About Us

Established by Josephine Loor (who is a native Ivatan) and her husband Douglas Rutherford, they are committed to Preserving Marine Life, The Natural Environment, and the Heritage of Batanes.

In 2006 they started looking for a special place close to the Ocean, and finally found the spot they are in today.

They wanted to create what was Josie’s dream, a welcoming "Home Feel” Lodge, and for Douglas, a Professional PADI Dive Shop/Resort in Batanes.

From the beginning, "We have always wanted to deliver an unparalleled Dive, Tour and Stay experience in Batanes.”

 A visit here should be a New Journey for our guests at the Lodge, Divers and Non Divers alike...we have something for everyone! 

Our series of Guided Diving, Free Diving and Snorkeling Tours offer you a unique experience in our Pristine Ocean Environment and Vast Coral Oceanscapes. Enjoy diving like never before! 

Here at Dive Batanes, not only do we want you to understand and practice safe diving, we passionately educate you on the benefits, procedures, and techniques of eco-friendly scuba diving and snorkeling. This way, together, we help preserve our marine life, the environment, and our heritage. 

Our lodge draws in the warmth of Friends and Families as we share our Home with open arms! 

We hope your heart desires to live the Dive Batanes Lodge experience in Basco Batanes!
