The Azores has set new standards in liveaboard diving in the Philippines, and as many of the guests say, in Asia, Azores is the perfect place from which to explore some of the best diving in the world that offers three distinct itineraries showcasing parts of the Philippines on schedules only possible by liveaboard.
The majority of trips embark from either one of its world class dedicated dive resorts, which are acknowledged to be among the best in South East Asia. What stays the same are the creature comforts, great food and welcoming crew.
Its latest itinerary, from January through early March, takes in the wrecks of Coron with the colorful walls of Apo Reef along the way. Guests embark and disembark from Atlantis Puerto Galera.
Its Tubbataha season runs from mid-March through early June – explore kilometers in this pristine protected UNESCO World Heritage site located 100 miles offshore and open to diving only 3 months out of the year.
Dumaguete is its base for the months of June through December and the Visayas Safari is a unique opportunity to take in multiple beautiful islands in one week – something that would take several weeks to do any other way. A special Malapascua “Thresher Shark Trip” is also offered from its Dumaguete resort.
