We at Dive Funatics believe in safety among the first consideration when conducting various dive programs. We further believe that a good training and a great dive insurance coverage from a reputable insurance organization is paramount to a diver’s enjoyment and peace of mind.

On October 10, we finalized our partnership with DiveAssure to include dive insurance coverages as part of our core offerings. This means that we highlight the importance of having 6,7250,00 Pesos worth of medical and rescue coverage for practically 372.00 Pesos/Month in every pre-dive briefing that we conduct.

While loss of life is a terrible thing to happen to a bread winner in the family, the expenses involved in the rescue and medical treatment for dive related activities is far more expensive to even imagine. This is why our choice of dive insurance provider plays a major role in solidifying our efforts to keep scuba diving safe, fun and enjoyable.

Dive Assure also offers other insurance coverage for travel and liveaboard riders. If you wish to know more about Dive Insurance and how we can help you, do not hesitate to contact us.

Team ZEROTHREETWO discovers scuba diving

Categories: Tags: , , , , ,

Two of the founders of ZeroThreeTwo, one of Cebu’s widely read and followed online magazine went Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) with Dive Funatics last Saturday, November 15, 2014. What is so memorable for us about this whole experience is that both of these guys were so natural and as equally enthusiastic about diving as we are. They are yet to be the best DSD participants we have had the opportunity to conduct the program with, most definitely the fastest to blaze through the basic skills demonstration required in PADI’s DSD program as if they have already done so before.

Usual tour around the familiar Kontiki House Reef site, we managed to feed a bunch of small variety of damselfish – the first to catch the bread. We also toured the wreck or remains of what used to be the power shovel of a crane. This is where Jake saw a couple of coral snakes stalking their prey at the upper part of a piece of heavy equipment now fully covered with live corals.

Over all, it was a bit crowded and noisy with other DSD programs being conducted mostly for Korean tourists. Our dive on the other hand was as smooth as silk without any difficulties and issues; with very slight current and decent visibility. We ended just about lunch time. We logged our dives and discussed some strategy to make our DSD program more accessible and more affordable to the working class Filipinos.

ZeroThreeTwo will be coming up with programs and activities with Dive Funatics being one of its partners in the next few weeks so do not miss this opportunity to try and experience diving for FREE. Visit their website, like their facebook page (if you haven’t already).

We look forward to our next fun dives with the cool people at ZeroThreeTwo.
