At Atmosphere, we are fortunate to be situated alongside the warm waters of the Philippine Sea on the coast of Dauin, with its incredible variety of critter species – and just across from Apo Island with its world-famous coral reefs. There is no surprise that workshops and courses focusing on our incredible marine life and critters are in high demand at Atmosphere Resorts & Spa.
We have our own in-house marine biologist who dives with our guests. Marine life presentations are held several evenings per week giving guests an insight into the incredible critters of Dauin, the history of Apo Island and the problems our oceans are facing with plastic pollution (among other topics!).
We are keen to get to know our local turtles, and encourage guests to submit photos of the individuals they have encountered. Our marine biologist will search our database to check whether we have seen an individual before, if not, you’re free to name that turtle! Our images are also submitted to a much larger database hosted by LAMAVE, a local marine conservation charity.
Want to know more? For a small fee, our marine biologist will dive exclusively with you and share her passion and knowledge of the marine environment. Do your kids love the underwater world? We also offer programs for children!
