World's Best: Atlantis Azores, Philippines

The reputation of Atlantis Dive Resorts and Liveaboards as the leader in first-class dedicated dive vacations in the Philippines is further enhanced by dive yacht Atlantis Azores. The Azores is positioned strategically to service remote diving areas with spectacular diving throughout the Philippines' 7,100+ islands. It also allows for easy and efficient transfers and combo itineraries from its two beautiful resorts - Atlantis Puerto Galera and Atlantis Dumaguete. The Azores also continues Atlantis' long tradition of providing quality and cost effective vacations while insisting their divers "come as a guest, leave as a friend".

In January and February, Azores operates out of Atlantis Puerto Galera for the Anilao, Apo Reef and Coron itinerary. The charter starts with Anilao, a macro paradise home to more than 300 species of nudibranch. Then it's on to Apo Reef for some of the best reef diving in Asia. The wrecks of Coron Bay are next - three exciting days diving on the historical Japanese fleet sunk by the US Navy during World War II.

Late March through to June, Azores visits the famous Tubbataha Reef area. Tubbataha Reef Natural Park is home to no less than 573 species of fish, 373 species of coral, 11 species of shark and 12 species of dolphin and whale, as well as nesting hawksbill and green sea turtles. Tubbataha Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and only accessible by liveaboard three months of the year.

From July through to December, Azores operates out of the Atlantis Dumaguete Resort for the popular Bohol itinerary. Enjoy six fabulous days diving from the Atlantis Azores around one of the most beautiful and biodiverse regions in Asia. Special request ten- and 12-night charters to Malapascua for thresher sharks and mantas can also be arranged.
