About Liquid Diving Adventures:
Liquid Diving Adventures is a dive travel agency with a true tie to marine conservation. Our sister organization, the Oceanic Resource Foundation ( www.orf.org ) is a US 501c3 non-profit group. A portion of any sale booked through Liquid Diving Adventures is donated to marine conservation projects. Besides our speciality in the greater Caribbean, we also book those unusual locations that we call our bucket list. These are locations that may be remote and are certainly unspoiled, places where the reefs flourish and fish species abound. One example is Tubbataha Reef in the Philippines, probably one of the finest dive sites in the world. We also offer select dive resorts and liveaboards in Fiji, Indonesia, PNG, and the Philippines.
Goal(s) for 2013:
Continue satisfying our past customers and making new dive buddies along the way.
