About Atlantis Dumaguete

If you have an interest in coral reefs and their ecology, you probably have heard about the "Coral Triangle". This area of the Indo-Pacific is home to the greatest biodiversity of fish, coral and other marine life on the entire planet, and the Philippines comprise the upper vertex of the triangle.

An archipelago of 7,107 islands, the Philippines are a beautiful, LGBTQ+ friendly destination and a remarkable value. We have chosen two outstanding locations to introduce you to this coral paradise, the land-based resort of Atlantis Dumaguete and our optional advanced excursion to the remote UNESCO World Heritage site of the Tubbataha Reefs.

Explore the waters of the Philippines with our group and other LGBTQ+ divers at a PADI Five Star CDC facility and one of Asia's top dive resorts. Atlantis Dumaguete enjoys easy access to Apo Island, one of the Philippines most renowned dive sites. With up to five boat dives scheduled each day, it's easy to get your fill of nitrogen, so bring a dive computer or rent one there. This is a great opportunity to get Advanced Open Water or Nitrox training. Air-conditioned accommodations, five boat dives a day (including night dives), and breakfast, lunch and dinner are included.

Advanced divers who are comfortable in strong currents, ocean swells and remote locations can also join us for our Aggressor Fleet charter to Tubbataha. 

Come experience diving the magic of the Coral Triangle with a friendly and fun group. We are happy to match you with a roommate if you travel solo, or ask us about single supplements if you prefer your own room. It's easy to find a dive buddy if traveling solo.

Getting There

The Philippines is made up of over 7107 islands and is located south of Taiwan, east of the South China Sea with the Pacific Ocean to the east. Philippines Airlines offers direct service SFO, LAX and JFK to Manila then connect to Dumaguete (DGT). Delta, United, Korean Air, EVA, Cathay Pacific, China Air and others offer connecting service to either Manila or Cebu, then connect to Dumaguete on a domestic airline. We anticipate offering group round trip travel from Manila to Dumaguete. If you wish to join that you should plan to be in Manila by noon April 16, or the previous day. Book your return to depart the evening of April 23. If you are joining our live aboard trip to Tubbataha we'll also offer domestic travel as a group in which case plan your departure from Manila for the evening of April 30 or later. 

About Rainbow Divers

Rainbow Divers is a 501(c)7 non-profit mutual benefit organization, and can only organize activities and trips for its members. Trips are priced to break even. Excess cash flow is rebated to divers. Membership is cheap and comes with a bunch of new lifelong friends at no extra charge. So if you’d like to participate in this trip, please join us.

Payments are generally non-refundable. If you sign up and your plans change there may or may not be someone interested in taking your spot. If you cancel without having made all payments it is your responsibility to find someone to pay your obligation in full. It is a very good idea to carry trip insurance to cover such an eventuality.

Trip payments may be made by PayPal or by personal check. PayPal will accept credit card payments, regardless of whether you have a PayPal account. The price is the same regardless of payment method.  Please consider using PayPal, as electronic payment greatly simplifies the work of our volunteers.  Please send PayPal payments to paypal@rainbowdivers.org

All divers on this trip should be comfortable diving in currents and have good buoyancy skills.  Divers are required to carry valid, in-force dive accident insurance, such as Divers' Alert Network (DAN).
