Diving In Tubbataha

Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park (TRNP) is recognized as being the best diving destination in the Philippines .

 

This 100,000 hectare natural park is only accessible from Late March to Mid June due to sea and weather conditions. 

 

Divers come here for the incredible corals, huge schools of fish and the chance to see lots of sharks and manta rays. Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park is both a National Marine Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was nominated recently as one of the 7 wonders of nature.

 

This is also one of the last places in Asia with guaranteed shark sightings on almost every dive. Expect to encounter  white tip, grey reef, nurse and hammerhead sharks.

 

A Tubbataha  dive safari  on the Discovery Fleet is the perfect way to explore the wonders of this special place and during this period the ship turns into a full-fledged diving live aboard whose activities center around diving exclusively.
