What an exciting week it has been with the Objectif Atlantide event happening here. It was something completely new for us to have and there was a lot of buzz and excitement around the resort as the participants we’re trying to win the game.
Here are the first 3 teams of the 2019 underwater survey of objective Atlantis in the Philippines:
Team Scubaland for the first place, team Spirit of Diving for second place, and team The Bubble Heads for third place. The result between team 1 AND 2 is played in a pocket handkerchief
All the teams discovered the underwater environment of the Puerto Galera region while having a lot of fun solving a police riddle. A very big congratulations to Aurélie Pineau and Pauline Thomas who have won for the second year in a row.
We were thrilled to have two of the world’s renowned French Freedivers here with us for Objectif Atlantide Philippines 2019, Alice Modolo and Arthur Guerin Boëri.
Alice Modolo partnered with Giullaume Nery in his popular video “Naughty Boy” and Arthur Guerin Boëri is world record holder in Dynamic – amazing 300 meters!!
