You've got no reason not to dive in Davao! This is the best dive center for first time divers! Talikud Island is blessed with colorful corals and school of fish.

I did my open water dive course here in 2013. The instructor was good and the diving was diverse and a lot of fun. This dive centre is one of the better ones in Davao. When in Davao again I would dive with them again.
