TRAVEL & CRUISE LOGISTICS


For most Visayas trips your airport will be Cebu (CEB).  For the trips which begin or end in Dumaguete, you will fly in and out of different airports - Cebu (CEB) for one end of the tirp & Dumaguete (DGT) for the other end of the trip.  For Tubbataha trips, your arrival & departure airport will be Puerto Princessa (PPS).   Many major airlines fly into the Philippines including: Korean Air, Cathay Pacific, Delta and Philippine Airlines.

You will be met at the airport at 4 pm  on the departure date by a staff member of the Aggressor and transferred to the yacht.  We strongly recommend, however, arriving at least one day earlier to make sure you're rested & have all your bags.  We can recommend options for first night and extended stays.

All guests must be on board by 6 pm for the yacht briefings, dinner, then departure for the first night's anchorage.  Your first dive will be the following morning. On the last diving day, the yacht will return to port in the afternoon. Dinner will be ashore & the staff will recommend restaurants close by. This is the only meal not included in the price of your trip.  Checkout time is at 8 a.m the next morning and transportation will provided to the airport after a continental breakfast.
