    hi all,
    I’m going to moalboal early November
    It’s a short trip, only 2 diving days.
    I hope to make sure to reach Pescador and
    be in water before the crowd. (at least before 8:00)
    I have asked several op, first dive only 8:30 or 9:00.
    And I also hope to avoid factory style dive shop.
    Is there any recommendations?
    Thank you so much

    That was one of my problems in Moalboal; I didn't find anyone doing the morning dives like Savedra used to when it was properly german managed and focused to real divers.
    Now the Savedra factory is a certification mill and either starts at 9AM or even prefers to wait on a second dive for Pescador (which IMO is so silly!).
    I talked to Cameron in Cebu Centre as well but they'd start at 9AM too.
    Maybe you could try with Cebu fun divers, since they-re still one operation for more hardcore divers, run by the previous Savedra german manager. they're located on the southern part of Panagsama, lost in the pampa 400m or so after Quo Vadis.
    Good luck with overrun Moalboal, I think that destination has definitely sunk from its backpacker and korean invasion.
