ATLANTIS AZORES

 

Azores is the perfect place from which to explore some of the best diving in the world – which offer four distinct itineraries showcasing parts of the Philippines, or schedules only possible by liveaboard.

 

Southern Leyte, location of General MacArthur's "Return to the Philippines" is one of our newest itineraries.  The 2.5km (1.6 miles) fabulous coral garden on the west side of Tancaan Point has five world class dives by itself! The beautiful pristine coral gardens only get better as you go deeper. There are gorgeous drop-offs, walls and lots of aquatic life.

 

Tubbataha Reef is located in the Sulu Sea, at the center of the Coral Triangle between Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. Rarely visited by tourists due to its location and its status as a marine preserve, Tubbataha is made up of two reefs, simply referred to as the North and South Reefs. The North and South Reef both enclose a sandy lagoon. On the southern tip is an islet with a lighthouse. This is used as a rookery for birds and is frequented by turtles. Tubbataha Reefs Natural Parks is quite simply one of Asia's best diving spots and on the 'wish list' for most avid divers; its home to no less than 573 species of fish, 373 species of corals, 11 species of sharks, 12 species of dolphins and whales, nestling hawksbill and green sea turtle.

 

The Visayas are one of the three island groups in the Philippines; enjoy six fabulous days diving from the Atlantis Azores around one of the most beautiful and bio-diverse regions in Asia. Easy cruises each evening will take you from one great dive site to another...With easy transfers, consider a combo trip with Atlantis Dumaguete for a multiple week, first class dive vacation at a very reasonable investment.

 

Apo Reef is part of the world's second largest contiguous reef system as well as the largest in the Philippines. Apo Reef part of "Apo Reef Natural Park" consists of 34 square miles of coral reef seldom visited due to their remote location as well as their status as a Marine protected area. Visitors to Apo Reef are always impressed with the variety of diving as well as species of both fishes and corals. While the Philippines is not generally known for pelagic but rather incredible biodiversity and fish density, visitors are often rewarded with pelagic sightings as well including sharks, turtles, schools of barracuda as well as an occasional Manta to name but a few...Apo Reef is an open ocean magnet for marine life, with typically plenty of shark sightings, occasional Manta Rays and many more impressive marine species.
