“Commemorating two decades of diving and going back to where it all began.”

There is much to celebrate in Southern Leyte’s thriving diving industry as Günter and Alona Mosch, the founders of the province’s first dive resort, Southern Leyte Divers, are celebrating the 20th year since their first dive in Southern Leyte.

It started in May/June 1996 when Günter together with Wolfgang (Wolle) Horn, assisted by Dag Navarette, Rio and Roy Cahambing, Earl Lancour and Boat Captain Bobong plunged into an undiscovered dive site and found beautiful undamaged coral reef formations, fish and sea turtles. To say the least, neither of them could put into words the spectacle of Southern Leyte’s submarine environment.

Today that same place (which is constantly visited by international divers) is now known as Adrian's Cove, named after Günter and Alona’s eldest son Adrian who is now an enthusiastic Dive Master and Guide with his younger brother Demian.

The dive resort has a Dive Shop, Equipment Wet Area and friendly staff.

Like modern time pioneers, the Mosch family and the people behind Southern Leyte Divers are continuing to discover new beautiful dive sites in Southern Leyte, open for everyone who wishes to appreciate and rediscover the beauty themselves. So the Southern Leyte Divers takes pride in saying: “We discovered it for you”!(BY WOWIE REYES)
