Description

WHY CHOOSE A DIVING LIVEABOARD TRIP IN THE PHILIPPINES ?

Yes….you've made the right choice - taking a liveaboard diving trip in the Philippines is probably one of the best holiday decisions you will ever make. We say this with confidence, because of the hundreds of customers that have enjoyed their trips on our boat. So much so that they are still coming back for a third (and fourth) adventure on Rags II.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Rags II is based on a traditional Philippine style 'Banka' with outriggers 27 m long and 4.5 m wide, which makes for a very stable platform to dive from and sleep on. Rags II is fully equipped with state of the art navigation equipment. Radar, GPS, Depth finders, VHF Radio, Digital charts, Satellite Phone etc.

On board, we have 8 spacious berths in 4 x twin air-conditioned cabins; each cabin has individual lockable storage space and drawers for your personal belongings. 

Two bathrooms are available with hot showers with free soap and shampoo so you don't have to bring your own (more space in the bag for dive gear!).Our large Lounge and Dining area seats 12 in comfort and the central TV / DVD / Entertainment system is available for all to use or just laze on the forward Sun Deck to soak up the rays between dives or when navigating.There is also a dry charging table for, cameras, lights, batteries or i-Pods. Our Cook prepares many types of sumptuous Philippine and Western food using local seafood and produce. If you're Vegetarian, please let us know and we'll cater for you especially. Be prepared to diet when you get back home!!

All in all, we believe we offer the best and most varied liveaboard diving the Philippines has to offer without the expense you'd find on a 'top of the range" boat. Rags II has all the comforts you need and the personal touch you hope for. Our customers to date have been no less than delighted after enjoying one of the most relaxing, but exciting dive holidays they've ever been on.
