Welcome to Padre Burgos Castle Resort


Scuba Diving in Sogod Bay, Southern Leyte, Philippines


Padre Burgos Castle Resort offers exclusive diving in small groups led by a very experienced local dive master. Mixed groups of just 2 to 4 divers, while private diving is available for groups of 4 people. Solo divers, larger groups, nitrox, and PADI courses from Discover Scuba to Dive Master are also catered for.

Sogod Bay in Southern Leyte is famed for its pristine reefs and provides over 25 superb dive sites with marine life ranging from pygmy seahorses to whale sharks. There are walls, slopes, muck dives and even a couple of wrecks. Perhaps the jewel in the crown, and surely the finest wall dive in the Philippines, is Napantao, while another 'must do' dive is the night dive at the town pier. Whale sharks cruise the shallow waters from November through May, and a whale shark watching tour is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Padre Burgos Castle Resort promises you luxurious accommodation, top class cuisine, fine wine, excellent service, a lovely swimming pool and a beautiful, peaceful private beach, so you can truly relax and enjoy all aspects of your diving holiday. If you are seeking additional adventures, many great activities await 'top-side'.
