Accredited both by PADI and by the Philippine Commission on Sports Scuba Diving, Padre Burgos Castle Resort provides a fully equipped, in-house dive centre, highly experienced dive guides, a comfortable dive boat, and dive groups of a maximum of just 4 divers, thereby promising you the ultimate diving holiday in Southern Leyte.

Sogod Bay is famed for its pristine reefs and provides over 30 superb dive sites with marine life ranging from pygmy seahorses to whale sharks. There are walls, slopes, muck dives and a tremendous underwater pinnacle. Perhaps the jewel in the crown, and surely the finest wall dive in the Philippines, is Napantao, while another 'must do' dive is the night dive at the town pier. Whale sharks cruise the shallow waters from November through May, and a whale shark watching tour is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

For novices we offer Discover Scuba dives, which are a great way to get your first taste of scuba diving, and we run PADI diving courses, from Open Water to right up to Dive Master level, for people who wish to obtain a diving certification or improve their diving skills. If you are seeking additional adventures, many great activities await 'top-side'.
