Anilao Philippines 2024

July 13-23, 2024


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, 2024 for a 10 night adventure that includes deluxe accommodations, meals, Wifi, round trip airport transportation and 26 dives.

I selected the locally owned and operated Asri Dive and Leisure Resort because it is unpretentious and provides a high-quality service. They offer three levels of rooms and I selected the Deluxe rooms for this trip. Meals are also provided along with tea and coffee.

The plan is to dive 3 times a day for 8 days and mix in 2 night dives along the way. The last day we will stay dry and enjoy Anilao. The cost of this adventure is $2,975 per person. The package is based on single occupancy but if coming with a friend, partner, or dive buddy, you can save $150 each by sharing a room.
