Resolute is an exceptionally stable boat
and ideally suited to off-shore diving.

We love Resolute as a
dive boat. The hull is a true ocean
going design which makes for very
stable sailing. The rear deck is also
extremely large, with just a short
step down to the speedboats. No
squeezing to find room, or steep
stairs to get into the dive boat.
Diving will be made
in the largest speedboat, with both
Resolute divemasters as guides. This
means that we can split up during the
dives. Divers wishing to go a bit
deeper, or photographers will love the
chance to dive in a smaller group.

are considered to be the global center of
marine biodiversity and have the best diving
in the Philippines. The reefs have beautiful
corals and tropical fish and are home to large
sharks, rays and barracuda. It's remote
location and short window of good weather
helps protects the fish life.
Reef sharks are common, with blacktip, nurse,
grey reef and whitetips on most sites. It is
also possible to see larger animals such as
whale sharks, manta rays, as well as the
occasional tiger shark and hammerhead
The reefs serve as a nesting ground for sea
turtles. Both green turtles and hawksbill are
seen on almost dive site.
We love all of the dive sites, but some of
our favourites would be
- Staghorn Point - great
for a late afternoon dive
- Dalsan wreck - sharks,
sharks, sharks and lovely for the first dive
of the day and good for a full day of diving
- Black Rock - if strong
current the big stuff comes out. If you are
lucky maybe even an hammerhead shark.
- Shark airport - as the
name suggests sharks, but also great fish
life in the shallow water
- Seafan alley - beautiful
wall with gorgonians and turtles in the
- Malayan wreck -
beautiful fish life, bumphead parrotfish and
sharks sleeping on the sand
- Wall street - great fish
life and lots of sharks
- Two dives - SW and NW points
- Jessie has the most fish life of all of
the reefs. Good for up to four dives and
always good viz. However, currents can be
strong and difficult to hide from, so it's
usually done at the end of the safari, at
the discretion of the boat captain.
