Diving in the Philippines from a Live-aboard can be your best choice, with its 7107 Islands ideally suited for island hopping. The three Dive boats from Dugong Dive Center are based on the northern tip of the Coral Triangle, the major Palawan dive destination in Busuanga and only a short distance to the Mindoro Strait. An area influenced by marine species from the south China Sea, the main influence is the Sulu Sea or also called the coral triangle.
Apo Reef is located in the Mindoro Strait and is the second biggest continues Reef in the world. The perfect reef to dive from a Live-aboard days on end, but we also offer shorter day trips. The marine bio-diversity is just amazing... the 600m drop offs teaming with marine life in the currents, right up to the shallow waters. Apo reef has more than 500 coral plus endless fish species, the deep blue waters make even Hammerhead sharks visible.
Just drift along the endless walls and enjoy the third dimension; cruise along with Sharks, Barracudas, Tunas, Jacks, Rays, Turtles and endless schools of Fusiliers. On the shallow shallow plateau (3 to 12 m) even beginners find this reef amazing with all its marine life.
The Live-aboard fleet from the Dugong Dive Center also offers trips to the famous Coron Wrecks, Coron Island, Black Island, Turtle Islands, Tara Islands and Hunters Rock.
Our boats are small but spacious and allow very private trips with your friends, partner or family. Trips are booked on a private charter basis for the route of your request with your own Boat crew, dive guide and chef.
The Boats have simple cabins without air condition, but guests usual sleep on a bed under the stars... nature at its best. Some of our Guests call it, camping on the Boat.
Usual itineraries are: 3days / 2 nights Apo Reef or 3 days / 2 nights cruise around Busuanga Island (Coron Wrecks from WWII plus Barracuda Lake) or choose a combination of both with a one night break in a nice resort.
