Blue Ribbon Dive Resort moved it’s business from Puerto Galera to Anilao in 2018, seeking better diving opportunities. With 10 years of experience running a busy resort in PG, the business moved to Anilao with a lot of its old staff, bringing with it the family feel, along with professionalism and care.
Anilao is often debated to be the top dive destination for muck diving, with a vast number of critters most sought out by underwater photographers. Anilao and the neighboring Tingloy island also has world-class Coral reef diving, with some exceptional sites close to the resort and a little further away. The Verde Island passage brings clear waters to Tingloy, and its famous Sombrero island, offering some amazing coral dives with some exceptional visibility.
Blue Ribbon Dive Resort caters to all divers, even soon to be divers. We are a PADI 5 Star dive resort that trains students up slowly and at their own pace, making sure they are safe competent divers by the end of their course. We have multiple full-time instructors, and full time certified divemasters…which is rare in Anilao.
We also largely cater for regular fun divers looking to get wet and see either the coral or macro, as well as the underwater photographers, where we can organize private spotters and allow photographers to improve their art.
Jon, one of the owners is a professional underwater photographer and videographer and has worked on a few Blackwater Documentaries, as well as won a few photography competitions. Jon teaches underwater photography classes and is always around to give some hints and tips. We also have a nice size camera room to look after all your camera gear, with aircon, and air guns, and also a dehumidifier fridge.
