One Ocean Diving
Our dive center is located at the north end of Sugar Beach in Sipalay. One Ocean Diving was established in May 2018 when we took over former Scuba Planet Philippines from Juan and Selina, who were running the dive center since 2013. It is our hope to continue their great work and provide you with the same amazing diving expriences.
The dive center is partly renovated. It has a small and cozy classroom and a nice equipment area. The dive center has ten full sets of rental equipment. We are using properly serviced Aqualung BCs and wetsuits, Apex regulators, Mares and Cressi masks and fins. In the heart of the business we are using two Coltri compressors and thirty 12 liters aluminum tanks which are newly hydrostatically and visually tested.
We are operating with two 14 mt. of local designed Bankas (boats), La Nao and Gaia. Each boat is suitable for six divers at a time. We have oxygen tank, first aid kit and emergency plans always ready on board. On all our diving excursions fresh water, coffee, fruits and snacks are complementary.
The team consists of eight people. Diving operations are running by one Instructor, one Dive Master and one local Dive Guide trainee. The boats are operated by two captains and two boat boys. We also have one assistant manager in the office and one maid helping us to keep the dive center clean and tidy for you.
