Very nice place for diving, and wonderful white sands. It was a great experience. It takes about 2.5 hours from Sablayan. You need to pay an environmental fee to disembark. Check the real price to make sure it is not inflated by your travel agent.

Just got back from a long day trip to Apo Reef with Dugong Divers. Let’s start with the obvious negatives. Firstly, it seems to be a long trip wherever you’re starting point is. We set off from El Rio y El Mar resort on Busuanga...More

Tons of big fish including a mantha ray, great! We did a day trip only. A two-day trip wouöd be even better. Shop around for reasonable prices. We went with Gustav's off-season promo.
