We will be conducting training at huge discounts in MoalBoal and Panglao (Not Malapascua).

We will be conducting workshops including intensive buoyancy training, trim perfection, frog kicking, back finning and other essentials.  Truth be told this is also a primer to recruit for a stunning trip we are planning to Truk Lagoon in 2025.

Fineprint: Please note that this is not a lavish trip with red carpets, it is designed to be economical to allow our veterans to join in the adventures.  No single supplements unless you insist on your own room.  You will be paired up with a buddy of same sex and personality match to share a room where there are two twin beds in each room. We like to hold a video call with participants prior to confirming booking to chat with you about the trip and make sure we deliver your expectations. Once you are given a place on the trip you will be required to pay a 50% Non refundable deposit to hold your spot. Final 50% payment is required 60 days before arrival date. You will be guided through the process of booking your own flight.  If you are not collecting points on your credit card for flights then we may ask if we can book your flight for you so that we can build up our points to save so tht we pay pay for veterans travel in the future.  In any case you will be asked to provide your flight  details so we can log it and be aware of your travel plans and avoid any mishaps. You will be required to carry divers and holiday/vacation travel insurance. You will be asked to provide dive count, last dive, highest dive certification held and membership numbers that we will verify. Finally, this is a trip filled with fun single divers but a couple or dare we say a married up pair or two may sneak in :). The trip is strongly geared towards singles, military veterans and fun people so please, if you are a Karen or Ken then we would appreciate it if you went on the trip starting on 33nd of Julugust. There will be military veterans on the trip so please know that profanity will be widely distributed and dark humour is our strongest ally that has helped us through hard times. Please consider other options if you think this may offend you.

Can’t wait to see you in Philippines 🙂
