Atlantis Azores is delighted to announce a new and exciting itinerary. Our guests will embark on a dive trip of a lifetime exploring sunken World War 2 wrecks in Coron Bay and diving on the 34 mile long "Mini Tubbataha"?? Apo Reef system.
The charter will start with the UNESCO World Heritage site of Apo Reef. A full day's diving will take place here exploring some of the finest coral reefs in Asia. Expect to see white tip sharks, spotted eagle rays, hawksbill turtles, bump head parrot fish and sea snakes.
The Azores will steam down to Coron Bay and the next 3 days will be spent diving on the historical Japanese fleet which was sunk by the American Navy during the Second World War. Task Force 38 lead by Admiral William F. Halsey destroyed 24 ships which were anchored in Coron Bay on the 24th September 1944. During our time in Coron we will explore world famous wrecks like the seaplane tender, Akitsushima, and the Irako. After being down on the bottom for over 70 years, the coral growth and marine life on the wrecks are truly outstanding. Once our wreck adventure is complete the boat will travel back to Apo Reef for some more breathtaking dives.
We will be on the lookout for many pelagic species such as grey reef sharks, manta rays and huge schools of barracuda. With over 500 species of coral and 300 species of fish, Apo Reef will make your wildest diving dreams come true.
