Dear Divers,

We are pleased to announce the opportunity for you to participate in the exploration of the Philippine seascape with veteran guides and marine biologists Ethan Daniels and Geoff Cook. As you may know, the islands of the Philippines host some of the world’s highest recorded levels of marine biological diversity. Part of the renowned Coral Triangle, the Philippines is home to thousands of fish and invertebrate species making it one of the most revered diving destinations in the world.

Our Philippine Diving Expedition provides you with the unique chance to appreciate a variety of marine ecosystems with a focus on the spectacular coral reefs of the Central Visayas region. This 8 day/9 night trip, based from the tropical comfort of the Polaris Beach and Dive Resort on Cabilao Island, opens the door for you to explore one of the world’s most ecologically dynamic marine regions. The trip is limited to only 12 participants and we only have 4 spots remaining! The cost of $2,075.00 (without EANx) or $2,195.00 (with EANx) is based on double occupancy and does not include airfare.

Your expedition leaders, Geoff and Ethan, together have over 20 years of guiding experience as well as intimate knowledge of coral reef ecology, dive instruction, photography, and the marine fauna of the tropical Indo-West Pacific. Each day we will explore the best dive sites around Cabilao, Olango, and Balicasag Islands in search of scenic reefs, schooling hammerheads, frogfish, stargazers, ghost pipefish, sea moths, velvetfish, and much, much more. In addition to diving there will be ample time to snorkel, beach comb, and explore the islands relaxed surroundings. Complementing the itinerary of dives will be your leaders’ insightful evening presentations on topics in marine ecology, reef conservation, and underwater photography.

We hope you can join us on this sensational diving adventure in December 2009!
