Sabang is a major diving destination with (literally) dozens of dive shops. With a dive shop every 10 meters, choosing between them can be difficult. I asked a long-time Sabang expat to give me a short list of dive shops to consider. After walking around...More

rong w
I am planning to have a dive vacation alone while I am stay in PG, because this is my first time to Philippine, and I only got little experience of diving. So if you please answer some of my questions, I will be very grateful 1. i will arrive in manila by flight, which land in airport terminal 3 on 12th DEC, 13:35,I noticed that you may provide a pickup service, so can you pick me up at the airport? And how much will it cost? May be I would also need you to take me to the airport when I check out as well. 2. I have acquired a scuba diving license issued by NUAI(which equal to open water of PADI),can I upgrade to AOW of PADI during my stay? 3. As I side, I am a fresh man In diving, and I am going there alone, I would like to have a fair idea of how the dive activities will be arranged. Looking forward to your reply, thank you!
