Dauin, Dumaguete is a remarkable diving destination for many reasons and should be one to get under your weight belt. Easy to get to, just a short flight from either Manila or Cebu or a fast ferry ride from Bohol.
The Dauin coastline offers world-class macro diving and fantastic wide-angle opportunities at Apo Island. Large stretches of the black sand Dauin coast are marine protected areas, and life is flourishing for it, not just the bigger fish but also the critters.
Famous for Frogfish, Dauin ranks as one of the top two macro locations in the Philippines alongside Anilao. Just a 50-minute boat ride away is Apo Island, the oldest marine protected sanctuary in the Philippines; this small island plays host to extremely vibrant coral life, fish and large numbers of sea turtles.
Atlantis Dive Resort, as does the excellent dive crew, has one of the longest-running histories in Dauin. This resort gets our nod as having one of the most experienced dive crews in the area.
Tucked away amongst tropical trees with the beach on its doorstep is Atlantis Dive Resort Dauin—one of the most successful and well-known treasures in the Dauin diving scene. With first-class amenities, competent staff, and rigorous safety standards, you will love diving here.
The dive shop offers a unique dive-when-you-wish approach, so you can jump on any of the five dive trips that head out during the day and one at night.
The resort is exceptionally well manicured with comfortable, large rooms and a high-end restaurant and bar. Vegan and vegetarian diets are catered for exceptionally well, and the resort is involved in several local livelihood projects. We highly recommend unlimited diving, full board packages here at Atlantis Dauin.
Dauin and the surrounding area is sprawling with fantastic dive sites, and by staying at Atlantis, you won’t miss the stunning house reef.
Ensure you also visit Car Wrecks, shallow and deep; Dauin Norte; Eldorado Reef, deep and shallow; Mainit, Masapold Norte, and Masaplod Sur. Heading to Apo Island, don’t miss the dive sites of Coconut Pt, Chapel, Marine Sanctuary and Cogon.
