Dale and I went to Puerto Galera, Philippines in June of this year. We immediately fell in love with the people and cant wait to go back.
Our first group trip will be to the Marco Vincent Resort in the Philippines. We cant wait to share with you the treasure we found there.
Boutique Resort two blocks from White Beach. Beautiful accommodations, wonderful food and the most amazing people. The staff will make you feel welcome and pampered the entire visit. The cost includes the flight from Los Angeles, food, lodging, transport from airport to the resort and diving. Plus one complimentary massage and a beer at the end of your diving day. We are offering a second week option for those who want to stay longer.
World class reefs, walls and muck diving. We will dive 6 days with 3 dives a day plus 2 night dives for a total of 20 dives. Nitrox is available at $150 for the week. Water temp around upper 70s to low 80s, 5 mil wetsuit and/or hooded vest are recommended. This is a wonderful time as the water is clear with some of the best life on the reef. All dives are guided with no more then 5 guests per dive master.
Big Beth is a 82 foot fiber glass floating dive center. She is fully equipped with safety equipment and an on board compressor. For your convenience there are 2 flushing toilets, 4 Shower Stations and onboard WiFi Internet. You will also appreciate the camera charging station and dedicated fresh water tanks. As if that’s not enough you will be served gourmet lunches prepared in the galley by a chef and his team. We cannot say enough about this boat. It’s one of the most luxurious dive boat you will ever dive from. Complete with a hot washcloth and ginger tea at the end of each dive.
