The Philippine Dive Safari is a consortium of Dive Shops, Resorts, Liveaboard and
transportation services that are combined in a manner that provides a 2 week dive
filled trip to 4 very different and fantastic dive locations in the Philippines.
The key value to the dive traveler is that EVERY DAY IS A DIVING DAY even when changing
locations. Travel, including to remote locations, is planned so that there is still
a minimum of 2 daily dives (and this only impacts 2 of the 12+ diving days).
The Philippine Dive Safari is a guided diving tour. There are 1-2 PDS guides with
the group thru out the safari providing consistency of contact for the dive traveler
and coordinating services and logistics for the group at and between all locations.
The guides primary responsibility is to make sure your trip is great in every way.
While the guides are divers and logistics masters, at each location we take advantage
of the expertise of the very best and most experienced Local Dive Operators to provide
a rich and safe dive travel experience.
Mark has intensively traveled to and on multiple occasions lived in the Philippines
over the past 10 years on a variety of electronics engineering and manufacturing
programs. During this time he has taken every opportunity to dive all around the
Philippines (see map of Mark’s dive excursions).
The Philippine Dive Safari is the result of his love of diving the Philippines, his
extensive experience with supplier qualification & partnering and designing simple
solutions to seemingly complex logistics situations thru out S.E. Asia.
“The full richness of diving the Philippines requires experiencing multiple locations.
We have to make it easy.”

We just finished eating lunch at Milky’s (center) mother’s house (background) and
are now going to dive a place no one has reputedly dove before, in search of some
of Yamashita’s Gold.
I do not think the Japanese hid any Gold underwater. But diving an un-dived place
