Product Description

Atlantis Dive Resorts & Liveaboard’s Premier Land & Sea Combo – 12 Nights in the Philippines’ most outstanding dive locations

What Makes Atlantis Special?

Of course, it’s the people. You come first in everything we do, whether it’s your honeymoon, your first time on scuba or a dedicated photo dive for the most experienced divers. Our resort team has decades of experience, but what makes us stand out is the way we make you feel. When you return, which we are sure you will, it’s just like coming home.

Tubbataha Reef Uncovered

Located within the Northern apex of the Coral Triangle, in the middle of the Sulu Sea, Tubbataha Reef is often considered to be the best diving in all of the Philippines. Reachable only by scuba diving liveaboards, which takes 10-12 hours and only allowed mid-March to mid-June, Tubbataha dive trips are often booked years in advance.

Because of it’s vast wealth of marine life, and subsequent overfishing, divers and environmentalists launched a vigorous campaign to save Tubbataha in the 1980’s. In 1988, the Provincial Government of Palawan endorsed this concept, and President Aquino declared Tubbataha, a National Marine Park. In 1992, the site was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

About Atlantis 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, with a beautiful beachfront location and centrally located minutes from Puerto Galera’s prime dives. In many travel guidebooks and magazines, Atlantis is described as one of the most outstanding dive resorts in the Philippines and the Grand Dame of Puerto Galera resorts. More recently, in 2005, Puerto Galera hit the international tourism limelight when it was given “The Most Beautiful Bay in the World” award by UNESCO.
