We were supposed to visit this diving resort last year but since community quarantine happened, we decided to postpone our trip to Summer Cruise.
But now that they ease the travel guidelines in Batangas, we decided to push this last weekend.
Summer Cruise Diving Resort is located in San Luis, Batangas. It is a 3-hour drive from Manila. From the name itself, it is a diving spot and a resort that was established last 2019.
When we went there, we didn’t present any health certificate as indicated in the picture above. But just in case, much better if you bring a health certificate to be sure. Don’t forget to wear your face mask and face shield and practice social distancing as much as you can.
They have a day trip here in Summer Cruise. The fee for a day trip is 350 PHP per head. For an overnight stay, you have three options for accommodation. It’s either you get a room, do camping, or sleep on a hammock. If you will bring your own hammock, the fee is 450 PHP.
WEEKDAYS – 700 PHP/head
WEEKENDS – 850 PHP/head
The room is clean and you have a balcony. One advantage if you booked their rooms is that you have your own private bathroom. Note that they have no aircon here but it really gets cold at night. We didn’t even use the electric fan inside the room.
RENT – 550 PHP
PITCH A TENT – 450 PHP
We noticed that most of the guests here at Summer Cruise choose to stay in the tent. They also have 2 common bathrooms for campers here. When we went there, the resort is fully-booked and most of them are campers and freedivers.

When we went here, we saw pets and even kids inside the resort. Just take full responsibility if you will bring a pet or kids to Summer Cruise.
