Coron Bay, Philippines Live Aboard Trip 1/10/18-1/21/18

  • City/State:CORON BAY, PHILIPPINES
  • Location:Atlantis Azores Live Aboard Ship
  • Length:All Day

The Atlantis Azores, which used to be the Truk Aggressor and is owned by the same folks who own the Atlantis Resorts in Puerto Galera and Dumaguete, has a 7  night itinerary that goes to Anilao, Apo Reef and the wrecks of Coron. So there are awesome Japanese Wrecks similar to the ones in Truk Lagoon, Caves, Caverns, Macro and Pelagic Marine life. Please get your nonrefundable deposits in ASAP as I have only booked 8 seats and 7 are spoken for already. I can probably book more but like my charters they go fast! Below are the budgetary prices for the updated Atlantis Azores option: Note: Retail $4900 pp for Live Aboard, Philippine Airlines flight out of LAX through Narita to Manila, Van and boat transfer from Manila to Atlantis Resort, Puerto Galera, 1 night at Atlantis Resort, Puerto Galera (12-13Jan), 7 nights aboard the Atlantis Azores (13-20Jan) Van and boat transfer from Atlantis Resort, Puerto Galera to Manila 1 night in Manila. Land transfers budget: Atlantis resort (1 night with meals)  Atlantis Azores 7 nts deluxe cabin. Total air (from LAX) and land budget NET by check price to Giant Stride: $4900 pp/do. Minimum deposit is $500.00 cash or check, no Credit Card payments unless you want to pay 5% over amount, deposits constitute a commitment and are nonrefundable.

Not included: Flight to LAX, Nitrox (budget $150 for 7 nights), marine park fee (budget $125 for 7 nts), dive rental equipment if needed, alcoholic beverages, dive insurance or travel insurance. Atlantis Azores offers complimentary social servings of Tanduay Rhum, house red or white wine, San Miguel Pale Pilsner and San Miguel Light included in the package.

The airfare will work better by routing from Boston to LAX because the price is cheaper, the flight is non-stop from LAX to Manila, and lower the price.  Below is the updated recap including the airfare included in the price:
