Family run operation with the best dive gear possible for rent Reasonably priced booze on board – or bring your own if you want to lug the load Tubbataha is an expensive trip due to distance – but not with us. Sakura is a smaller boat with a trimaran hull allows here to be more economical than the larger boats. Our trips are at a lower rate than others who may dive a day longer but are WAY above in price. It does mean lesser amenities, but it leaves you more money to spend on other parts of your holiday.
This is what some guests have referred to Sakura as. As she is a trimaran, she rocks and rolls less in the swells and waves than mono-hulled vessels. This allows our guests who don’t have the best “sea legs” to not be prone to motion sickness/sea sickness as much as on other boats. For those who still get wheezy, don’t worry, there is lots of medication on board.
5 Star Treatment Get treated like a king. All your dive gear is kitted up by our dive crew and loaded on the boat. On finishing the dive – the dive crew will take your gear while you are in the water. On the boat, tanks are changed by them and reloaded on the chase boats. No work on your part! Want a chilled beer, just holler! Want to bring your own booze – no problem Nice home style food, lots of snacks and fantastic desserts…. yum! Sample below..
Most of our sleeping arrangements are in dorm-style bunks, this means, that you get to interact and share the space a lot more with other guests. On many occasions, long-lasting friendships are forged while aboard. The relaxed atmosphere after dives and the large open decks mean you get to relax with new friends after a day of diving the pristine reefs of Tubbataha. [envira-gallery id="472"]
