Diving is a fantastic, peaceful hobby that affords you an unparalleled opportunity to explore the world beneath the waves. Choose dive into Borocay to learn new skills, make amazing memories and forge new friendships.
We will travel to the beautiful island of Boracay where students will undertake a PADI Certified Diving Qualification at a registered dive shop in partnership with Splash HK, a local diving company. Students will have a chance to challenge themselves to learn new skills as well as all the theory behind diving and safety when underwater. They will encounter a wide range of marine wildlife and will learn about marine conservation.
Students should be able to swim 200m freestyle to join this trip. Please note that if students have or have had any medical condition which may impact their ability to dive – particularly respiratory conditions such as asthma – they will need to obtain clearance from a suitable physician before the dive centre will permit them to dive.

• Any student who has or has had a medical condition which may potentially affect their ability to dive safely will be required to undergo a medical to ensure they are fit to dive safely. This will be screened for by the school but the responsibility for undergoing the medical will be the parents.
• Students under the age of 15 are not allowed to enter the Philippines unaccompanied by their parents unless they present a document obtained in advance from the Philippine Embassy called a ‘waiver of exclusion’ form. More information on obtaining this will follow but the responsibility for obtaining it will lie with the parents.
• Students of certain nationalities will require a Visa to enter the Philippines, again this will be the responsibility of the parents.
