In April 2014, I enjoyed my vacation at the diving center Dive Spot Asia. The diving center is located in the middle of the hotel Ocean Bay Beach Resort. We - a group of divers - booked our rooms directly at the diving center. Owner and managing director of Dive Spot Asia is the German Gerhard Gehlen. The diving is very well organized. The entire staff is friendly and totally oriented towards the individual interests of the diving guests. Dive Spot Asia uses a completely new diving boat - very comfortable for divers. The “Higala” is a fast boat, lying stable and calm in the water. Day trips to Panglao, Balicasag, Sumilon and Cabilao were particularly varied. I liked, too the diversity of the dive sites offshore with only few minutes of boat trip. The assistance by the entire staff - bot...
One of the best and safest dive centers I've ever been. There is no compromises with the security procedures, which is very rare our days! Chris and Maria are amazing, I enjoied very much discussing and diving with them. Hope to see you again soon :) Magnificent area and dive sites close to the dive center. Captain Jhon Wreck is very beautiful spot.
I stayed there for 18 days and had a great time. Very friendly staff. Great dive sides. During the 2 tank speed boot dives we always been the only dive boot at the dive side. 3 tank full day boot trips to Cabilao and Balicasac with the new banka. Don't miss to visit the house riff. Right here you can find turtels, mandarin fishes, devil scorpion fishes, pegasus as well as ghost pipe fishes and many many more.
I really looking forward to visit Gerhard and his team again.
See you next time Heike :-)
Sorgenfreies Tauchen in tollen Revieren, alle mit neuen Booten leicht zu erreichen. Und alles unter erfahrener , hektikfreier Leitung mit einer immer freundlichen und hilfsbereiter Mannschaft.
Wiederholung ein Muss !
I have been doing business with Capt. Pete for quite a while. I love this dive shop. Everyone that works there is so helpful. I have had my nephew, my wife and now my best friend take their open water certification with Pete and the gang and have been able to participate in their certification dives as an observer and unofficial photographer. The shop has everything you might need to shoot fish, from cameras to spear guns. Dive trips from Crystal River to the USS Mohawk. Capt. Pete's Diving Outfitters is the place to go.
The Konanda (not Konandra) is an inter island trader purpose- sunk for diving in the last few years, a couple of hundred meters behind Ifira island.
It has little growth on it but is a good are k for swim throughs, and at a max of 25m you get plenty time on it.
Good for photography, and via usually 15-20m.
Regular trips by Big Blue and Nautilus dive shops.
We, a group of divers from Augsburg were in February 2014 for three fantastic weeks in the Dive Spot Asia . The base is run by Gerhard Gehlen and his wife Amay . The service on this basis is simply unbeatable. I have not experienced anything like this . Gerhard reads from eyes everything - When diving in the excursions ashore , introduction to local conditions of Dalaguete and transfer to and from Cebu by 1 clock at night. The dive guids are very experienced , attentive and know all about . Nevertheless, one has to request all the freedoms you as an experienced diver likes to have . The dive sites are varied ( Cabilao , Panglao , Balicasag , ..) and the house reef also has much to offer. In the reef especially the mandarin fish are to be mentioned (see image ).
The Ocean Bay Beach Resor...
I bought some diving stuff in their shop and unfortunately did not paid attention to the price tags. When I came home and removed them it soon became clear that they do not comply with the bill: 30% difference paid on top.
Some phone calls later I had two different excuses on "how that could happen." Enlightenment was promised to me, but of course nothing has been done. Maybe the management can explain here with a third version. - So be it.
Luckily it was not too much, what have been tricked out of me and I will definitely avoid this place in the future.
Who still wants to leave money here better follows my conclusion: Only with your own calculator.
Very varied dive areas , many of them fast to reach with new boats. Familiar atmosphere with a expert Operator , fiendly staff and Senior employees. A must to repeat

Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
