SWS ONE WEEK OR TWO WEEK TRIP, DIVERS CHOICE

SWS has designed the ultimate dive trip for the discerning dive adventure traveler yearning to dive the Philippines as it should be, as you've dreamed it would be, diving around the Philippine Islands. The trip is in two parts, that way you can choose your vacation based on the amount of time you have!

The first week

Spent at The Atlantis Resort, This wonderfully relaxed beach resort is located in Puerto Galera. Puerto Galera, is well known for its numerous scuba diving spots; the area was designated a Man and Biosphere Reserve of UNESCO in 1973 and has some of the most diverse coral reef diving in Asia located at the very heart of the 'Coral Triangle'. The area also features numerous pocket beaches and stunning tropical scenery. Atlantis Puerto Galera is beautifully built into the hills of Sabang Beach of Puerto Galera and has a great beachfront location; in many travel guidebooks and magazines Atlantis is quoted as one of the most outstanding resorts of the Philippines with its award winning (Flintstones) design.

The second week

We board a luxury live-a-board yacht – The Azores, The Azores has set new standards in live-a-board diving in the Philippines and, the perfect place from which to explore some of the best diving in the world – our itinerary showcases the best parts of the Philippines that is only possible by live-a-board. January through to mid March is diving with Thresher Sharks in Malapascua. We will enjoy unrivaled action with these beautiful animals and dive some unspoiled walls and slopes during the week. We will be passing through some of the most beautiful islands imaginable (a photographer's dream) while diving our brains out while moving into areas with spectacular dive sites only reached by Live-aboard. If you've yet to experience a really nice live-aboard dive yacht, you have a treat waiting for you. Pampering is the first order of business. With a maximum of 16 passengers and a crew of 6….you do the math. Dive cruising the second week of your vacation kicks it up a notch beyond the standard dive vacation. It just doesn't get better than this. You will be able to honestly say you've experienced the ULTIMATE Philippine dive adventure after this trip.
