Sea Dream Resorts

Dive Society Dauin – Exclusive diving experiences and sustainability

Dauin is known for its “muck diving” and rare animal species. It is a mecca for underwater photographers. Encounter the most unusual sea creatures on earth in the brown sandy areas along the coast. The colorful reefs of Dauin are not to be missed. Passing whale sharks, barracudas, turtles and schools of fish in the open water are also always a highlight. This friendly destination is perfect for a combination of excellent muck diving and the opportunity to experience the Filipino way of life.

  • 4 km south of Dauin
  • Macro Paradiese (Muck Diving)
  • right next to Apo Island, "the home of Turtles"
  • SSI Diamond Instructor Training Center
Dive Center  Dive Society Malapascua

Dive Society & Kokay’s Diving Shop Malapascua

Malapascua Island is considered to be one of the few places in the world where you can regularly see the endangered thresher sharks with almost 100% probability while diving. This is why the island at the northern end of Cebu in the Philippine Visayas has become a destination for diving tourists from all over the world. Malapascua is quite small, and you can take a leisurely stroll around the island in two to three hours. The main activities are swimming and diving. Despite the rapidly increasing number of dive centers and resorts, the island has not lost its charm.

  • lies off the northern part of the island of Cebu
  • this island is a "must-visit" on your list
  • the only place where you can dive with thresher sharks

Our guests are delighted

What they say about us

I felt really comfortable with you. The service and support were really great! Pretty much the best I’ve experienced so far.

Bernd Eisenhut

A diving center that I can only recommend. Well organized, incredibly friendly staff and safe diving is a top priority here. And the TG’s…, simply indescribable

Bea Huber

What more could you wish? Professional, very personal care with a great love of nature above and below the water. A very beautiful, well-kept house reef right in front of the door. Apo Island can be reached in 20 minutes. Ice-cold San Miguel Decobier…

Bob Schankin

When I blindly checked into the diving school on the recommendation of a friend, I was not disappointed on the spot, it was like “coming home” without ever having been there before.
For me as a photographer, in addition to the usual on-site facilities, competence and flexibility are particularly important. From the camera room with enough light and space to the super competent staff and tidy boats, fresh water basins where a fully set up camera fits in and the dive guides. The respectful treatment of the underwater world is important to me. It became a living reality. The incredible knowledge paired with the appropriate way of dealing with it inspired me. I wish you all the best and many guests. I know that everyone who has been there once will definitely want to go again.

Bernd Schreiber

As a Dive Center owner in Switzerland, I have high demands on the Diving Centers at my holiday destination. How will my diving equipment be handled? What about my photography equipment? What are the safety precautions on the boat? How are guests looked after? Yes, they take care of my material, everything is very good. Thanks to the membrane compressor I get 100% quality air/nitrox. The safety briefings on the boat exceed standards, which gives great confidence.

Every dive is an experience and the guides always find new animals. One might think that they bring the small sea creatures to the respective locations themselves. And very important, the guides respond to the guests and don’t just go through their program. That’s why diving with Dive Society Guides is like diving with friends.
I have already seen many diving schools around the world, with Werner and his team everything is just right. That’s why I always enjoy coming to Dauin.

Philipp Bachmann

I am passionate about photographing underwater. The diving area is top and exactly the right thing for it. From very small to very large you can find everything here. Very important to me, the diving center with its long-standing employees is very well managed and well organized.

andreas-meibaum
As an exclusive macro photographer, I have been to the best diving spots in the world. This clearly includes Negros. Dive Society in Dauin offers me a clean, well-run and responsive base. The staff is very friendly, motivated and competent. Here I can live out my dream of underwater photography. That’s why I always like to return.
