M/Y Resolute - Philippines Liveaboards - Dive Discovery Philippines

M/Y Resolute is a Philppine registered Dive and Pleasure Yacht. She has been cruising in the Philippine waters since 1998 and is currently one of the longest running live-board vessels in the country with a highly experienced crew.

M/Y Resolute has a rare and unique history of being a Russian spy trawler during the cold war. A few years after decommissioning, she was bought and converted into a full service dive vessel. She has been taking divers to the most exciting as well as remote dive destinations in the Philippines for almost 15 years. She has also participated in several underwater archeological missions (Esperanza, Panagatan cays 1999; Hispaniola 2000; Santa Cruz 2001) and surveys (from 1998 to 2011).

M/Y Resolute travels to places such as Tubbataha Reefs and Cagayancillo Islands in the Sulu sea, as well as Apo Reef and Coron, famous for its wreck diving.

The ship is also open for private charters.
