Dive into the Philippines
The Philippines can be explored from a liveaboard or resort stay – or why not get the best of both worlds and tailor-make a combination of the two for the ultimate Philippines adventure. Here are some highlights:
DAUIN & DUMAGUETE, NEGROS – Frogfish capital of the Philippines and a haven for critter diving. Don’t miss the chance to snorkel with Whale Sharks! Relax in the luxury of the Atmosphere Resort & Spa or the renowned Atlantis Dumaguete Resort.
NEW to us for 2023 and beyond, Atlantis Dumaguete Resort incorporates 44 rooms built around a lush tropical garden, and features a pool, spa and waterfront restaurant, in addition to a spacious, well-equipped camera room. This beachfront dive resort is perfectly located for divers wishing to discover the superb diving of the Dauin and Dumaguete area, which includes a number of Marine Protected Areas. With its black volcanic sand, Dauin on the island of Negros is a unique destination for critter diving. Guests can also take advantage of day trips to nearby Apo Island, Siquijor, and snorkeling with the Whale Sharks in Oslob.
ANDA, BOHOL – Mix it up with spectacular wall diving and tiny critter hunting. The island of Bohol is situated in the Central Visayas region and consists of the main island and 75 smaller ones surrounding it! That’s a lot to discover underwater… There’s also Whale Sharks! Lush, green Bohol is perfect for topside explorers too with its famous Chocolate Hills, adventure treks, and encounters with the Philippines’ charismatic and diminutive Tarsier primates. Stay at Magic Oceans Dive Resort.
PUERTO GALERA, MINDORO – Home to Verde Island, centre of the world’s marine biodiversity, Puerto Galera has evolved into one of the top dive destinations in Asia, if not, the world. From corals to critters, divers are truly spoilt for choice here.
The vibrant resort town sits in a natural harbour on the Verde Island Passage, and its surrounding waters were designated a UNESCO ‘Man and Biosphere Reserve’ in 1973. More than 40+ sites offer a tremendous versatility that appeals to divers of all levels. Here, you can explore shallow coral gardens, exciting drift dives on walls and penetrable wrecks, whilst searching for everything from tiny critters in the bays, to pelagics in the stronger currents in the Passage.
The exceptional range of diving has made Puerto Galera particularly attractive for underwater photographers, and both of our NEW resorts boast bespoke camera rooms and superb facilities for photographers.
Scandi Divers Resort is located on the pristine white sand of Big La Laguna Beach. Surrounded by a tropical paradise with panoramic ocean views, this 40 room resort is a great choice for divers seeking a relaxed atmosphere with easy access to incredible diving.
Atlantis Puerto Galera Resort is part of the popular Atlantis Resorts group, renowned for its excellent amenities and service. The resort’s 40 rooms are attractively situated amongst lovely grounds stocked with plants and flowers, built into the hillside just steps above Sabang Beach. Divers staying here can also add a trip to Anilao to their holiday. The so-called birthplace of scuba diving in the Philippines, Anilao is one of the best places in the world for nudibranch lovers and a top spot for blackwater diving.
