Philipines Exped – Sports Divers Needed

We’ve just had the following in by email:


This is an outstanding opportunity for divers from all three Services to participate in an expedition to dive the wrecks, reefs and tropical lagoons of Coron in the Philippines.

If you are a minimum of BSAC Sports Diver (or equivalent) and are an aspiring or established wreck diver then the Japanese wrecks located around the remote island of Busuanga are fantastic dive sites. Diving will be facilitated through MDI Divers, a company with a proven track record of meeting the stringent breathing gas regulations associated with Service diving activities.

The Exercise Planning Officer is aspiring to organise 2 x 2 week packages run sequentially over the period 9 Feb to 4 Mar 2016.

  • Group 1 dates 9 – 22 Feb 16
  • Group 2 dates 20 Feb – 4 Mar 16

All possible funding avenues will be exploited with a view to minimising personal contributions. However, to secure your place a deposit of £650 is required and is commensurate with the approximate cost of individual flights. You will need to prove that you have authority to participate from your chain of command.

For more information contact the Exercise Planning Officer, Major D Godderidge RLC before the end of June 2015.
