Activities

TREKKING

An easy trail providing a spectacular view of the reef is a must. The Batangeño's in the area have kept the trees untouched so beautiful trees and foliage are seen through out the trekking route. Meeting the friendly villagers is also worth the trip.

COASTAL CLEAN UP

Help us clean the coastline. We consider each dive an opportunity to rid the ocean of plastic trash that harms marine life. Every year, we conduct Coastal Clean Ups and aim to do more when the monsoon winds and wave bring in trash that can removed to rescue our oceans.

REEF EXTENSION PROJECTS

We regularly deploy reef extensions and domes which is now a breeding ground for small fish and coral growth. The most populated are the reefs using recycled wine bottles where eels, shrimps and fish thrive. Other projects include a sunken boat and old steel pipes. Groups come to help deploy or sponsor artificial reef projects, something you may want to join or organize with us.

MARINE LIFE
IDENTIFICATION

A fun filled fish and marine life identification activity where adults and even kids can learn how to appreciate and protect marine life. It makes snorkelling, diving and even exploring more fun. A great activity for families, kids, and friends.
