Mikes’s Dauin Beach Family Resort

mikes-dauin-beach-family-resort-017Mike’s Dauin Beach Family Resort – Adventure Dive – Dumaguete Negros

The top place to stay for people with kids is Mike’s resort on the beach in Dauin. It’s only 15 kilometers from the hustle and bustle of downtown Dumaguete but it seems like a different world.

mikes-dauin-beach-family-resort-018Mike and Joan and the kids give the resort a vibe that is not found at most dive resorts. They eat at a long table with the guests and the location on the sea is perfect.

In the morning, Mike makes a run into town to pick up divers that are staying in Dumaguete. The resort also picks up their guests from the airport.

This is a small place with great service.

Visitors comments and reviews are welcome below.

mikes-dauin-beach-family-resort-019The amazing thing about Mike is that you can’t get away without getting entertained by yet another story about life in the Philippines.

mikes-dauin-beach-family-resort-007The dive boat story …

One choppy morning the crew woke up to find that the dive boat had gone missing. Whoa! What happened?

The theory was that the mooring line to the concrete block on the ocean floor had worn through and the boat was adrift. Some suspected that thieves had made off with the boat!

mikes-dauin-beach-family-resort-001The word was put out to all the fishermen to keep a sharp eye out for it. Lo and behold some fishermen found it 13 days later adrift near Tawi Tawi. That’s about 300 miles distant on the way to Borneo.

The boat had broken free of it’s mooring and drifted around the southern end of Negros and the entire island of Mindanao. Wow!
