Manta Ray Bay Resort - Manta Mania 2016

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   September 29, 2015 13:22

Manta Ray Bay Resort - Manta Mania 2016

Citizen Science Eco-Tourism Week - February 7-14, 2016

Get involved…! Join a manta ray conservation party on an upgraded luxury vacation package at Manta Ray Bay Resort. Yap is one of several research sites with Manta Trust - for one week leading manta ray and shark scientists will host a "hands-on" citizen science field research symposium and media event. 

“This is an rare opportunity for divers to dive with manta rays together with the scientists who study them. You’ll get to see the type of equipment we use, how we gather information and how its processed. We planned this event to take place during manta mating season, the most active time of year where close interaction with multiple animals is nearly assured - we are hoping to get a lot of valuable information. During the day you’ll dive with mantas and over the pristine reefs surrounding Yap, in the afternoon you’ll attend workshops to learn about megafauna, and in the evening you get to see pictures of these amazing animals. Not only will you be learning about mantas but also their very close relatives the mobula, sharks and other marine mammals. We hope everyone will come away from this experience awed by the ocean and its creatures with a deep appreciation for Yap and love for it’s people and culture."

Join Julie Hartup, Guy Stevens, Vanessa Jaiteh, and Steve Lindfield for a week of diving, symposiums, and hand-on experiences with mantas and sharks around Yap.

Packages are $1699 for standard room, $1799 for ocean view and $1999 for deluxe ocean view. Rates are per person double diver occupancy. Contact us for complete details.

Cassiopeia Liveaboard Red Sea - Review

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   August 16, 2015 08:36

Our divers Gulseren K and Howard C just spent a week, August 1-8, 2015,  on the Cassiopeia in the Egyptian Red Sea. Contact us and we can get you a deal on this ship or the sister ship, the Andromeda. Here's a review from Gulseren….

 

Gulseren K -- Turkey

"Hello Dear Greg
 
I had written you a thank you note but I had forgotten to send it to you :(
 
I was very happy. It has been my second time on the same route and I really enjoyed this a lot more. Boat was very big spacey,  crew was very sweet, diving instructors were very attentive and  experienced and nice. Only critisism I would say was boat could be a little more cleaner. But this boat was much cleaner than the Emperor superior I had used before So I think Cassopeia was the cleanest you can expect in Egypt
 
Thank you very much for everything.. We were very happy with our travel agent too :))
 
Now let us look to next travel. Will you please send me the exact hours of Carpe Vita 30.december.2015 - 10.JAn.2016  tour please. I must know precise hours to get my flight tickets .."
 

Playa Escondida Resort - Sayulita, Mexico

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   August 16, 2015 07:26

Playa Escondida Resort - Sayulita, Mexico

Sayulita is a small town located about 40 km north of Puerto Vallarta in the mexican state of Nayarit. And we are pleased to be booking the Playa Escondida Resort. This spectacular destination is a secluded resort nestled in the hillside on a beautiful sand cove beach, and backed by Bird Canyon. The resort offers 29 unique rooms with beach view, ocean front, garden view, and Bird Canyon view accommodations.

Sayulita - a small town with a very special feel to it. The air is full of beach life, and the streets are full of people enjoying it. Street venders with their colorful wares, shops with their doors open to invite browsing and evening crowds of gringos and locals alike around the central plaza all give life to this village. Whether you are a surfer, sightseer or just curious, Sayulita offers a beach-style laid-back brand of Mexican culture. Slow paced and sunny!

Sun-worshipers, surfers and swimmers all relish Sayulita's beach time. The north facing bay has waves - usually big enough to surf - yet safe for swimming. The mostly sandy bottom makes good wading for the non-swimmer. Vendors walk the beach - hammocks, hats, shirts, silver, jewelry - to mention only a few of the variety of goods. 

Let you heart run wild at the Playa Escondida Resort. Enjoy the beach, hike the canyon, ride a horse, try a stand up paddle board, enjoy a massage at the spa, play golf, experience the whales, participate in yoga sessions, scuba dive, or just do nothing if that suits your desires.

This resort does not offer all inclusive packages but does offer seasonal rates for room accommodations. Rooms range from $275 to $395 for two guests, high season and $195 to $330 for two guests, low season. We are offering packages that include dives provided by Sayulita Dive and Surf. Contact us for discounted packages for rooms and scuba diving.

Banderas Bay and Riviera Nayarit offers a variety of dive sites for all levels from Marietas Islands National Park to the dives off the Bay on Corveteña Island, where you will find a variety of stunning sea life. If you're a experienced diver or never in your life have dived we designed packages to suit.

Dive sites include Marietas Island Underwater Park, El Morro, La Corbetena, Los Anegados, and Carrilleros.
