Hi there, fins should be OK... the dive shop uses open heel fins which means your front part of your foot slips in and an adjustable rubber strap goes behind your ankle. The only problem might be booties... not sure if they have a big enough size of bootie (water shoe) for you. Might be safer to bring your own booties... they should be about 2 inches above the ankle, to provide protection from the rubber strap.
The dives are different every day. It is up to you what kind you would like to do. We have shallow reef dives, deeper reef dives, sunset and night dives, and deep dives. There are two deep dives with the sharks that you must have Advanced Open Water training or at least a Deep Adventure spec to do. Open Water divers are limited to 18M, but Advanced or Deep Adventure divers can dive to 30M. If you do not have this specialty, you can attain it here during one dive for a cost of around 3,500 php.
Rash guards are always good to bring, the sun here is very hot. You can also wear it during diving which is more comfortable than the full body wetsuits.
We have beach loungers and beach towels you can get and we will place it anywhere on the beach for you.
We have American style outlets here so charging is not an issue.
Any more questions, feel free to ask! See you soon
