We typically depart around 8:30 in the morning, with non-divers welcome to join and enjoy the beach. The two dives are usually at Drop-Off and South Slope, with the surface interval conducted on the boat. After the second dive, we gather at the cottages for lunch. The price for this version is currently 6500 PHP per diver and 1500 PHP per non-diver. We also offer a slightly cheaper variant that includes only the two dives without landing at the beach, priced at 5000 PHP per diver. Please note that the minimum number of divers for this trip is 4.
