Regular price US $3810
Just a few months of the year, from mid-March through early June, conditions in the Philippines' Sulu Sea are reliable enough to dive the remote Tubbataha Reefs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to some very exciting diving.
We've chartered the S/Y Philippine Siren, a beautiful ironwood and teak gaff-rigged Phinisi liveaboard. All diving takes place from her two rigid hull inflatable tenders.
Dive site highlights of our planned Tubbataha itinerary can be viewed here:
As always, sea conditions and the captain's judgment determine the final itinerary.
This is advanced diving at some sites. You should carry a minimum of Advanced Open Water certification and be comfortable diving from a zodiac in current, with the buoyancy skills to execute a blue water safety stop with an SMB. A reef hook is not required but is sometimes useful. Contact us if you'd like to speak with the trip leader about the skills you'll need to have fun!
You can maximize your vacation and get back in the water a few days early to make sure your diving skills are at their peak for this expedition by joining us at Atlantis Resort Puerto Galera April 7-12, 2018.
