahorses, ghost pipefish, frog fish, sea moths and more.

All the dive sites are replete with huge numbers of splendid fishes, huge basket sponges adorned with hundreds of multi-colored crinoids; vast numbers of hard and soft corals and gorgonian sea fans. Turtles, octopus, mantis shrimp, crabs, seahorses, and cuttlefish make guest appearances as well, and during the past few years in the colder months we have had thresher shark roaming the area. . There are also a few wrecks teaming with fish that have been sunk purposely to turn into dive sites. Dives here is suitable for all levels, from your 8-year old bubblemaker to recreational holiday divers, to serious photographers and even technical divers.
