Day 3: Apo Island

Apo Island holds the distinction of being one of the very first and successful marine sanctuaries in the Philippines. So much so that it is used as the centerpiece model at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Due to its protected status, the coral reefs are healthy while the fish life is prolific. Guests will have a chance to marvel at the best underwater communities in the world. Expect to see turtles, schools of jacks. A visit to a fishing village is also on the itinerary for today.

We’ve got a treat for you! Enjoy an entertaining BBQ dinner on the island.

Day 4: Cabilao

Cabilao remains as one of the roads less traveled due to the popularity of its more famous neighbor Balicasag. Free from the madding crowd, expect to see pristine beaches and azure waters. Underwater, the corals seem to be more prolific and alive here than the other popular dive sites in the Visayas. Sea fans, Elephant ear corals, vibrantly colored soft corals await the lucky divers and snorkelers.

On your last night, our Farewell Cocktails and Dinner will give you one last moment to remember.
