Diving in Dauin and Dumaguete

Dauin and Dumaguete are two mainly muck diving sites with one of a kind black volcanic sand, sloping reefs, and coral gardens. Unique artificial structures are located along the coastline of Dauin, providing easy access to the top dive sites in this region. Critter life and muck diving are what characterize Dumaguete; however, this destination also has stunning reefs and passing pelagics, including barracuda, turtles, sea snakes, schooling snappers, and jacks. Here, you can expect to find flamboyant cuttlefish, frogfish, blue ring, Mototi and coconut octopus, seahorses, flasher wrasse, ghost pipefish, nudibranch, and soft coral crabs, among many other species.
