On September 8-11, we will have our second Culion Expedition.
Culion, Palawan boasts a rich marine biodiversity. It may have been known for its history of being a leper colony, however this year we will try to change this stigma. This beautiful laid back island has been 100% leper-free for many years now. In fact, the cure for leprosy was discovered there! Doctors from all over the world travel to see and learn from Culion's sophisticated hospital. The illness was both a curse and a blessing; It prevented people from going near its reefs, thus keeping it pristine and breathtaking up to this day. Recently, Kawil Tours teamed up with Reef Nomads to create a skin diving tour package. Together, we explored the best possible skin diving sites and are sharing this wonderful experience with you for the first time.
For this expedition we have an all-in package of 13,000 pesos that DOES NOT
