With Catan Divers

Catanduanes, a pearly island in the Pacific, is virtually untouched, unspoiled and unexplored. It has long strings of palm-fringed beaches backed by jungle-covered mountains and crowned with jewel-like islets. It offers a totally laid-back rural charm, a beautiful natural environment and plenty of easy action at a pace that’s always relaxed. For divers it’s the perfect opportunity to dive one of the few places left that hasn’t been dived at all, with many reefs yet to be explored.

Catanduanes, described as a ‘Diamond in the rough,’ has so many unexplored areas that you would never get tired of discovering new experiences, locations and views on this tropical eco island. What you will discover about the scuba diving is the joy of diving with no other divers around and hardly a sound from passing boats. True peace and tranquility on and under the seas is such a rare experience; truly how nature should be enjoyed.
