Explore the underwater attractions of El Nido in Palawan when you book this beginner scuba diving experience. This tour is perfect for those who want to try scuba diving but have little to no experience. You don’t need to worry about arranging everything yourself, as it already comes with the assistance of a Dive Master, the use of a tank and weight belt, lunch, and snacks. Children aged 10 above can also take part in this experience, but those under 13 need to secure the permission of their parent or guardian.

You need to meet with the Dive Master at Turtle Divers in El Nido on the day of your dive. Once you are there, the Dive Master will brief you about the activities for the day. You will learn the basics of scuba diving, like how to use the equipment, breathe underwater, and communicate with fellow divers. Since this is just a Discover dive, you will not get certification for completing this course. 

You can choose how many dives you will do. If you choose to dive into two sites, this will take you roughly 4 hours. Diving in three sites will take around 8 hours, so choose an option that fits your other scheduled activities for the day. 

You may also pick the diving spots. Some of your options are South Miniloc, Twin Rocks, West Entalula, Paglugaban Island, Popolkan Island, Helicopter Reef, Natnat Beach, and Address Reef. Please note that the availability of these dive sites also depends on the weather during your tour. 

After you are done with all of your dives, you will be brought back to the mainland so you can enjoy the rest of your time in El Nido on your own.

Immerse yourself into the underwater world of El Nido with this Discover scuba diving experience. Check the availability by choosing a date.
