featuring Crystal Blue Resort, Anilao
Manila overnight plus nine (9) nights at the resort, April 7-17, 2014
from $2215 per person (airfare to Manila is additional)
Anilao Diving -- Anilao is known as a critter diving destination, but it offers more than that. You will have the opportunity to see an amazing array of unusual marine life from myriad nudibranchs to hairy frogfish, and ghost pipefish to blue-ringed octopus. Anilao compares very well to the creatures you might find in Lembeh Strait, Indonesia. But the fact is that, in addition to pure muck diving sites, Anilao has many dive sites with beautiful hard and soft corals, the full array of tropical reef fishes, blue water, and pelagic marine life as well. Kept alive by good current flow, Anilao is a wonderfully healthy and comprehensive dive destination with much to offer all divers, snorkelers, and underwater photographers.
"The night dive at Anilao's "Town Pier" with Crystal Blue Resort should be mandatory. We were all breathless with fabulous finds our group of four made: blue-ringed octopus, mimic octopus, two more octopi, squid, bobtail squid, warty yellow frogfish, crabs, ornate ghost pipefish, two cuttlefish mating, translucent snail, eight little pipefish all encircling each other, waspfish, tiny black frogfish, baby cuttlefish, a fire urchin, and so many other critters we couldn't even identify!
The Crystal Blue Resort was beautiful and offered topnotch guides, fantastic food, very comfortable rooms with super A/C, and a perfect ending to a perfect trip."

Crystal Blue Resort -- Crystal Blue Resort offers a finer quality of lodging perfectly placed to experience Anilao's excellent scuba diving and underwater photography opportunities. Located on a prime land at Bagalangit Bay, Anilao (Batangas, Philippines), this low-rise resort embraces beautiful architecture and designed to blend with the local landscape and culture. Providing quality without formality, guests enjoy open-air dining and oceanfront living. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and beverages service are available in all rooms and public areas. Menu items include seafood, Continental, Oriental and Filipino Cuisine. At day's end, a nice Jacuzzi provides relaxation and refreshment as you prepare for the next day's diving adventure.
Trip Leader Jesse Cancelmo -- This trip is unusual for Island Dreams in that owner Ken Knezick will not be the tour guide. With 35+ years of experience as a scuba tour group leader, Ken takes his duties very seriously, and there are few people he would trust with Island Dreams' reputation for service and safety. In this case, we are fortunate to have an excellent substitute. Jesse Cancelmo is extremely well-traveled and a highly experienced diver and scuba tour leader. He is also a widely-published writer and underwater photographer, as well as being a Nitrox instructor and certified in cave diving and tri-mix. Adding to the benefits, Jesse will be assisted by Crystal Blue Resortís in-house photo pro, Mike Bartick. We are confident that Jesse and Mike will do their very best to assure you of a safe, successful, and all-around fun dive trip to Anilao.
