Great crew, decent boat and food, amazing Apo reef dive sites

Diving on amazing Apo reef just teeming with fish and fling completely safe and getting full use of my air before surfacing

1. Crew super experienced with 1000,s dive to make best use of conditions. 2. Good ratio guides so that groups organised into experience and air use groups to max your dive time. 3 Apo reef far from shore as good as anywhere in my 15 years experience

Food Poisoning Ruined the Trip

great crew very helpful and friendly, the group we had was awesome too. However on the second day 8/10 of us got food poisoning from the lunch which was very disappointing. Half of the group couldn't do half the dives and no refund or proper apology was given when the manager was confronted. The boat is basic but nice enough for a budget trip. the dorm room is very hot if you don't have a fan blowing directly on you, I would move the mattress outside.

Real diving with the nicest crew

The highlight was the combination of very friendly and funny crew members on a original Filipino Liveaboard which let you feel the sea and the stars 6 days very close with breathtaking wreck penetrations and lovely dives sites at apo reef. A experience Full of life, local stories, happy divers in a basic setting concerning material luxury-the luxury was to share the love for diving with the divers n diveguides. A lifetime experience for real divers.

On a tout aimé dans cette croisière plongée beaucoup trop courte. Je recommande de prendre le pack avec Apo Reef. Les épaves de Coron sont remplis d'histoires et de vie. Bateau typique des Philippines avec un personnel bienveillant et toujours prêt à rendre service. Top moment de nos vacances! Je recommande.

Real low cost but great experience.

If you manage you expectations, you are bound to have a great time. The dive suites are overused, but the regulators and BCD’s are in good conditions. The sleeping area have 8 bunk beds in one hall and stairs to double bed under the bow. I wish I was able to use the kayak. The food basic so do not expect anything special other than chicken, vegetables, pork, egg and rice.

Crew friendliness is high as you expect to see in the Philippine. Nice wreck dives with location with great scenes between the dives.
