ANILAO

deep sea diving

Anilao, Batangas, a two-and-a-half (124 km; 77 miles) drive through the Southern Luzon country side from Manila, is considered one of the most sought after dive destinations in the Philippines. It’s hidden underwater treasure offers world-class diving and incredible macro photo opportunities.  It has some of the highest concentrations of diverse marine life on the planet, including over 90% of the coral species and a spectacular number of different species of nudibranch.

Since the 1960’s Anilao has remained at the forefront of the scuba industry and is still an excellent place for snorkelers, novices and experienced aquanauts alike.

Photographers inevitably have a field day here, and professionals come in time and time again from around the world to shoot the area’s diverse sites.  The macro photographer will enjoy the legendary photo opportunities this dive destination affords while wide angle enthusiasts won’t be disappointed either.

A group of divers organized by DiveNet regularly go to Anilao on week-ends.  See some of Anilao’s top side and underwater photos.

resulting in strong currents of up to 6 knots. This makes the area well known for its spectacular, exhilarating drift dives. The diversity of hard and soft corals,
along with hundreds of species of tropical fish life makes Puerto Galera one of the most popular dive destinations in the Philippines.

diving Philippines

PALAU is one of the most extraordinary diving spots on this planet. Far to the southwest of Micronesia the Republic of Belau (the traditional name) consists of an archipelago of 343 islands.

Palau's profuse, unspoiled reefs offer a wealth of marine life, coral formations and wrecks. Divers enjoy fantastic visibility into blue holes, huge caverns with a variety of large pelagic predators, sharks, turtles, dolphins and many species of migratory fish. Land locked marine lakes, accessible from the sea through tunnels beneath the island's steep shorelines, are home to rare jelly fish, anemones and soft corals. 

Palau's famed "Rock Islands" are a collection of rounded, foliage-covered isles which seem to float above the surface of the water. A boat trip through them will reveal a number of magnificent white sand beach hideaways perfect for a secluded picnic.

Many visitors to Palau arrive on Continental Airlines by way of daily flights from Guam--gateway to Micronesian. Continental Airlines provide daily flights from Guam to Palau and twice a week from Manila, Philippines.
