Anilao Philippines Trip MAY 2019 – Book Now!

OVERSEAS TRIP

Club Oscellaris Anilao,Philippines

Fri 17th – Sat 25th May 2019

Anilao is consistently ranked in the top Muck Dive destinations of the world, with its abundance of macro life, including rare creatures such as hairy frogfish, mimic octopus, blue-ringed octopus, rhinopias, to name a few, and a huge variety of vibrant and colourful nudibranchs. Anilao also has some pristine hard and soft corals to add colour to the underwater muck diving environment! It’s a must go destination for keen photographers, but would also be an interesting (and easy) dive destination for novice divers and non-photographers alike.

We are staying at Club Oscellaris (7 nights/4 dives per day = 24 dives package), which boasts resident photographers/knowledgeable DMs who will be able to show you all the weird and wonderful critters that Anilao has to offer! Or you can enjoy solo dives to your heart’s content, taking your own leisurely time.

We have provisionally reserved 14 spaces:                                                

6 x Twin/Double rooms = 12 pax

2 x Single rooms (toilet & shower facilities shared among 3 rooms) = 2 pax

 

SUPREME DIVE PACKAGE 4 dives per day

Inclusions:

  • Room Accommodations (twin share arrangement or single room) – fans only; air cons are additional extra
  • All meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)
  • Maximum Four dives per day (4 day dives or 3 day + 1 night dive)
  • Boat and Dive Guide services
