Fun Diving


Salaya Beach Houses is ideally positioned along the Dumaguete coast to give our guests access to a huge variety of diving experiences. The shores of Dumaguete are world famous for muck diving. With over 15 dive sites, they provide divers with a wealth of the much-desired unusual macro critters. Natural and artificial reefs give divers the chance to spot schooling jacks and barracuda as well as a wealth of other wide-angle friendly sights.

Photography & Workshops

Critters such as the Ambon Scorpionfish and Mototi Octopus previously thought to have only been in Lembeh, are regularly being spotted. There has been an influx of divers visiting Dumaguete to photograph its diversely rich underwater subjects and seascapes.

We have world class facilities dedicated to photographers and an in-house Instructor who can take you through the Underwater Photography Course, and look after your photography needs. Whether you have a point-and-shoot or a Big-Rig we have you covered.

With a fully digital conference room, dedicated camera room with individual lockable workstation, we can comfortably accommodate photography workshops for 20 pax.
