Tech diving with Atmosphere in the Philippines

Looking for a new challenge? With Atmosphere, Technical diving is more accessible than you think. We love seeing our divers try new things and whether that’s doing the first dive ever on our house reef, becoming an instructor, or starting down the path towards technical diving. During your training, our focus is to personalize and schedule your course around you. We assure a much more personal and consultative approach. Some of you may want to dive deep and explore deep walls in Apo Island that nobody else gets to see, others are keen to try other equipment configurations and expand their knowledge or grab an underwater scooter (DPV). Whatever floats your boat, we can make it happen! At Atmosphere, we will deliver proper dive planning, briefing and detailed discussion, new and up-to-date rental gear, 5-star service with flexible dive options and lots of space on our boats.

Dive sites & tech fun dives - technical dives in Apo Island and along the Dauin coast

Even though tech training at Atmosphere always begins on the house reef, we have some great tech dive sites in the Dauin area, in particular in Apo Island. Apo island is characterized on one side by walls, explored by recreational divers down to 30 meters, and on the other side by drift dives and sometimes wild currents, big schools of jacks, colourful reefs and sea snakes galore. Below those walls, are deep walls and rock formations, stretching from 45 down to 80 meters at least. This makes it perfect for technical diving at all levels. You will see giant trevallies, snakes, eagle rays and marine life that you won´t see elsewhere. You will also be all alone, without the hustle and bustle of the shallower sites.

We also dive along the Dauin coast, and even though it is a sloping reef, there is always a lot to see. Sumilon Island is two hours away and has deep walls, a nice population of white tip reef sharks, Barracudas and occasional whale sharks.

Tech diving training with Atmosphere? Kevin Strahm decided to do his technical dive training with us in the Philippines. This is what happened!

We love teaching tech courses but we have some amazing dive sites for fun dives as well! Between 45 and 55 meters is where you find the big schools of giant trevallies in Apo Island. Watch this!
