"When I was a kid, I was amazed by the underwater documentaries of Jacques Cousteau. It's only later, after my first trip underwater at the age of 27, that I decided to become a dive professional. For a couple of years now, I've been working around South-East Asia, guiding and teaching SCUBA diving. I'm also a keen photographer, always hunting the amazing critters that the ocean offers me!" -- Colin Salmon


"Growing up in the Philippines I learned very early I had a passion and respect for the ocean. We have over 7000 Islands in the Philippines and some of the best diving in the world! Born in Dumaguete I am 3rd year student at Foundation University studying Hospitalty Management and love all watersports and captain my local volleyball team." -- Rodilyn Dicen

(June 15, 2015) This place was where I successfully got my Open Water Diver Certificate. My instructor, Neil Brandon, was very attentive, patient and gentle to me. He was willing to explain all my questions including the many words that sound strange to me (I'm Vietnamese). Because I was quite small, he helped carry my tank to the beach and when I dropped my weight bell unknowingly, he came back to look for it without being frustrated. I was also encouraged by all the people at the dive café, especially Simon - the owner. After the dives, we chilled out and talked about our dive experiences as well as other things. I really had a wonderful time there.

(June 16, 2015) It was the best of times at Dumaguete Divers with owner, Simon Speight and Neil Brandon (dive master, dive instructor). It's a small dive shop within Dauin Dive Cafe. Eat-all-you-can Friday BBQs at only P295! You get baby back ribs, English Bangers, European sausages, salads, etc. It's a weekly occassion for the community to gather and have a fun time over beer, food and friendly banters. I had a dive with Neil and my Vietnamese travel buddy at the El Dorado house reef. Neil showed us the vibrant marine life within that small reef system. The current made for an exciting dive. With Dumaguete Divers, it's fun, wholesome and professional..
