Dive Information & Itineraries

TUBBATAHA OVERVIEW

No doubt the crown jewel of Philippine diving, Tubbataha is the only Asian UNESCO World heritage site that is marine in nature. Although open year round, the short weather window between late march to mid-June is the only time the park is accessible to divers. This park is guarded by armed rangers 24/7 and year round.  As a result, visitors can expect to see pristine reefs, mantas, schools of fish, turtles, mantas, and whale sharks. 

Giant Sea fans, refrigerator sized barrel sponges and delicate soft corals turn the vertiginous walls into hanging gardens. Invertebrates, sponges crustaceans make the walls look like a masters mural canvas. 

Highlights of this cruise include Shark Airport, which is the reef edge containing coral bommies and sandy patches where white tip sharks can be found lying in the sand, like planes at an airport. Schools of surgeon fish and snappers likewise inhabit the reef top.

Requirement: Divers must have at least 50 logged dives due to safety reasons.
