Safety

We ask all our divers to bring a safety buoy with them. It is mandatory. The buoy must always be used when surfacing in open water.
Emergency equipment with oxygen and compound material is available in the Dive Center and on each of our boat. The crew is trained for emergencies. The closest deco chamber is in Cebu City. Attention – a transport takes, depending on traffic between 7 – 10 hours.
