Any suggestions for a last minute UW photography trip?   Ideally live aboard, warm water and within 12 hours (+/-) of San Francisco.

 

Maybe some of you know about charters, group trips or boats with an open spot for a female share?

 

Available to go mid June to end of July as well as a couple weeks mid to late August.

 

Suggestions welcome!

 

Doesn't have to be a live aboard - but has to be warm :-)

The Philippines is a direct flight from SFO and Anilao is only about 2-3 hour drive from the airport.  Quite a few members of the forum have been to Dive Solana, www.divesolana.com .  The resort can pick you up from the airport and get you back there.  August though is pushing well into typhoon season.  June is your best bet.

 

Cheers

I am most probably off for a land based trip to Raja Ampat 30th June-14th July. But why don't you do Bali ?. Lax-Sin direct flights and onward cheap flights to Bali. It is diving season there with some great spots - Tulamben, Amed, Secret Bay, Pemuteran/Menjangan etc etc That's my second choice if i don't end up in Raja Ampat

 

Cheers and good luck :lightbulb:
