Join us to the unknown Philippines, large, small, in Southern Leyte and Romblon

Experience - Southern Leyte is located in the eastern parts of the Philippines and it's not yet very much exploited for mass tourism. The area around Sogod Bay is known for whale sharks and here you can also see other cartillage fishes regularly, such as manta rays, hammerhead sharks, reef sharks and an abundance of other fish species. The diving is done from a traditional philippino bangka boat and is easy. Tank and weights are included and we have prebooked 10 dives for each one in advance. More diving is of course possible to book on spot. A day free from diving is not necessary to spend on the beach but we can also go out in the djungle or nature or why not go and swim in a waterfall and cool down in the wild. One of the most stunning corall walls can be seen here in Leyte at the dive site, Napantao, pure magic!

Nordtheast of the world famous island Boracay the tiny island Romblon is located. An island that has the last years came up in many international dive magazines and mentioned as a real dive mekka for first of all under water photographers who wish to see and picture rare and unusual species. Maximum 12 divers are available on this tour and the accomodation is in deluxe double or tripple room including full board. 10 dives are inlcuded and prebooked and you can book more diving on spot. A tour on the island is included as well.

Romblon is a small province with several island where Romblon Romblon the last years has become a diving mekka and the resort is well basic but offers good food and nice relaxing and then on top of this excellent diving that usually offers species you would otherwise never see in other destinations but be aware there is a lot of small small crittres even if the coralls are really really nice in many places. Here you also have a chance to experience black water diving and bonfire dives weather permitting and with possibility to photograph and se really weird animilas that shows up at night.
Turtles, tuna, jacks and other a bit bigger fishes can be seen occasstionaly. If you like adventures and likes photography and diving this is a truly amazing and remarkable destination with a unique opportunity to see the holy grails. If you have not been in those destinations, you have really missed something.

Tips and ideas of travelling and socialising - During this trip your ambassador Per will be available and also talk about many different and exiting destinations you might want to visit in the future. With his wide knowledge of seasons, marine life and on hand experience not just from diving but also marine life and misshaps that can happen while you travel you can learn a lot and get many ideas on where you like to go next time.

Lodging - In Souther Leyte we will stay in a basic resort in Padre Burgos where the luxury is to be on site. Breakfast is included and other meals we buy on spot. In Romblon the accomodation is a litle higher standard och there we have full board included. The resort is situated directly by the mangrove beach så the view might not be overwhelming and the beach life might not be amazing but the diving is even more fantastic.

Ambassador Per Lagerberg - Per is an experienced diver and world traveller with a huge interest of diving and travelling. Very interested in geography and biology. He began diving in the early 90s and has privately and through his work as travel agent visited some +80 countries worldwide and dived most of them, he now lives in Dauin in the Philippines where he works like before and has a chance to entertain his diving and of course help others to arrange tours and also sometimes goes with groups to assist and tell more about other interesting dive destinations and travelling.
