UK dive travel specialists Dive Safari Asia have created an island tour of the Philippines which features a collection of the regions finest marine environments. Intended to highlight the scope of the Philippines rich and diverse marine life, the tour offers the chance to dive over pristine coral reefs, enjoy encounters with elusive thresher sharks, discover black sand ‘muck dives’ and night dive with abundant critters.
En route tour members will dive 7 different islands spread throughout different regions of the country including Apo Island’s colourful coral gardens, Malapascua and Gato Island for thresher and white tips sharks and dive the shores around southern Negros which are home to a rich abundance of invertebrates and critters rarely seen outside the Indo Pacific region.
Tour leaders Ben Stokes and Sarah Kemsley carefully selected a number of specific dive sites to feature in the expedition following over 10 years and thousands of dives throughout the region.
