Bohol, is world famous for being an every-diver’s dream, thanks its stunning location and the quality of its underwater offerings. That's why Spindrift Reefs takes direct action to help protect the unique environment. That starts with their resident Reef Gardeners project, where divers head down daily to maintain the local reefs in a natural non-invasive way and help broken corals recover. As a visitor, you're encouraged to join them and learn their techniques!
Spindrift Reefs takes reef recovery a step further by growing and managing their very own artificial reef, the Underwater Chocolate Hills. These are handmade using recycled materials and utilise a process called Electro Mineral Accretion (EMA) to promote growth. Helix-anchors are used as an environmentally friendly alternative. Additionally, Spindrift Reefs actively works with different partners on related environmental projects, while 20% of their earnings goes to the local community through the Government's Coastal Resource Program.
