We're delighted to be representing the Philippine Islands only Cruise Ship company, Discovery Fleet. The Palawan Discovery is a boutique cruise ship that has been completely refurbished, and is now offering a number of fabulous cruises between the months of October and March.

Spaces are limited and fill up fast so be sure to reserve your cruise at the earliest opportunity!

The Cruise Ship

Built in Holland, the ship was a originally three-masted schooner that cruised the Caribbean. In 2006 she was refitted with a more powerful engine, plus modern navigational equipment. She was moved to the Philippines and in 2013, she underwent a USD 1.5 million renovation and was given her new name, "Discovery Palawan".

The Philippines Cruises

There are a number of cruises between September and March, and a variety of options available due to the stop-offs made.

N.B. The longest cruise is 8 days, so if your visit to the Philippines is for a longer duration, let us know, and we'll tailor the overall itinerary to suit. Just let us know where else you wish to visit, or let us suggest!

Divers and Non-Divers Catered For!

The cruises departing from Batangas or Coco Beach, Puerto Galera, are designed to allow Diving enthusiasts to join in. Every day there are itineraries that have been created for both Non-Divers and Divers alike.

Whilst the divers amongst us are exploring underwater, non divers are taken to the various islands to enjoy beach activities, snorkelling, kayaking, local excursions and tours, and even beach barbecues and picnics.

The cruise really does cater for both sides of the coin.
