    Hi there,
    My boyfriend and I want to try some diving in the Phillippines in April/May 2007. We have never scuba dived before, so we are going to do an open water dive course when we get there, but we would like some advice as to which are the best dive spots for beginners? We will have over 2 months in the Phillippines, so we dont mind travelling to dive spots that are far apart. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Also, if anyone could recommend a good company for our open-water dive course, that would be great too! Thank you VERY much for your time and I look forward to your reply!

    HI skyblue,

    lucky you... over 2 month in the philippines sound good. I come up to 5 years now and still love this country. I work here as a diving instrutor and there are many fantastic places around the country to learn diving. The dive education is very different. Even most of them are PADI centers there are big differences, like everywhere in the world. some you pay and get the card, some you get a great education, which may cost some dollars more.
    I can tell you that Dumaguete is agreat spot to learn diving. we have a fantastic housereef and nt many places in the world can show you seahorses, Frogfishes and bluespotted Stingrays on your first dive... hehe... Usually the visibility and currents are good and moderate for beginners ere and the divesites are choosen wisely. You also can go to Apo Island on a Daytrip and finish the open-water trainings dives there. Just drop me a line if you need more information.
    cheers
