I had a spectacular time diving with Chico and Dive Batanes!
I had only gotten certified recently, but Chico did a fantastic job of helping me out and making sure my dive was safe and enjoyable.
Dive Batanes is a wonderfully professional operation!
But most importantly, Batanes is probably the undiscovered gem of Philippine diving. The waters are crystal clear, and the underwater life is incredible! The waters around Batan Island are teeming with schools of fish, coral, and lots more!
I can’t wait to head back and dive with Dive Batanes again!
“A DIVE AFFAIR” DIVING IN BATANES WITH CHICO DOMINGO
“The coral formations and landscapes were unlike anything I’ve seen in all of my dive travel.”
“It was a mix of Siargao landscapes with Anilao corals and Tubbataha’s white sands.”
“Get your gear ready for the trip of a lifetime!”

By the way, diving in the Batanes is great
Chico is an excellent guide, and there are a lot of interesting rock and coral foundations.
Chico took us through some of the caves at the end of our last dive and that was pretty neat. I saw a giant blue/gray sea snake, a couple giant lobsters, some giant clams at least a meter by a meter in size, a moray eel with a cleaner shrimp in its mouth, two huge manta rays and a puffer fish. It was also very reasonable in price, substantially less than other dives I’ve done.
