The Rockport Dive Station was originally a private beach resort owned by the Dela Rosa clan from Taal, Batangas since the 1970’s. The cove, located at Sitio Balite in the town of San Luis in the province of Batangas was a sleepy and quiet area whose primary source of livelihood is fishing and minimal farming. The initial trade utilized by the family in developing the area was quarrying on the adjacent hillside and the quarried rock was used in several critical road and bridge works in the province of Batangas. The endeavor employed several barrio fisher folks within the area. The resort was made available commercially only on selected weekends during the summer season to select guests and family friends.

How to Get There
Rockport is conveniently located at Barrio Balite and Barrio Banuyo, San Luis in the Province of Batangas. By private transport, it can be reached via Tagaytay – Diokno highway (Payapa) route which is just approximately 2 hours from Manila. It is the last barrio in San Luis along the pristine Balayan Bay sea shore. From the resort, access to the different dive sites in Anilao can be made by boat such as Ligpo Island, the Cathedral, Maricaban and Sombrero Island, etc.
If you’re travelling through the City of Lipa, one could turn right into the new highway passing through Alitagtag then Balayan and entering into the southwest entrance of San Luis, through the Anilao side or if you’re going to Batangas City, one could take the main highway leading to Taal and then before turning to Lemery, take the bridge left heading towards San Luis.
Main access roads towards Rockport from Metro Manila are: (1) South Luzon Expressway through Sta. Rosa-Silang-Tagaytay into Payapa Road and then into Lemery, (2) South Expressway through Lipa City-Alitagtag-Balayan, or (3) Emilio Aguinaldo Highway or Coastal Road from Roxas Blvd. through Bacoor-Imus-Dasmarinas-Silang-Tagaytay in Cavite Province and into Payapa Road and then into Lemery.
