    Question Source for Sofnolime 797 in Philippines

    Hi everyone!

    I'm going for a bit of a diving trip in the Philippines in a couple of months and I'm wondering if anybody knows of a good place to buy sofnolime 797 locally in or around Cebu or our first stop Cabilao. I'd rather not bring it on the airplane if at all possible.

    Thanks for any tips!

    Yea, I found that after I posted. Feels like I've called and emailed just about everyone in and around Cebu and Manila, and the only thing that seems to be available is the D-shaped 2.0 - 5.0 mm extrudate. Weird keg sizes too, I'm constantly being quoted 16.8kg though no such size seems to be available from Molecular. Prices vary from 7500 PHP to 19000 PHP a keg...

    I guess I'll have to bring my own after all :)

    If you can find better further out of the area you're diving why not have it put on a bus/ferry/jeepney to where you want it, transportation is cheap. As your first port of call try Evolution on Malapascua, then Captn Greggs and Atlantis in Puerto Galera. There will be other places too, especially in the Subic Bay area. Import charges run crazy high in the Philippines so expect to pay around $15+/kg for lime. I was in the same predicament as you a few months ago and it took me a lot of time to get the right contacts to have sorb in the places I needed it. Good luck in your search!

    There is a dive shop in Cebu that is called Asia Divers you might want to contact them. When I was looking for sorb I was told to contact them. The shop is more of a distributor for equipment etc.
