DanJuGan Sanctuary Dive Galore

DANJUGAN Dive Galore

 

Danjugan is a 43-hectare tropical island with three scenic lagoons, fringing reefs, white sand beaches, and few tourists to share this island with. It is located in Cauayan, Negros Occidental. There are daily flights from Manila to Bacolod City, the gateway to Occidental Negros.

 

Scuba diving and snorkeling are great activities in the area. It was declared as the best-managed reef in 2001. Much research and protection has been done in the area for more than 15 years that most of the coral reefs now have 100 percent live coral cover. There is a good chance to encounter impressive marine species such as manta rays, turtles, and napoleon wrasses.

 

Danjugan is a protected area and conscious efforts to protect the natural environment of the island and its surrounding waters have made the site managers decide to minimize the entry and stay of people into the island. Thus, only 24 people can stay for a night in the area using real ecolodges*

For non-divers, the island is also a great place to commune with nature. Laze in any of the empty beaches or kayak in scenic lagoons while watching a pair of resident sea eagles soaring in the sky.

 

You can also have the island exclusively for yourself or share it with up to nine of your friends. Your own island sanctuary.

 

For the youth and student groups, there’s a module for marine and ecology camp where the participants will stay for several days learning various ecological concepts and environmental awareness. Learn to identify plants, birds, fishes and corals and their roles in the environment.

 

*Ecolodges are accommodation facilities that blend with nature and do not require high energy. There are no airconditioners and electricity is supplied by solar energy
