Intro

An outstanding expedition in the country of the 7000 islands, the Tubbataha reef is without any doubt one of the world’s best preserved underwater gems.

These two atolls are home to an incredible number of species with big fish encounters on all dives. It is a place to meet manta rays, whale sharks, dolphins and an array of colourful macro species.

A perfectly organised cruise with a warm and welcoming atmosphere on an exceptional boat followed by a stay in Cebu for more diving and for a chance to discover some of the local cultural sites.
