Experience The Philippines like never before during our incredible combination resort-and-liveaboard ten nights trip! Start the trip off with three nights as a guest at the incomparable Atlantis Resort in Dumaguete. On the morning of September 24th, be transported to pristine dive locales aboard the Azores liveaboard luxury yacht. We are pleased to be returning to The Philippines and cannot wait to live the best of both travel worlds with this stellar trip! This Special Itinerary will start by diving the famed critter sites of Dumaguete. Spot courting mandarinfish along with all sorts of weird and wonderful inhabitants. Frogfish as small as your fingernail or as large as your dinner plate. Commensal shrimp that sway in the fronds of anemones or dance on top of bubble coral. Mantis shrimp peek up at you from their burrows. Atlantis Dumaguete showcases deluxe rooms that have climate-controlled air conditioning, ceiling fans, en-suite facilities, cable television and a fully-stocked refrigerator. There is even a golf course nearby. The Atlantis Resort at Dumaguete houses Toko's Restaurant. You can dine on international or local cuisine while seated on the patio, or you can be shaded in the palapa. The diving at Dumaguete is quite spectacular in and of itself, even without the splendor or the resort. The house reef is just outside the resort. Slightly longer day trips will take us to the world-famous dive site of Apo Island.
Aboard the well appointed liveaboard, the Atlantis Azores, 16 divers will dive in comfort! The Azores boasts 7 standard cabins and one master suite, available at an additional cost. Two tenders serve the main boat, carrying the divers to and from the dive sites. Nitrox is available on board to prolong your time spent with the magnificent creatures of the Visayan Walls. The Azores also has full camera facilities for those photographers wishing to take advantage of the colorful scenes playing out beneath the waves.
Our Azores Itinerary will follow the Bohol route - a great complement to your initial stay in Dumaguete - we will be on the lookout for a mix of larger and miniscule critters during the remainder seven days. Popular dive sites along the Bohol Itinerary include: Pescador Island, Oslob And Sumilon Islands, Balicasag Island, Apo Island, and so much more!
