About Atlantis Dumaguete Resort

Atlantis Dumaguete is located in Dauin on Negros Island, the third largest island in the Philippines. This island is believed to have once been part of the island of Mindanao, but was cut off either by continental drift or the rising waters at the end of the ice age.

Dauin has established several sanctuaries, and just one reason for the stunning marine biodiversity exhibited here within which fishing and boating is absolutely prohibited. This includes sites such as Mainit, Luca, Dauin and Masaplod. These sites are well preserved and offer a huge variety and quantity of life forms; Blue ringed octopus, Wonderpus, Mimic octopus, Poison ocellate octopus, Ambon scorpionfish, Flamboyant cuttlefish, Bobbit worms and a wide variety of Nudibranchs are frequent sights.

Day Trip to Oslob Whale sharks

Started as an innocent interaction between local fishermen and the Whale sharks, this snorkel trip has become world famous. Local shrimp fishermen use to clean their catch early in the morning offshore and the cull attracted Whale sharks. After developing a friendship, the fishermen would offer the Whale sharks a handful of shrimp. While the 150 some odd Whale sharks documented migrate around the Philippines, they tend to drop by in small groups so there are almost always six or seven at an average interaction. One of our most popular trips.
