There is now a 3rd PADI dive resort operating in Leyte. Padre Burgos Castle Resort has recently gained PADI accreditation and offers guided scuba diving excursions for very small groups with a maximum of just 4 divers. Their ‘Luxury Dive Packages’ are great value and include 2 guided scuba dives per day, unlimited shore diving on their house reef and deluxe room accommodation with breakfast.
Guests without diving certifications can try the Discover Scuba dive and a full range of PADI courses from Open Water to Dive Master are available.
PBCR continues to offer wonderful full-day trips to swim with whale sharks, snorkeling tours and what is certainly the best dolphin watching in the Philippines all set in the beautiful and non-touristic environment of Southern Leyte. Other great activities include sailing, island hopping, caving, hiking to waterfalls and interacting with wild monkeys.
