Ok, ok... so diving is never cheap I meant cheaper. I try to ask resorts for a local rate, but I haven't had luck. I'm new to Dumaguete (3 months), and I would like to invite my friends to dive as well, but i'd like to go visit the sites first. I have my own gear (just need tanks/weights), AOW license with Rescue training, preferably with a group (share boat expenses and meet new buddies). Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
