Expedition Dive the Philippines



Forming the geographical heart of the Philippines, the Visayas is a star-studded collection of islands that has managed to slip under the tourist radar. While they have a common ground in offering world-class diving, air of joie de vivre and fantastic beaches, each has its own unique personality. One has bug-eyed tarsiers, the next volcano trekking or killer surf, while further along there’s heritage architecture or shaman folk healers. It’s this diversity that makes this underrated region worth exploring in more depth. Encounters with rare marine life accentuates the believe of a dreamlike state as divers search for monstrous, magnificent and marvellous cebuan ocean dwellers through the warm, tourmaline waters.

Mission Statement

With more than 7,000 islands and around 22,500 miles of coastline, it’s little surprise that the Philipines boasts nearly as many dive sites as former first lady Imelda Marcos had shoes!

Underwater, divers are welcomed by a staggering array of variety, both in the type of dive sites and the abundance of marine life.

Divers with a penchant for the weird and small should remember their macro lenses because with mantis shrimp, pygmy seahorses, and nudis aplenty, diving in the Philippines is a slug lover’s dream. That’s not to say the big stuff isn’t here, it certainly is. Mantas, sharks, mola mola, rays and pelagic hunters all frequent the region.

On land, the people are as warm and welcoming as the waters. With white sand beaches, excellent food and drinks, and fantastic hospitality, you might never want to leave!

An extended expedition for divers to experience some of the world’s most diverse range of big marine life encounters with indigenous macro-life found nowhere else on the planet. Divers combine awe-inspiring wildlife encounters with national park excursions, desert island trips, whale shark and Biorock workshops, stunning waterfall and cultural visits at these unique locations in the Visayan Sea.
