About Us

In a tropical, oceanside setting, Crystal Blue Resort is a full time SCUBA diving resort year-round, perfectly placed to experience Anilao's excellent scuba diving and underwater photography opportunities.
The dive boats go out in the morning for two dives. After lunch a single-tank afternoon dive is offered, with the option of a night dive. Most of the diving is to 70 feet or less, and dive times of 70-minutes or more per dive are common.
Crystal Blue Resort that offers activities for non-divers too Hike to the top of the nearby hills for stunning views of Batangas and Balayan Bay, or island hop to enjoy a secluded beach picnic. Launch a kayak from our beachfront and glide over the shallow coral heads of the fringing house reef or relax in our day spa, there is always something to do!
