A better dive center, dive team and dive boats would be hard to find. Atmosphere’s dive services consistently rank very high on Tripadvisor. We are proud to offer a personalized service for our guests whilst at the same time having the capacity to welcome big groups of divers. Despite welcoming groups with up to 50 divers, we keep dive groups small with no more than 4 divers per Divemaster – to make sure divers get the personal attention and get to see the critters they deserve.
In the the heart of the resort lies Atmosphere’s state of the art PADI 5* Instructor Development dive center. We offer a full range of PADI courses from beginner to professional training, specialty courses and underwater photo workshops.
As a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Dive Resort we understand the need for space in our wet facilities but also the growing demand for technological requirements. With this in mind, guests enjoy private dive equipment storage spaces, wireless internet, complimentary nitrox for all PADI nitrox-certified guests, a camera/video room with private work space for each diver, a retail boutique, full equipment rental and a spacious briefing area. Our large (20 x 9 meters) infinity pool is divided into a shallow and deep area (3 meters) which makes it ideal for scuba courses, the ocean with our spectacular house reef is then just a step away.
Atmosphere’s dive team, boat crew and dive support crew makes the biggest difference to your dive holiday. The dive staff comprises of Atmosphere’s Dive Center Manager, our resident PADI Course Director, as well as an experienced team of more than 10 multilingual PADI Instructors and Dive Masters. Our team can guide and teach in English, German, French, Finnish, Swedish, Tagalog, Mandarin, Spanish and Swiss, from Discovery Scuba Dives up to PADI Instructor level. Our experienced PADI Dive Masters will find you the rarest critters imaginable without harming the marine life, and keep you safe at the same time.
We offer private guiding as one of our services and we also have a diving marine biologist who will be happy to dive with you during your holiday. Diving children are very welcome and we make sure to keep groups small – marine life classes for kids, as well as all diving courses are also available. Contact us in advance or inquire in the dive center upon your arrival.
Atmosphere has two main purpose made dive boats. Victoria is a beautiful 84 foot long, local banka boat with the traditional bamboo outriggers. Victoria is used mainly for longer trips or day trips to outlying islands such as Apo Island, Siquijor and Sumilon. Eve is a 30 foot long speedboat and she can take you to one of the Dauin marine sanctuaries all within 15 minutes of the resort. For shorter trips, we use Eve or one of the smaller banka boats.
Fresh fruits, drinks and face towels are standard and if you desire your own private dive guide or boat, it can easily be arranged.
