Club 25 is our way of honouring the continuous excellence of the diving community over the last quarter of a century. In the run-up to the 25th edition of ADEX, we will be profiling each member of our Club 25. Today, we profile Atlantis Dive Resorts and Liveaboards, one of the best dive resorts and liveaboards in the world.
Founded in 1994, Atlantis Dive Resorts and Liveaboards celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. With a vision of outstanding value and first class service on top of some of the most bio-diverse dives in the world, it did not take long for Atlantis to become synonymous with first class Philippines dive vacations.
From the beginning, with first their resort in Puerto Galera, Philippines and then their second resort in Dumaguete Philippines, partners Andy Pope and Gordon Strahan have focused on the thousands of details it takes to exceed their guests’ expectations. What is quite unique is still offering a value that allows most to experience the Atlantis difference.
In 2010, Atlantis added the luxury Liveaboard Atlantis Azores which quickly became the top Liveaboard in the Philippines. In a market of coastal rated boats, their blue water rated yacht, the Azores, not only has the rating to handle offshore offerings like the world famous Tubbataha Reefs, but to do so in first class quality, safety and comfort. Atlantis Azores offers four different exciting itineraries including Apo Reefs and Coron Wrecks, Tubbatah, and two Visayas itineraries including Bohol and around Cebu island including Malapascua. Atlantis also has two annual transition trips, and their real time availability is accessible on the Atlantis website.
Both Andy & Gordon are grateful to the many thousands of guests who have helped Atlantis reach their success and hope to see them back at the resorts soon. They also look forward to another 25 years of welcoming guests to the Philippines and exceeding their expectations with the dive vacation of a lifetime.
