5* PADI Career Development Center

Negros is the second largest island in the Visayas region, known as a “muck” diving area with lots of sand and very rare critters. The island is surrounded by marine reserves and more than 30 exciting dive sites that offer world-class macro and night dives, including Apo Island — a 72-hectare volcanic island with unique rock formations, 650 documented species of fish and over 400 species of corals. In 2008, Sport Diver Magazine listed Apo Island as one of the top 100 diving spots in the world — and it still is!

The Sea Explorers Dive Center is located next-door, inside our partner resort Pura Vida. The dive center is directly on the beach. We have four excellently maintained dive boats waiting to bring divers to different dive sites and on exciting day trips. Each boat can carry 10-16 divers and is equipped with oxygen (O2) equipment, First Aid kit, spare dive equipment, toolbox, life jackets, VHF, mobile phones and emergency communication.
