Location: Probably best to organise through one of the Manila based scuba diving clubs or centres. Can recommend Aquaventures who run Aquareef resort in Anilao. Anilao is about 2-3 hrs south of Manila, but the roads are not well signposted so best to go with someone or get detailed directions. Kiko's bus fleet offers daily trips there for P500 ($10) return - For reservations and more details, please call 831-9226 or 0917 846-7958!
The whole of Anilao is full of a number of resorts. The beaches are not great, but the diving is fun - mainly reef diving, although there are the occassional sunken wrecks. Prices are very cheap. Recently attended a coastal cleanup with all accomm, food and 4 dives over two days for a mere P3,000 ($55). Usual week- end rates are around P2,000 (Well for AquaReef at any rate)
