Divers explore Sta. Cruz Island marine ecosystem as Dalipe admin holds Dive Safari

The Zamboanga City government under the leadership of Mayor John Dalipe has hosted the Verano Festival Dive Safari.

Veteran divers representing various organizations explored Saturday, April 27, the pristine and colorful marine ecosystem of Sta. Cruz Island, one of the world’s 12 best pink sand beaches.

The participants competed for the best underwater photo, best video, and most number of garbage collected in the underwater clean-up team competition, the city government said.

Dive Safari is one of the highlights of the city’s Verano Festival or Summer Festival 2024 organized by the city government through the City Tourism Office.

A highlight of the event was the induction of officers of the newly-created Federation of Tourism Clubs in Zamboanga City led by youth leader Leonardo King Pamil.

Initiated by the City Tourism Office, the initiative gives the youth an avenue to hone their leadership and organizational skills in promoting tourism as well as foster deeper appreciation for sustainable tourism.
