Welcome to Philippines
This is a friendly country made up of 7,110 islands.
The The Philippines is an archipelago bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the East, the Bashi Channel to the North, the Sulu and the Celebes Seas to the South.
The Philippines experiences two “seasons”:
- The North East monsoon, from November to April
- The South West monsoon, from May to October
The Philippine islands can be divided among three main groups and those islands/ports of particular interest to visiting super-yachts.
Each of these three areas is serviced by corresponding entry ports.
- Luzon – the northernmost island group, center of government, history and economy and home to the capital.
Port of entry: Subic Bay or Port of Manila
- Visayas – the central island group, heart of the country’s antiquity, nature and biodiversity.
Port of Entry: Cebu
- Palawan island group, which showcases the Philippines’ indigenous and rich cultures excellent diving and stunning limestone rock formations and lagoons
Port of Entry: Puerto Princessa
Our Central office is in Makati City Manila.
We have a local staff of four that are highly mobile in order to travel to the respective Ports of Entry / Exit for all levels of clearances and services.
Any provisions we provide come from Manila as well. We have excellent affiliates with all five star produce and food suppliers.
Our Philippines service model is closely follows the Indonesian model. That is; intimate cruising ground knowledge and guest activity presentation with a resultant high level of logistic and manpower resources to support any yacht or Captain looking to provide memorable guest programs.
Our team leaders can construct comprehensive cruising plans taking in all of the unique features the Philippines offers.
To support this we have an excellent network of local guides.
We also have access to air plane and other logistic services not usually available to the general population.
A later phase in our development will be facility management and charter operations.
