Atlantis Dumaguete also offers Fluoro Night Dives, where using a special filtered blue light and a yellow mask visor you can see first-hand the magic of fluorescence.
The reefs around Atlantis Dumaguete are home to more than 3000 species of fish and 448 species of coral. Combine unbelievable muck-diving with pretty coral reefs and shoals of schooling fish. The largely intact underwater world around Negros attracts divers and snorkelers. The dive sites are accessible all year round, and good to excellent visibility with generally low to medium currents can be expected.
Highlights are the dive sites around Apo Island with intact coral formations and varied diving in shallow coral gardens and beautifully decorated walls. Interesting underwater landscapes with sea fans, soft corals and feather stars offer a home for many colourful nudibranchs, moray eels, frog fish, seahorses, clownfish and sea snakes. About 450 different species of hard and soft coral have been found here. Atmosphere travels to Apo almost daily even if there are only 2 divers on-board. The trip takes only 20-25 minutes and 3 dives are offered. In addition to Apo Island, the protected dive site of Masaplod offers an abundance of fish life.
