One plunge is all it takes to be enchanted by the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Center and experience a diving adventure that you won't forget.
DAY 4: Diving with Dugongs
We'll head up to the best Dugong watching spots to get a glimpse of these gentle sea cows in their natural habitat. Also considered as the mermaids of the sea, this unique creature looks like a manatee but shares a fluked tail similar to a whale. They are the only vegetarian marine mammals and can eat up to 50 kilograms of grass a day!
As part of ecotourism initiatives, you will be briefed by your tour guide on how to safely approach these gentle creatures without disturbing them. Please note that touching is prohibited, and at least 5 meters distance away from the dugong is required.
Day 5: Rest day at your leisure
Enjoy a restful day and make the most out of the luxury amenities at Club Paradise Palawan. Whether it's enjoying a beachside massage, soaking in the pool, or lounging on the powdery white sand of the beach, you'll have a relaxing time enjoying paradise.
DAY 6: Transfer to Two Seasons Resort
After your early breakfast and check-out at 10 AM, you'll be transferred to Coron Town where you can enjoy a delectable local meal (own expense) before meeting your guide. Once you're good to go, you'll hop on a boat and enjoy a 1-hour cruise to Two Seasons Resort.
The rest of the day is yours to spend at leisure; explore the luxury amenities of the resort and enjoy a refreshing dip in its pristine beach.
DAY 7: Irako Wreck Diving & Maquinit Hot Springs
See the sunken remnant of World War II as you enjoy a dive at Irako Wreck. Submerged 40 meters deep underwater, the former Japanese Refrigeration Ship is 147 meters long and 19 meters wide, and is fully covered by hard and soft corals that can be visibly seen from the surface because of the crystal clear waters of the lake. Undoubtedly one of the best wreck dive sites in Busuanga, you have the opportunity to spot hunting tunas, groupers, green sea turtles, lionfish, and even barracudas swimming around.
After a day of exploration, you'll enjoy a relaxing soak at Maquinit Hot Spring. One of the very few saltwater springs in the world, this is the perfect conclusion to a day of diving.
DAY 8: Barracuda Lake Diving
This lake is famous not because of Barracudas but because of a secret hidden in its waters—an otherworldly thermocline that's unlike anywhere else in the world. Containing both fresh and salt water, the temperature gradually increases as you dive deeper before instantly becoming cold again just a few meters above the lake's sandy bed. A curious and unique sensorial diving experience coupled with impressive limestone formations that you shouldn't miss.
DAY 9: Leisure Time
Indulge yourself in the resort's luxury amenities with a full day spent however way you want it.
Day 10: Flight to Manila & Walled City Tour
Hop on a flight back to Manila and be greeted by your English-speaking driver upon arrival at the airport. You'll be whisked away in convenience and comfort to your luxury hotel to get settled before departing for your Old Manila City Tour to the famous walled city of Intramuros.
