“PADI Women Dive day” and our very own “Men’s Day” weekend was a blast. Thanks to all who came and participated in our celebration for a “healthy ocean – healthy body”. It was super fun with some interesting things to do and taste for everyone. Alli stated it up with a 6 a.m. loop walk, than Sabine got everyone doing yoga on the platform. The day continued with some diving, drinking some very yummy healthy drinks by Jamie, eating and just all hanging out together. Some went on to do the Hash Run as well…. It was a bit wet, but everyone enjoyed. Continue reading
We’ve had Paul Mongomery here with us for the past while and he passed along some amazing photos. They are a snap shot of some of the early pioneers and long term guests that frequented Sabang and LaLaguna beaches around 1983 to 85. We’ve added these photos along with some others that Alli took in the late 90’s on to our “Asia Divers Oldies” album on our Facebook Page. Have a look here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/asia.divers/photos/?tab=album&album_id=158818000907642
Super Umbrella in Sabang
Enjoying the nice weather and cold beer at the Barrel Bar! It’s been a busy time here this week as Kelly, Eleanor and Sabine have been in IDC land, while Maria has been teaching Sarah her OW course. Sarah is on her solo backpacking around Philippines and decided to take Open Water Diver course with Asia Divers. She has done great job as student and absolutely loved the experience. She’s also been brave to give the local delicacy, Balot a try. At the end of the day it’s nice to come together to either the Barrel or Point Bar and chat about all the great things going on and appreciate the fact that we’re all here. Make every day count!
PADI Womens Dive Day and more!
Come and join us for the weekend of July 21-22 to celebrate “PADI Women Dive day”! We’ll be making it a special “Healthy Ocean, Healthy Body” weekend with some fun things to do and taste as well. On Saturday there will be a Dive Against Debris, where we’ll get a chance to make our ocean healthy by cleaning up one of our local dive sites. All friends and family are invited to join of course…boys and girls! To make our body healthy we’ll also be offering a Yoga class by Sabine, our PADI Course Director, early morning walks and some great specials in our Spa. To top it all off we’ll have some yummy fresh fruit drinks available. Now to make even more interesting we’ll have a “Men’s Dive day” on Saturday just to keep things even. A Verde trip could be in the works along with, “Beer and Barrels” yoga! Please join us for a fun weekend by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
A nice moody shot of Pete at Alma Jane by Matt Hutchinson. Thinking of a couple of great specialty courses to get you to Alma Jane. Consider perhaps PADI Deep Diver, PADI Wreck Specialty and PADI Enriched Air. The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.

This month’s cover shot is by Matt Hutchinson. Matt came here to do his Divemaster course with us over the past few weeks and has been getting some superb photos of the area in his free time. Matt is a very talented photographer and now he’s starting to do underwater photography as well. You can follow him on Instagram @h2onomad
Congratulations to Matt Hutchinson for competing his PADI Divemaster course! The final test, the snorkel test was passed with flying colours so now he becomes part of our hall of fame. We’ve really enjoyed having Matt here and we’re sorry to see him leave. Matt got lots of real life experience during his Divemaster training at Asia Divers with students and divers and the being part of the team in the evenings at the Barrel Bar. Looking forward to seeing you back in September!
