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!
