Experience – Liveaboard Filippinerna Coron och Apo Reef. En härlig och speciell dykresa med allt från vrakdykning, liveaboard, makrodykning, stora djur, korallrev. Så kan man lätt beskriva den här dykresa till Filippinerna. Här finns mängder av platser och varje plats har massor att erbjuda, det gör att du kan åka till Filippinerna flera gånger utan att behöva göra och uppleva samma sak igen. På this diving trip we have put together two favorites, Puerto Galera which is perhaps the most famous place in the Philippines and which became the first real diving destination in the country. Coron is the diving mecca of the Philippines for wreck diving and you will come here for a few days during the tour to experience the wings of history beneath the surface.

A few days of wonderful relaxation with lots of mixed diving in Puerto Galera get you ready to then go out to the northern parts of the Sulu Sea towards the fantastic Apo Reef. Don't confuse it with Apo Island located in Dauin, this is a completely different type of diving. Dramatic walls, sloping reefs and coral gardens with rich marine life and often large fish.

Härlig dykning med koraller, stora djur och vrak

Mantas, eagle rays, stingrays, reef sharks, thresher sharks, hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and much more are regularly seen here. Here you will experience the amazing diving of the Sulu Sea with amazing coral walls, sponges, black coral and gorgonians extending from steep rock walls, echinoderms, octopuses, crustaceans and an incredible variety of fish color and enliven this environment. To make your liveaboard and diving trip really exciting, you then continue to Coron in northern Palawan, where you dive for a number of days on the large wrecks from the Second World War and, if you're lucky, you'll be able to see dugongs. After the wrecks in Coron, the trip goes back to Puerto Galera.

Puerto Galera, Apo reef and Coron, Philippines – “Best of Philippines”

Puerto Galera i Filippinerna ligger vackert beläget vid havet och är omgivet av frodigt beväxta berg. Det anses vara en av de vackraste men också mest utvecklade områdena för dykresorter i landet. Det startade här med enkel turism. Lokalbefolkningen accepterade både lokala och utländska turister som inneboende gäster. Därefter har turismen blomstrat och utvecklats. Med tidens gång har många hotell, resorter, värdshus, barer och restauranger vuxit upp som svampar ur jorden i området. Här hittar du alltjämt bra dykning och vid Verde Island har du fantastiska korallrev med ett mycket rikt marint liv.

Apo Reef and Coron

The amazing reefs at Apo Reef are surprisingly little visited but in this marine park you will find some of the best preserved coral reefs in the Philippines. Along the dramatic walls and coral slopes, large fish and various species of manta rays and rays often patrol. Stingrays, marble rays, spiny lobster and reef sharks are common. Angelfish, butterfly fish, rainbow runners, moorish idols, fusiliers, jacks, snappers and sweetlips follow you as you swim around the reefs.

At a majority of the dive sites you can also see large trevallies, tuna, barracuda and gray and white tip reef sharks, while manta rays and eagle rays are ephemeral visitors. Green and hawkbill turtles are the most common turtles residing in the national park. Groupers and wrasse are often seen among the reefs and on a few occasions guests have witnessed hammerheads and silvertip sharks. The wrecks at Coron from the Second World War are a powerful experience and here you will visit and dive several of them during your liveaboard and diving trip.
