Assuming you are inspired, the same dive master or dive instructor will arrange for open water experience in places such as Nasugbu, Anilao or Laiya - in Batangas province to the South - or even in Puerto Galera.

These scuba diving equipment suppliers maintain relationships with Manila-based dive masters and dive instructors. They will hook you up for scuba diving lessons that you can take over a period of days or a series of weekends and then you can venture farther afield under their guidance. In this way you can learn to scuba dive in swimming pools in Quezon City, Makati City and Parañaque City.

The nearest open water scuba diving location to Metro Manila is around Nasugbu town (Batangas); the most convenient and most interesting place for open water scuba diving expereince is at Anilao (Batangas), less than two hours south of Metro Manila by road.

Scuba Diving Equipment Rental In Manila
