Scandinavian Divers Inc. (Scandi Divers) is a resort centrally located on the beautiful tropical island Mindoro, about 150 kilometers ( 90 miles) - south of Manila in the Philippines, far from the noise and smog of the big cities. Our dive resort is right at the edge of the water on Big La Laguna, the most beautiful white sandy beach on Northern Mindoro (see picture to the right, which is the view from our resort). On the roof we have "Sky Bar & Restaurant"; a restaurant/bar with a world class view - easily the best in the entire area, also at night, where you can enjoy an unobstructed view of the sky, sea and mountains.On Mindoro we have within a 5-15 minute boat trip access to dozens of diving sites in an area that is recognized as one of the very best places to dive in all of the Philippines.
3 feet and below sharing bed with parents are free of charge.
Manila to Big La laguna Beach
"The easy way" is our VIP Express Transport Service: We will pick you up at the airport (or elsewhere in Manila) in an air-conditioned minivan, drive you to Batangas Harbor, and sail you directly to Big La laguna in a boat specifically for you - not one of the public ferries.
Manila to Big La laguna Beach: The not-so-easy way
There are daily bus routes between Manila and Batangas Harbor. The most convenient, and safe, of these is the SiKat combined bus and ferry service. The bus leaves daily at 8:00 AM (but you need to check in at 7:30) from the City State Tower on Mabini Street in Ermita (not far from Manila airport). This bus will take you directly to Batangas Harbor, and from there, further on down to Puerto Galera Harbor (only 10 minutes from Big Lalaguna by boat).
If you should find yourself in Batangas (having arrived there by some other means) there are several ferry routes that can take you either to Sabang Beach (10 minutes walk from Big Lalaguna) or to Puerto Galera (10 minutes from Big Lalaguna by boat). Guarded parking is available at the Batangas Pier.
After you have arrived in Puerto Galera or Sabang, take a smaller boat (banka) on to Big Lalaguna. Several of these boats are lined up in the small harbor in Puerto Galera, or along the beach in Sabang. You merely have to tell them where you want to go - just like a taxi. The trip takes about 10 minutes...
