Do you want to have bragging rights to have dived some of the most unheard of dive sites in the Philippines? Well we’re not talking about Palawan, Siargao Island is our little well-kept secret.
Numerous flat rocks, coral slopes and deeper spots like overhangs and caves and caverns like the Blue Catheral on the outer reef offer some huge visibility and cater to all skill levels.
When not exploring the seas there is also a multitude to do: from mangrove-exploring, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, hiking and bird watching.
Day 1 Arrive into Siargao
At Siargao, another represenative will be at the airport awaiting your arrival and providing luggage assistance. You will then be transferred to Dedon Island via a 40 minute drive.
Nestled between ancient mangrove forests and the white sands and crystal waters of its own peaceful bay, shaded by groves of coconut trees and scented by the extravagant flowers blooming in its tropical gardens, the Dedon Island resort is a world unto itself, a barefoot oasis, naturally sheltered from the raw tropical wilderness all around.
Stay: Dedon Island
Day 2 - 5: Diving & Other Activities
You have the days at leisure to indulge in the following activities:
- Scuba-diving at some of these rarely-visited sites: Seeco Reef Coral formations, Cathedral 270° on the wall of Cloud 9, Shark Point Coral Rock, Antokon Tower, Dako Coral Beach and the La Janosa Coral Hill to name a few.
- Snorkelling the outer islands such as Halian, Lahanusa, Anahawan or Corregidor for a full day out including a picnic lunch on beautiful Mamon Beach
- A full day’s trip out to Sohoton Cove, an inland wilderness of interconnecting lagoons encircled by soaring cliffs of virgin jungle, is a must-do. Nearly 2 hours away by boat, your excursion included paddling, swimming, caving, rock-jumping, a hearty lunch on the boat and snorkelling on the outer reef before returning home at sun down.
- Learning to surf at the resort and then venturing out to Cloud 9, one of the worled’s legendary surfing breaks, famed for its perfectly-shaped barrel.
- Deep-sea fishing along the Philippine Deep, a 1,300km-long trench containing the third deepest point on Earth.
- Island hopping around the bay and beyond, starting with drinks under an umbrella on tiny, deserted Pansukian before moving on to Daku for snorkelling, a spot of surfing and a full-picnic on its picture-perfect beach. Time permitting, move on to Casulian, La Janosa, Mamon or simply back to nearby Guyam for a drink.
