What am I?

what am i head

 

"What Am I" Was the title of a popular German quiz show in the 70s. But "What's that?" is one of the most frequently asked questions in our resort. The question of the origin of the logo of Camiguin Volcan Beach Eco Retreat & Dive Resort.

2011 05 2 058  2011 05 2 061

It is not the map of Camiguin, the face of an old man or any other abstract painting, but of course as a dive resort, a fish. Exactly a "Juvenile Platax Pinnatus" a cub of the Dusky Batfish.
The special thing about batfish is that the kittens look completely different from the adult fish. The young Platax Pinnatus is brown to black and surrounded by an orange hem. It is believed that this colour imitates a poisonous flatworm. Adult batfish have a more discus-like shape and are silver-gray with slightly dark gray vertical bands.

The decision for this logo was made after the very first dive in 2011, when Gabriel & Sabine wanted to test out what the future house reef will do.
At that time, they fought their way through the thicket of the still undeveloped terrain, all the way to the sea, with full diving gear. Immediately after the descent, they were greeted by the first batfish. The dive was a complete success and they were thrilled with the topography and biodiversity of the offshore reef.

Thus, the decision was made, here we build ours
"Camiguin Volcan Beach Eco Retreat & Dive Resort" and the logo became the juvenile Platax Pinnatus. Of course, batfish are still permanent inhabitants of our house reef, which has since been included in Camiguin's list of protected dive sites.

new boat 2016

 

On March 15, 2016 we launched our NEW  DIVE  BOAT!

.....it all started with a dream....


The dream of a proper dive boat without the typical outrigger, BUT very comfortable for relaxed DIVING, with easy entrance of the water and a robust leader to come out of it, based on a model of the Dive-boats “Flukkas” we operated during our many years in Egypt.

Thus combined with:

  • the power & knowledge of nearly everything,  from our good friend Dodong Sagrado, who was the foreman while building the resort before
  • his perfect place for boat building, directly on the beach, close to our resort
  • ready to use mahagony & acacia wood
  • the brothers Abello & Winston Dahang, who are excellent local boat builder in the 3rd generation already
  • Faustino Calamba, Santi Malaque & Juner Bangot, great painter & welder... all from Camiguin
  • Bomex a striking local artist, known for superb free hand lettering & drawing
  • and many helping hands of the fisher folk from Yumbing, who helped to launch our new dive boat

Thank you so much to everybody who made this dream comes true!
