7. Open water dive schedule, dive master allotment and queuing
Each Intro dive participant will be designated to his/her own dive master. The dive master will primarily be responsible for the guest a throughout the diving activity. It is the dive masters’ prerogative to decide on which direction to navigate the guest underwater. Factors that the dive master consider when navigating are as follows.
- Underwater Currents
- Surface waves/swells
- Water Visibility
- Boat Traffic
- Scientific researches
- Photography considerations
- Imminent danger
The Resort will provide the dive masters to the participants, however since there is a limited number of dive masters at the resort, queuing in batches is often used to manage the scheduling of the dive activity. A schedule and member list is defined prior to the dive but the schedule will not be final and will change with or without notice depending on the dive master’s availability. We understand that most participants would want to dive with his/her friend or friends thus changes may happen to consider this request. We on our part will try to have you dive with your group but it will not be a guarantee that we can always accommodate this request.
Pink Turtle does not have control over who or how many dive masters will be allotted to the group by the resort. For the reason that there are other guest availing of the resort’s dive services.
8. Basic Free Diving Skills Lessons
The Basic Free Diving Skills lessons are not a formal free diving course and will not be credited to any free diving certifications, should you wish to pursue this formal course. The Basic lessons are for additional skills learning in open water swimming. Safety is also part of the instructions to ensure safe and enjoyable snorkeling activities. The lesson is not to be used for professional competition purposes and is purely for recreational purposes. Free diving depth is only between 7 to 15 feet deep.
9. Free Underwater Pictures
Our package includes unlimited number of underwater and above water pictures of the participants. However, for some unforeseeable circumstances that any guest was not photographed, Pink turtle cannot be held responsible for the none delivery of the photo/photos of the involved guest.

10. Conditional Surcharges and other possible fees
10.1 Boat Fees
Our standard dive package is a shore entry dive. However certain severe weather conditions may not make it possible to conduct the dives from the resort’s own shoreline thus transfer to another site is needed. Additional logistics will incur certain cost (equipment, personnel and boat logistics). On such event the tour operator may charge an additional fee of 200 to 300 pesos to cover the additional cost. This surcharge will only apply if shore entry from the resort will not be possible. Otherwise the standard all-in package will prevail.
10.2 Van Fees for Exclusive tours
Additional van fee will be collected should your group, of less than 10, request for an exclusive tour for a specific date of your choice. The van sharing for 10 pax is 550 pesos. Thus if your group is less than 10 pax, the van fee for the un-booked slots will be divided on the number of confirmed participants.
10pax/ van – 6 booked guests = 4 vacant slots
4pax x 550/ van sharing pax = Php2,200
Php2,200 will be divided among the six participants for the day which will be Php367 each
Total Rate per pax is = Package Rate + 367 pesos
11. Gift Certificates and Discount Vouchers
GC’s and Discount vouchers are valid only 1 year after date of issuance. GC’s and Discount Vouchers should be confirmed at least a week before a scheduled dive tour with Pink Turtle Fun Dive Tours to see if slots are still available.GC’s and Discount Vouchers will not be honored if without a prior confirmation.
