Diving holidays to the Sangat Island Dive Resort

The organisation including transfers was spot on. The hotel was great for overnight stay. Sangat resort was excellent, beautiful with a small group of customers.

The diving was great with excellent guide. With the wreck depths of upto 40 metres we were on nitrox and I believe it is essential so worth identifying to future customers. Although not inexpensive, it was good value. Additionally traveling through Clark rather than Manila can only be heavily recommended. It was so much easier.

The holiday was a 10 and part of this was the communication with Marcelina Jesus. It felt like the trip was designed by what are wanted.
