Already a certified diver? Let us bring you out and go scuba diving in El Nido’s reefs and islands. Whether you like shallow dives, vertical walls, sandy flats, swim-throughs, drift dives or deep dives, we’ll find the right place for you.
Our well-trained guides have thousands of dives. With our captains, they’ll select dive sites based on where we’re likely to have the best conditions and the level of the divers on board. We try to ensure that you won’t be repeating dive sites during your stay (unless you want to, of course!).
Palawan Divers has two traditional boats made for diving. Irawadi IV is a 30 foot long speedboat and she can take you to one of the El Nido 40 dive sites all within 20 minutes. Irawadi I and II are two beautiful local banka boats with the traditional bamboo outriggers. They are used for our courses and fundive day trips.
Your safety and comfort are very important to us, so you can expect the focused, undivided attention of our staff. To make your day nice and cozy, we limit the number of divers to 8 per boat, with a maximum of 4 divers per Divemaster.
Time: 08:00 – 12:00
Irawadi IV, our 30 foot long speedboat, can take you to one of the El Nido 40 dive sites within 20 minutes.
Every morning we meet at 7:30 in the dive Centre. After being introduced to your dive master we leave with the speedboat at 8:00. It only takes us about 10 minutes to get to the first site. On arrival the dive masters provide a thorough briefing and check of the equipment. All dives are 60 minutes maximum.
Between the dives there’s a 1 hour surface interval which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the beauty of Bacuit bay while enjoying a drink and some fresh local fruits and snacks. After the second dive we get back to El Nido around 11:30-12:00.
It’s Php3,700 for 2 dives. Our dive packages include full dive gear, a dive guide, boat travel, hot and cold drinks and biscuits.
Time: 8:00 – 15:30pm
Days: Upon request
Level: Advanced or experienced divers
For those of you who want to be in the thick of the action before everyone wakes up, then join us for the sunrise dive!
Our 2 sunrise dives trip is designed to dive amid the incredibly wide variety of our Bacuit Bay’s marine life. Most of the fishes are hidden during the day. But when the sun rises, it’s like fireworks underwater as marine life scurry out of their homes and greet you “Good morning!”
During the boat trip, you can encounter turtles or dolphins bob up and down the water. Under the surface, you get more chances of saying ‘hello’ to amazing creatures like sharks, napoleon brass, schools of barracuda, eagle rays, and a lot more. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
Time: 8:00 – 15:30pm
The archipelago presents a beautiful collection of hard and soft corals that are home to hundreds of species of marine life. So, there’s always something for novices and veterans alike as we glide over the walls and reefs. Our 3 dives trip is designed for certified divers of all experience levels.
Every morning after the briefing, we head out to different sites in Bacuit Bay. All dives are 60 minutes maximum. During surface intervals, sit down with us, consult the fish book and we will help you identify what you saw. Or you can just enjoy the scenery while munching on some snacks. Or would you rather lay and relax on the deck of our large covered outrigger boats? Whichever you choose, we’ll make it worth your while.
