Dive Shop hop around Metro Manila

Makati City, San Juan

I’m the type of person who celebrates firsts, and the first time I went free diving and scuba diving will probably always be on top of my list of favorite “firsts” Another memorable thing for me would be the first time I started buying my own dive/scuba gear! I’m lucky (or as an inside joke between our circle, not so lucky! 😛) to have friends who have been in the diving industry for a long time - primarily because they are able to answer all my newbie diver related questions and give out the perfect recommendations, but also because they know where I could get personal gear, on discounted prices! One day, I went out with my dive buddy Janine and together we went on a dive hop around dive shops in Metro Manila! Here are the places we went to!
