Dives at our house reef, famously known as the Kontiki Reef is a daily thing for us. Hailed as the most convenient divesite in Mactan because you do not need to be on a boat, no time to beat, and the diving. is practically an all day and night attraction. This divesite offers a wall dive, school of sardines, and awesome macro subjects, but most of all, it doesn’t require long swims as what may be a turn-off for most divers when they hear of a “shore dive” kind of a diving. Pricing starts at 1,600/dive including the use of gear, a guide and facilities fee.
Looking to explore further? We have great sites, marine protected areas like Talima Marine Sanctuary, San Vicente, Hilutungan and Nalusuan. Boat may be privately chartered for a day to provide you and your buddies the exclusive trip that you prefer. We can organize a boat dive for you and your group.
If you are just looking to join trips, drop us a note. We do not organize trips often as we are focusing more on running courses but reach out to us so we can organize one and hopefully, we get others to join your dives.
If you are qualified to dive during the night, Kontiki is an awesome site for night dives. It offers varying shapes and sizes of decorator crabs, squids, cuttlefish, and the occassional sightings of blue ringed octopus!
Regardless of which package you choose, you will be guaranteed of the same level of service that our divemasters will provide and as expected.
