Worldwide Dive and Sail Partners with Reef Check for Philippines Expedition

\"\"Book your spot today! Worldwide Dive and Sail (WWDS) and Reef Check will once again offer an exciting trip to the Philippines this July 18 – 24 upon the luxury liveaboard yacht, the S/Y Philippine Siren. You will visit the Visayas region, home to some of the best diving in the Philippines, with its nutrient rich water supporting a variety of ecosystems and a wide diversity of marine life. Sites range from steep coral covered walls to gentle sloping reefs and muck diving hotspots. During the tour, you will visit and dive the islands of Cebu, Cabilao, Panglao, Balicasag and Pescador, along with Apo Island marine sanctuary and critter hot spot Dauin.

Reef Check’s Executive Director, Dr. Gregor Hodgson, will be on board to certify interested divers in the Reef Check EcoDiver program, while also giving presentations on topics such as reef survey techniques and Marine Protected Areas.

Reef Check would also like to take this opportunity to thank WWDS’ Siren Foundation for their recent generous donation. Guests on the Siren boats can rent a Nautilus Lifeline, a marine rescue radio with GPS, for a token charge of 1 Euro per day, a charge that goes into the Siren Foundation and is distributed across three marine NGOs (including Reef Check) at the end of each year. We appreciate the continued support of Worldwide Dive and Sail!
