Full – Contact us to waitlist

Anilao has been the Philippine’s best kept secret for many years.  Just a couple of hours drive from Manila, it is easily reached, and is fast becoming the country’s answer to Lembeh Strait.  This is true true muck diving, and so joins our hugely successful previous Muck Magic I & II trips to whet our critter hunting appetites. Anilao is particularly rich in nudibranchs, many of which you’ll probably never have even heard of before.  With the resort dedicated just to our group, it’s sure to be a fantastic trip!

AMAZING! Richard is able to make scientific talks hugely entertaining . I learnt so much, and every dive after the talks I found myself on the hunt for the new critters I had just learnt all about. Brilliant!



Days to departure








The talks enhance the diving experience and encourage new interest outside the obviously spectacular! Friendly, approachable organisation
