    Dear members.

    In October/November I come for 6 weeks to the Philippines and also four weeks to Dumaguete.
    When I am in Dum I like to go for one week to Camiguin for diving.
    Does someone over here has experiances with traveling form Dum to Camiguin and a good resort on that island with also a diving base.

    And what can I expect on that island and what is a must to see over there.

    Thank you in advance for your information

    Greetings J.Diver

    Hi J.

    The only place I was, were the action Gekkos, but the austrian divsshop manager is not there anymore and it goes a bit downhill...

    at the end it did not matter as I skipped the diving after 3 dives... would not recommend it as a dive-highlight in the philippines.

    The Island by itself is wonderful. I would recommend you going to Cebu, get a Tour-Guide and take a cabin in the night-ferry to CdO . From there w/ a catameran directly to the Island.

    hope it helps for now.

    cheers

    Rhoody

    Thanks Rhoody.

    I also like to go around the island and if 4 days is enough I go back to Dum .
    It depends if I like to stay longer on the Island.

    Resorts on Camiguin:

    Secret Cove Beach Resort - Closed July and August (2009), but will be open before your trip in October.

    Camiguin Cottages

    Camiguin Highland Resort

    Diveshop on Camiguin:

    Johnny's Dive Shop - Three locations on Camiguin Island.

    The island is pear shaped and about 64 kilometers around its perimeter. You can rent a motorcycle from Secret Cove, and possibly other places to, of whiich I am not aware, to ride around the island, if you wish.

    There are hot and soda springs. It's quite a nice island to visit. I go there fairly often and have a great time when I do.

    If you are much of a drinking person, you will appreciate no bar better than the one at Secret Cove: More than you will want to drink.

    If you go to CDO from Dumaguete, you can then take a bus or taxi east, to a small town called Balingoan (1 to 1.5 hours away). From Balingoan Pier, you can take a Super Shuttle Ferry across to Camiguin, which will moor at Benoni Wharf. From there, you can hop on a jeepney to your destination.

    If you wish to download some maps of Camiguin and/or Mindanao, please feel free to view them here: Philippines Provincial Maps

    If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me by PM through this forum. I will be happy to help answer any questions you may have.

    Hey Diver, I had forgotten that I posted some photos in my gallery, on my forums. Here is a set of images from a trip I took, I believe early this year, to Camiguin: Camiguin/Mindanao Fotos

    action geckos is under new german management.

    4 days is for me way too few for camiguin.
    i went there for a week and stayed for 4 weeks.
    spectacular diving. saw more than once eagle rays and once a manta. big school of mamsa, ... .

    dont forget the fabulous pizza at "la luna"
