Chose Mabuhay Dive Resort for its great dive center and dive boat. The dive center is one of the most spacious I've seen with all the necessary facilities that will make divers happy (places to store booties, hang wetsuits, clean cameras, showers etc.) Dive center is run by a German-Korean couple so it's popular with these 2 nationalities.

It's also a full service dive center so everything is taken care for you before and after every dive by its ever-helpful staff. I did not have to carry anything! The dive boat is big and comfy (not a bangka).

Dive groups are kept small and high safety standards are maintained. Requests are also fulfilled (we asked to see pgymy seahorse twice and we were not disappointed).

Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera housing so no underwater photos this time :-(

PG dive sites are easily accessible and near (everything is within 20 minutes). Though the variety here is not that great, its 2 strong points are :
- huge variety of moray eels can be found here (you'll see at least 1 on every dive)
- the cute pgymy seahorse (there is just 1 hard coral where this can be found. Ask the dive master!)
