Padre Burgos Castle Resort is a dive resort, accredited both by PADI and by the Philippine Commission on Sports Scuba Diving, running professionally guided scuba dives with excellent dive facilities for very small groups of just 2 to 4 divers of all levels of experience. The dive centre, which is conveniently situated at the beach right next to the boarding point for the dive boat, is equipped with large rinse tanks, and spacious drying, storage and changing areas. A Coltri dive compressor, new in 2015, ensures rapid refilling of tanks and is maintained in top condition with frequent changing of filters to ensure excellent quality, clean air in every tank.
A 41 foot traditional Philippine banca dive boat, powered by a smooth and quiet diesel engine, departs from our beautiful private beach to take divers and snorkelers to all the wonderful dive sites around Sogod Bay. The boat is subject to regular and rigorous maintenance, and carries an emergency oxygen supply and first aid equipment.
Good quality rental equipment is available including Aqualung BCD's and wetsuits, and Apeks regulators, as well as masks, fins and snorkels, all maintained in excellent condition. The Luxfer aluminium tanks fit both DIN and yoke regulator connectors without the need for cumbersome adapters.
