Anilao Philippines 2025

July 13-23, 2025

Description

Anilao, Philippines is one of the most famous destinations in the world for Critter or Muck diving. Rare creatures like the Warty Frog Fish, Rhinopious, Wonderpus, Star Gazer, Blue Ring Octopus, Harlequin Shrimp, Flamboyant Cuttle Fish, are commonly found in these waters. Join me there, July 13-23, 2025 for a 10 night and 9 dive day adventure that includes deluxe accommodations, meals, Wifi, round trip airport transportation and 29 dives.

I selected the locally owned and operated Asri Dive and Leisure Resort because it is unpretentious and provides a high-quality service.

The plan is to dive 3 times a day for 9 days and mix in 2 night dives along the way. Guests will take the evening flight out on the departure day giving them plenty of time to off gas nitrogen.  The cost of this adventure is $3,565 twin share or $4,065 private.

Some of the dive sites we will visit include:

  • Kirby’s Rock - frogfish are often seen here.
  • Secret Bay - this is in the Mainit area and is well known for Sheep Nudibranch.
  • Heidi’s Point - known for octopus, frogfish, seahorse, and much more.

Not included in the package are:

  • Flights to the Philippines
  • National Park and Sanctuary fees of $90
  • Soft drinks, beer, and liquor
  • Nitrox costs $10 per tank.
