Our latest offering in the Philippines is the Atlantis Azores liveaboard. The Azores has set new standards in liveaboard diving in the Philippines and in Asia. Azores is the perfect place from which to explore some of the best diving in the world, offering four distinct itineraries showcasing parts of the Philippines, on schedules only possible by liveaboard.
January through to mid March is Whaleshark season in Southern Leyte; enjoy unrivaled snorkeling action with these gentle giants and dive some unspoiled walls and slopes during the charter.
Tubbataha Reef is on our "bucket list" of dive destinations. The most popular season runs from mid March through to early June – explore kilometers pristine drop offs and see just about anything.
Dumaguete is base for the summer months of June through to September and the Visayas Safari is a unique opportunity to take in several beautiful islands in one week – something that would take several weeks, or several vacations to do any other way.
October through to December the Azores is based out of Puerto Galera exploring the birth place of diving in the Philippines – Anilao, and heading down to Apo Reef on the West coast of Mindoro – a hidden gem only a few get to see.
We have limited availability to Tubbataha Reef in early 2013 with 7 night packages at $3,495. Ask about our agent's discount on these charters. Contact us today!
