Verde, Romblon & Ticao

The Most Versatile Diving in the Philippines

This trip combines some of the best of each diving discipline available in the Philippines, from Macro/Super-Macro to Gorgeous Reefs bustling with life. Each location in itself is worthy of being regarded as a world-class dive location - The issue with some of these top dive destinations is the hassle of actually getting there, even more so if you plan on venturing to multiple locations.

With this trip, we take out the stress and inconvenience; the long, tedious and uncomfortable modes of transport; the constant unpacking and 'settling in'. Instead, embark directly from our new, tranquil resort in Anilao, Solitude Acacia (opening in September/October 2019), onboard our comfortable 52m steel-hulled 'MV Solitude One.' Discover some of the best diving in the world in unparalleled comfort, service and security.

Romblon

Romblon is picking up quickly on diver's radars as a spot to rival, if not surpass, that of Lembeh for macro. It is regarded as the best location to find the 'Holy Grail' of nudibranchs, the Melibe Colemani, with dozens to be found on a single dive! The equally stunning Cyerce sp. are also found in abundance here! Other rarities from Severnsi & Pontohi Pygmy Seahorses to Mimic and Wunderpus Octopus can be found in this Macro/Super-Macro paradise.

There is plenty more to be found around the area, from a Blue-Hole dive to beautiful reefs and turtle sanctuaries.

Verde Island

Verde is not too far from Anilao itself and generally the first stopping point on the trip. Verde boasts some of the most pristine corals to be found within the Philippines, Verde too offers plenty of macro critters to be found such as frogfish and nudibranchs. Although, the main attraction here is the stunning reef, the sheer abundance, and variety of fish and coral species here is truly remarkable!

Around this area one can find some strong currents, which opens up possibilities to see some pelagics such as Manta Rays and even Thresher Sharks

Ticao

Most famous for the site known as "Manta Bowl."

As the name suggests, it is an excellent location to find the awe-inspiring Manta Rays. Though it's not just Manta Rays one can hope to see, around this site Whale Sharks and even Hammerheads are found on a regular basis.
This location alone offers so much more than just that, from sharks, huge schools of tuna and jackfish to stunning and vast reef walls. This spot is a dream for wide-angle photographers.
