$6444 for 11 nights*

Tubataha Reef is the pinnacle of Philippine diving, a famous offshore atoll protected as a National Marine Park. It’s only accessible by liveaboard dive boat and has very limited season. The Philippine waters are sublime, warm and tropical. Diving at Tubataha Reef is mostly drift diving over reefs and steep walls that drop into the unseen depths of the Pacific Ocean. Healthy coral reefs, schooling jacks and barracudas, lots of sharks, potential for mantas and whale sharks and loads of great diving.
Puerto Galera is a boutique dive resort with access to great diving only a short skiff ride away. There are not only reefs and walls to dive but also muck diving. Muck diving is basically looking in the areas off the normal reef areas in sand and mud for incredible creatures like hairy frogfish, wonderpuss, and thorny seahorses. The diving at Puerto Galera is 60% reef dives and 40% muck diving.
The adventure includes four nights at the Atlantis Resort in Puerto Galera (resort and yacht owned by the same company).  Then we will transfer to Palawan Island and embark on a 7 night trip aboard the dive yacht Azores at Tubataha Atoll.

We’ll knock off any dive rust at the Puerto Galera land based resort and make sure all gear arrives before transferring to Palawan Island and the liveaboard yacht. 

There are easy direct flights from the west coast of the US to Manila so you can get into the Indo-Pacific without having to do two days of travel to places like Indonesia.

The price includes a domestic round trip flight to Palawan from Manila and transfers to Puerto Galera from Manila. Price is based on double occupancy.
