Description

Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is a PADI 5* Dive Resort in Anilao, Philippines. 

Having recently moved from Puerto Galera to Anilao, the team came in search of the best muck diving they could find! As a result, this is a gem for all underwater photographers. 

The dive center has a large camera room with personal stations and storage. There is also a training pool as well as an air-conditioned classroom. 

A full range of PADI recreational courses are available. This is a great place to continue your dive education due to the warm, relatively calm and clear conditions year-round.
