Blue Ribbon Dive Resort is located on the Mabini peninsular, just a few hours drive from Manila.

Blue Ribbon Dive Resort has moved it’s business from Puerto Galera to Anilao in 2018, seeking better diving opportunities. 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 neighbouring 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 has been totally renovated in 2018, including the addition of a training pool, new bar and restaurant, and a lounge area overlooking the ocean. A fully fitted camera room has been designed by one of the owners, to meet every underwater photographer’s needs.

Blue Ribbon Dive Resort offers PADI Freediving courses, the only resort in Anilao to do so.

We are proud of our high standards of comfort, quality and personal service, while at the same time ensuring a good value for money. In terms of diving and freediving, we have experienced international coaches and excellent local guides, and insist on safety above everything else.

We are trying to be as environmentally friendly as we can be, banning plastic straws and bottles. Each guest is given a free Aluminium water bottle when they check in to the resort.

All of this and the hospitable local Filipino staff will make you feel at home before you arrive!

Dive & Trek house reef, a short ride from Blue Ribbon, is definitely one of our favorites and yet again, another stunning example of how Anilao is not only muck diving (which we also love).

Join us at Blue Ribbon Dive Resort to explore the amazing dive sites of Anilao!

Ligpo Island, a 30 minute boat ride from Blue Ribbon, often missed by other operators, is a stunning example of what Anilao has to offer apart from muck diving.

A huge wall, covered in gorgonian fans, a pinnacle going to 35m, and a pink soft coral garden rich in anenomies and turtles. One of our favorite dive sites that we go back to every week.
