Should I be an advanced dive?

Diving in Apo Reef is open to all Open Water Divers. An Advanced Open Water Diver Certification is a plus, since Apo Reef is a wall dive.  There are night dives and deep dives that your open water certification may not allow you to participate.

Diving into Coron Wrecks requires Advance Open Water Diver Certification as they are mostly deep.  You can of course explore the wrecks from surface if your certification does not allow you to participate.

Taking an AOW course during the trip is also possible.  We just need your confirmation early so we can acquire the instructor for you.  You can negotiate the rate with the instructor and pay directly.  It is usually PHP 20,000 without the discount.
