We are first and foremost Divers. But we climb mountains, we swim with whalesharks, we go white water rafting too! Anilao is our diving home but we have been here, there and everywhere. From the canyons of Puerto Galera to the wrecks of Coron, the underwater wonders of Dumaguete, the walls of Tubbataha and the corners of Palau! If it’s a place to dive, we will find it.

We take pride in our safe diving practices under the guidance of our dive instructor Dave E. Santos who has certified over a thousand divers to date.

If you are not a scuba diver yet and thinking of becoming one, why not be one of us and discover not only the many wonders of the sea but the unparalleled camaraderie that the Diveshoppe family share.

Through this blog we aim:

  • to spread the love for SCUBA Diving
  • to share our experiences as divers
  • to preserve the memories of the Diveshoppe family
  • to promote our businesses, diving related or not
  • to communicate with each other online
  • to meet more friends and extend the Diveshoppe family
  • to share our safe diving practices and other important information
  • to promote environmental awareness

    These people are in Vietnam and offer quality offers, reasonable selling prices, superb service and also dive sites. All trainers are European and a colleague of mine was already there and was truly comfortable!

  61. Penis enlargement. Very interesting method http://uvelichenie.info/

  62. Penis enlargement. Very interesting method – jelqing http://uvelichenie.info/ . Jelqing is a physical-therapy technique, intended to achieve “natural penis enlargement” by increasing blood pressure and circulation. It is performed by repeatedly stroking the penis in a squeezing motion from the base of the shaft to the corona of the glans; devices have also been created to achieve this same effect. The motion may be described as “milking”.
