All Star Liveaboards is pleased to announce its newest member of the All Star Liveaboard brand – the All Star Philippines. This 36-metre luxury yacht has ten spacious cabins with private baths decorated in a retro-chic décor that can accommodate up to a maximum of 21 passengers. The three levels feature the guest cabins, the main salon for indoor dining, socializing and entertainment centre, the upper deck with sun and shade with comfortable chaise lounges and a relaxation area. The bow has a hot tub and sundeck area with the dive deck located at the stern of the boat. Diving is done from two eight-metre custom-designed hard-bottom tenders and crewed by captain and Divemaster.
Based out of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, the All Star Philippines will operate a six-night itinerary that leaves Puerto Princesa on Wednesday evenings, with a return the following Tuesday. After an overnight voyage to Tubbataha, the remainder of the trip is spent diving the atolls of Tubbataha. Tubbataha is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which ensures the absolute pristine conditions for diving this richly abundant biodiverse area of the world. The underwater life here is spectacular and pristine, with lush hard and soft corals everywhere. This nutrient-rich open-ocean diving brings pelagics – sharks, whalesharks, mantas, dolphins and whales – as well as many macro-critters.
Reservations are now being accepted for the 2019 Tubbataha diving season, which will operate 13 March – 13 June.
