Our philosophy - Dive Munda is very passionate about our ocean and environment and we are actively working towards protecting our reefs and helping preserve our fragile marine ecosystems. Some of our islands are the last frontiers of untouched and unspoilt beauty and needs to be protected. Every responsible traveler visiting gives strength to the theory of sustainable eco-tourism. We strongly believe in educating and developing our local communities and people. We employ a group of 12 local dive guides (all trained by us!) and continue to develop youth within our villages.
