Boboy Gigantone, Provincial Tourism Officer, announced a special program for Dive Certification was launched in Bulusan, Sorsogon, to instill environment awareness, responsibility, and skills improvement for divers, being explorers of the ocean.

“On their first day of the dive certification program, our soon-to-be certified divers have been refreshed about the importance of conservation and preservation of biodiversity,” tourism officer Gigantone said.

Divers must have the capability to contribute to protecting the ocean and ensure its protection by moderating human activity and knowing our limits.

“As this is the first dive training in Bicol, it is necessary to remind, not just our divers but everyone else, of these points because it’s the only way we can guarantee a flourishing dive tourism industry and provide a stable livelihood for the locals,” Gigantone said.
