Cuyo Islands to Pamalican Island, Cuyo Archipelago



Trip Days Ports of Call Dates
201 10 Cuyo and Amanpulo Mar 26 - Apr 5, 2018
The Philippines archipelago is comprised of over 7,000 islands that are steeped in a deep marine cultural history. White sand beaches, turquoise warm water, limestone crags and abundant sea life (although heavily fished in some areas) make it a popular vacation destination in Asia. But on the Quest as you know we like to get off the beaten path, you won't find any information on this area in the Lonely Planet guides! How did we pick this small area in the northern Sulu sea then to explore? Between December and March the tradewinds in the Philippines blow harder here than anywhere else, and the Philippines in general get terrific, reliable winds. It's also a safe zone free of some of the troubles that plague the more southern islands in the region.

On this adventure we'll start in tiny Cuyo and then just doddle at our own leisure slowly North west towards Pamalican stopping at the many islands along the way. A perfect place to practice your newest tricks in perfectly flat water in the steady trades.

For those interested, we're ending the trip at the super luxurious Amanpulo resort which has a private beach and lagoon. Maybe a good place to wind down after the adventure!
