Philippines Diving Just Got Better with these 3 Great Liveaboard Options

Diver Training in Puerto Galera, Philippines
The waters around the Philippine Islands are teeming with marine life, and amongst the most diverse on the planet. No wonder then that the country is a magnet for divers looking to explore what lies beneath the waves!

There are already numerous coastal resorts that cater for diving enthusiasts, offering land-based boat trips. These resorts also often provide training for the novice.

For the wishing to explore further afield, we recommend Philippines Liveaboard Cruises.

Liveaboard Dive Cruises

There are a number of liveaboard ships in the Philippines  that offer exciting dive cruises, usually of around 7 days - sometimes longer. Here, we highlight three such ships.


Palawan Discovery
The Palawan Discovery

The Palawan Discovery is unique in the Philippines as it offers cruises for both divers and non-divers, with the ship being fitted to a high standard. There are separate activities for those guests that don't dive, making this a perfect trip for couples within which only one dives. View Itinerary.

It's Official: Boracay - Closed!


Following weeks of speculation it has been announced that the Philippines island of Boracay, described as "the jewel in the crown of Philippines tourism", is to be closed to tourists for six months.

The closure has been ordered by Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines' president, and it is expected to take effect from 26 April onwards.

The massive surge in popularity for the island, in a relatively short period of time, has brought about a strain on its services. During the period of its closure, work will be undertaken by various public bodies on areas such as waste-management, in a concerted effort to improve Boracay's infrastructure.

It is reported that three agencies - the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Department of the Interior and Local Government, and the Department of Tourism jointly recommended the shutdown of Boracay, timed to coincide with the "low season".

Alternative destinations within the Philippines that we can recommend include Puerto Galera, Bohol, Cebu, Ilocos, and El Nido

Mount Mayon Volcano Eruption...

We've had the latest update from our representatives in the Bicol area of the Philippines, Donsol Eco Tours, following the eruption of the Mt Mayon Volcano:

"Following recent eruptions, Mayon Volcano is now on Level 4 alert. It has been continuously erupting since 1200H 22 January."

"Mayon's eruption is not dangerous but precautionary measures need to be taken to ensure zero casualty and for everyone’s safety. Mayon is the most active volcano of the Philippines and erupts every 3 to 5 years (latest eruptions were in 2010, 2013-2014, and now in 2018). Mayon eruptions can last for several weeks to a few months. Compared to volcanoes that do not erupt for hundreds of years (and hence builds a lot of pressure), Mayon erupts so often that the eruptions are not devastating. Life goes on like normal but with minor limitations."

"Flights in and out of Legazpi and Naga airports are suspended until further notice. The possibility of the ash entering the engine of the airplane could pose a threat to passenger safety."
