June 2022. We, three of us divers from San Diego, CA, USA, made 41 dives in 17 diving-days with Marco Vincent Resort, White Beach, Puerto Galera, in a 19 days stay. Our purpose is in underwater photography.

Diving: We used the 85 foot Big Bertha fiberglass outrigger boat through the days of 8am-4pm for 3 dives per day. I used all Nitrox, averaging 4 hours in water daily, 60-90 minutes dives, depth to 80 feet. Except for Verde Island dives, we emphasized om macros photos and had a great time shooting small marine lifes such as the mimic octopus, wunderpus, Ambon scorpionfish, Flamboyant cuttlefish, Pygmy Seahorse, Sheep Nudibranch, etc.

On the boat, there is the shower, coffee and snack, drinking water, freshly prepared sit-down lunch with soup, salad, main course and fruits from an excellent chef, diving with two experienced dive guides who know underwater photography, ginger tea and hot tower after each dive, electric outlets for battery recharging, 2 camera tubs, air hose for camera drying, and a toilet. Diving equipment and some camera equipment were kept on the boat for the nights. After the diving day, all dive equipment was washed and hung to dry. The crew and boat engineer are excellent in repairing whatever needed. They do have one chase boat which we never needed.

Hotel: Large swimming pool, outdoor showers, dining room, bar, no pests of flies, ants, etc., fast and free Wifi.

All meals were served in an air conditioned dining room either a la carte or on daily menu, which we preferred, with soup, salad, main dishes and wonderful desserts such as banana flame, etc. - see list attached. My breakfast is usually oatmeal with honey and greek yogurt with a big plate of fruits, eg. papaya, banana, apple and mango, Batangas coffee and Kalamansit-cucumber juice.

Hotel Room: We chose to have individual rooms, which have everything I need including the TV. electric Bug zapper, good and quiet air conditioner, hot shower, bath tub, toilet with bidet, toilet amenities, hair blower, drinking water, small frig, extension electric cords, fast wifi, and daily room service.

On checkout, we were individually given a dive log showing our every dive with dive locations, depth, time and names of dive guides! – This is not common in my over 60 years of diving!!! Can’t wait to come back!!!

Room tip: Rooms on the street side have some traffic noise but not very bad.

My sister and I with our two friends were given a royal pampering at the Marco Vincent Dive Resort when they toured us in their Big Boat around Puerta Galera coastline from Sabang to White Beach last March 13, 2022.

There was so much fun aboard the boat when we were enjoying the music and dancing as we moved around. The captain had many great stories to tell about the different sites from both the historical perspective and also the unwritten storiws that make it even more.memorable.

The buffet lunch was so delicious like home cooked food levelled up many times higher. The staff were all so gracious in answering our questions as though they were our buddy mates for a long time now.

What makes this leisure tour more meaningful was the underwater clean-up led by the divers at Sabang Bay. That is such a noble act because it shows you that Marco Vincent is concerned about the sustainability of the ecosystem of their business operations. Most others would not think of the repercussions of a poorly maintained environment.

WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO MEL & MERCY, the owners, for providing us with this luxurious experience and demonstrating to all the values that go with responsible tourism.

Mabuhay and Bravo!

We recently stayed at the Marco Vincent Resort during a dive trip set up by Seattle Scuba. There were a total of 15 people in our group.

From day one, the entire staff memorized all of our names and all of our food allergies and preferences. They really went above and beyond and made each of us feel special.

Marco Vincent is absolutely incredible from the staff to the rooms/food/dive boat/accommodations. The staff made our trip truly unforgettable. We all formed such a genuine bond with each member of the team. When we look back on the memories, all of them include the Marco Vincent crew.

We were there during Typhoon Kimura. Throughout this event, the staff made sure that their customer service didn't sway in the least by providing excellent food, beverages and even threw a party to take our minds off the event.

Room tip: great location, excellent staff, amazing diving

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Marco Vincent on a dive vacation with a group organized by Seattle Scuba. I cannot day enough good things about the accommodations, food, beach proximity, diving and most of all - the staff. They make you feel like family and in fact, they fed and kept everyone safe through a late season typhoon!! Riza, Nathan, Jessica, Faith, Jeff, Abbey, Ghen, Arlene, Christian, Robert and of course the dive team (Marlon, Sherwin, Calvin, Coco and the entire boat crew), were wonderful!
