The107-foot luxury live-aboard smoothly weaves its way through a variety of some of the more than 7,100 islands that comprise the Asia-Pacific country, including Anilao, the Visayas Islands and even further afield, west in the world renowned Tubbataha Reef. The boat also does cruises between the Puerto Galera and Dumaguete Atlantis Resorts. The spectacular Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park – whose name in English translates to “a long reef at low tide” – is in the Sulu Sea near the gorgeous island of Palawan. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has also been nominated for one of the new wonders of the world, with hundreds of fish species and coral varieties. Tubbataha is famous for its walls and large numbers of turtles, hammerhead sharks, clownfish, lionfish barracuda, manta rays and moray eels.
