Comments Atlantis runs a wonderful dive operation. We started at the Atlantis Dumaguete hotel for a few days. The diving was done from catamarans, which were roomy. We were a group of 16 and they divided us into 8
divers per boat. The dives were good. Lots of macro. We snorkeled with whale sharks one day. That was a great experience. They were number one on my bucket list. A few days later we boarded the Atlantis Azores and cruised the Sulu Sea. The dive sites were filled with beautiful corals and good marine life. We stopped at the island of Bohol to do a land tour, which included seeing the smallest primate(tarsier monkey) in the world, at a refuge for these rare animals. The food at the hotel and on the ship was superior. 3 meals a day with wine and beer included. A great trip, a great memory.
