    hi mga bogs

    my cousin is going here on vacation sometime end of june but will be here for only a short time, actually attend ng wedding sa tagaytay and can only afford 3 extra days, he likes to try water sports, since we will be already in tagaytay anu maganda lugat na recomend nyo sa batangas area? preferably yung may snorkling since diving parang nde makaya 3 days eh since begginer kami.

    okay pa ba lago de oro? who has been there recently? or ano ma recomend nyo?

    thanks

    Look for Tierra del Fuego in Nasugbu,Batangas about an hour from Tagaytay,water is crystal clear and a lot of marine life, once you reach the town proper there are plenty of Guides along the road.Have a good time-----------Sweater

    Most dive resorts in Anilao also offer "intro dives" where you are literally hand-carried by dive masters as they take you on a dive with full scuba gear. Those are much better, and definitely more memorable than snorkeling.

    Ok nga sa Dive & Trek as mentioned by Allegra because they have their own enclosed area complete with giant clams. I also spotted a couple of pawikan the last time I dove there. They are only accessible by boat which may be good or bad depending on your preferences.

    Kung di ka naman nagmamadali, hintayin mo nalang towards the end of the year. Dun kasi madalas yung mga sale.

    Kung dati ka nang diver you'll just need a refresher course to orient you to the "new" equipment in use. Mas madali na ngayon kasi nasa dive computer na yung dive tables, tho mahirap naman umasa 100% sa electronic device.

    E kung NAUI ka pala no problem. I'm also NAUI, and can refer you to my instructor if you decide to take a refresher course. Actually Course Director siya so he'd probably know what to do with your ancient c-card.
