    I'll be making a trip to Davao in January, and I was wondering if anyone has done any diving there. How does it compare to other area like Puerto Galera or Bohol? I don't think there are too many Western tourists there, since it is in Mindanao, so it's kinda hard to find info online. I should mention that I'm a photographer, so i'm mostly interested in seeing good critters.

    Thanks for the reply, Dennis. I saw your pics from Cabilao, and they're great. I'm hoping I get to see alot of the same stuff.

    Glad you liked them. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the diving in Davao.

    In general, I have been looking into a future trip to the PI.
    I love walls and reefs with gin clear water and a dive op that offers nitrox and gives it's customers long dive times.

    Any suggestions?
    There are those dives that make you question your sanity, if not the need to seek immediate counseling.

    Puerto Galera!! I dove through ACTION DIVERS on little lalaguna beach and had a great time! there great wall dives nearby at Verde Is. watch out for the Washing Machine! There wreck dives, deep dives great coral dives. I know they have Nitrox, since they have tech diving, also I have seen rebreathers .
    I hear that in Bohol, Panglao Is. most of the diving is wall dives. I haven't been there yet.
    Wreck diving is available in Coron. 14 major wrecks courtisy US Navy 1944.
    You can't go wrong diving in the Philippines

    Bohol is a nice place to dive. Bohol in general is a nice place to relax. very quiet. With cute and freaky Tasiers that have really long fingers and rotate thier head 180 degrees.
