Diving in Tubbataha

The exceptional Tubbataha reef is a World Heritage Site that spoils divers for choice with over 300 coral types and more than 370 fish species, a fact that earns the title of most biodiverse destination in the Philippines.

Marine life is nothing short of impressive here with regular sightings of lion fish, clown fish, manta rays and box fish as well as turtles, sharks, dolphins and barracuda.

Diving in Puerto Galera

It is the perfect destination to begin your diving holiday in the Philippines due to its close proximity to many dive sites just a few minutes from the beach and an abundance of dive tour operators willing to assist with arranging your dives.

For underwater photography enthusiasts, the dive site known as Hole in the Wall is ideal for picture taking. A number of colourful marine species call this area home including puffer fish, parrot fish, frog fish and snappers.

Verde Island

For the more experienced divers, there are a number of exhilarating drift and wall diving experiences to be had thanks to strong currents in the Verde Island channel. The dive site known as Canyons is a very exciting experience allowing divers to drop down into a number of 30 meter-deep canyons teeming with marine life of all shapes and sizes. As you descend, notice the beauty of these canyons which are covered in pink soft coral and gorgonian fans.

Diving in Mactan (Cebu) and Bohol

Diving at Cebu is as simple as booking a day trip from Mactan Island which offers superb diving for advanced divers as there can be strong currents.


If you’re looking for macro diving, Bohol should be at the top of your list. A large reef stretches the 14 kilmometer distance between Anda and Guindelman and offers sightings of humpback parrot fish, pipefish, nudibranchs, seahorses and sea turtles.

Pamilican and Balicasag Islands

The dive sites around Pamilican Island and Balicasag Island will provide you with endless underwater photography opportunities and offer an abundance of marine life variations that you simply need to experience.

One of the most popular dive sites off Balicasag Island is called Diver’s Heaven, and for good reason. The vertical wall at Diver’s Heaven is covered in coral and starts at a shallow 6 metres, but soon drops own to 40 metres. This site offers experienced divers the chance to spot lion fish, barracudas, angel fish and Napolean wrasse.

Diving in Boracay

This small island has a lot to offer in terms of diving, with a variety of options such as wreck dives, thrilling wall dives and beautiful reef dives all within a 10 minute boat trip over the magnificent turquoise waters.

Suitable from beginners levels, Crocodile Island in Boracay is a superb sloping reef that is home to a wide variety of reef fish such as box fish, sweetlips and scorpion fish.

For experienced divers, there are two wall sites known as Yapak 1 and Yapak 2. Both offer exhilarating experiences at a starting depth of 30 meters that quickly changes to a 70 meter drop. Trigger fish, reef sharks and tuna are known to be seen at these dive sites.

Best Season to Dive in Philippines

For a diving holiday, your best bet is to visit the Philippines between the months of November and June. The remainder of the year can be wet with possibility of typhoons, however this doesn’t have too much of an impact on diving enthusiasts.

Temperature and visibility

Water temperatures are warmest in the summer, reaching bath-like status at a balmy 30°C, whereas during the year the temperature can drop to about 24°C.

Dive Centre or Liveaboard?

Dive centres are plentiful in the many popular touristic areas of the Philippines, making it easy to organize a dive. Note that the safety standards of some dive centres may differ from what you are used to, so it’s always best to select carefully.

Wil July 25, 2017


Thinking about doing a divemaster internship to see if I want to go pro.

I’m rescue diver, but need to do EFR, no equipment. About 250 dives, but only 40 odd logged in the one dive log I can find. Will have that up to about 80 by end September.
Only dive once or twice per year at the moment on liveaboards.

I’m up in Angeles and looking to do it this year some time. Want to spend 30-60 days on it, ideally. Although if I can do it in subic in 3 or 4 weeks I could do it next month.

Can you let me know prices, best times and basically anything I need to know in terms of cheap accomodation, other expenses etc.



Rodel July 25, 2017

Hi, Can you email to me the dive rates in Siargo?


Robert August 01, 2017

I am looking to complete my Padi rescue diver qualification in the Philippines this summer (in order to eventually become a dive master and instructor), it is short notice but would course dates somewhere between 8/27 and 9/12 be suitable?

I currently have a Padi advanced open water qualification but in order to complete the rescue diver I would also need to do an EFR course as haven’t done one recently enough.  It has also been some time since I last dived, although I am confident I will pick it up quickly again, will I need to do a refresher course?

Besides the course I also want to dive recreationally as much as possible between the dates given (as far as my budget will stretch). I need to hire equipment as I am currently travelling in Japan without any diving gear, and I would also need accommodation nearby (as cheaply as possible!)

Would you be able to quote me for the rescue diver course and gear hire (if you offer that) and also please suggest accommodation? Including the cost of accommodation for the period, as well as the course and equipment rental, how many recreational dives could I get for a total budget of approximately $1000?

Thank you for your help,



Sacha August 03, 2017

I am a PADI OWSI and interested in PADI cavern specialty instructor course.
I do not have any cave certification at the moment.
As far as I researched, to start a PADI cavern specialty instructor course, I need PADI cavern specialty and cave certification of other organization (probably TDI full cave diver).

I would like to know followings;
• what is the steps to be a PADI cavern specialty instructor?
• Do you offer all the courses?
• which dive site do you offer cave courses at?
• How long does it roughly takes until completing PADI cavern specialty instructor course)?
• How much does it cost me?
• Can I rent equipment? (I probably rent full equipment.)
• what equipment should I bring at least?
• I am planning to start 18 or 19 Sep, is it available for the courses?

Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Karen September 25, 2017

To The Owner:

My name is Karen Hansen (Kasa), and I am a PhD (Anthropology) student from the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.

Last year (2016) I completed 12 months of fieldwork in General Luna, Siargao Island, where I conducted participant observation in the village (Catangnan), as well as surveys and interviews with the expat community. As part of this project, I now have a short follow-up survey which I am sending out to resort owners (such as yourself) who I did not get a chance to interview in person.

In brief: My research project considers the impact of lifestyle migration on the local Philippine community. Part of my project also considers the impact of tourism more generally on the environment. (Please email me for a copy of the Information Sheet if you require more detailed information).

Participation in this survey is voluntary; however it is a short survey that should take no more than 5-10 minutes of your time.

If you would like to participate, please click the link below and you will be redirected to the survey page. You are able to complete the survey on your smartphone, laptop or desktop computer. You must indicate your consent by checking ‘yes’ in the first question. In the second question you will be able to indicate whether you wish to be known by your real name, a pseudonym (false name), or to have no attribution.

Upon completion, just click the ‘Submit’ button at the end.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to your responses.

Also, we are looking for boats to use in our fieldwork, preferably a large one that could accommodate up to 12 pax. Do you also offer boat rentals?

I hope for your kind assistance. Thank you!

Angus January 18, 2018

I’m super excited to be sending this email!
I’m looking to start my journey to Dive Master at the end of April with you guys, and was wondering how much it would cost me, seeing as I have already gotten up to Advanced SSI, with about 10 dives logged. I will need all the courses up to, and including Dive Master, and if I have enough cash leftover possibly even my IDC! I am looking to go into a career in Underwater Videography and I hope this will be the best way to get the experience needed.

I was wondering at the cost of all the courses and fees to get me DM Certified, as well as accomodation costs and how much you’d reccomend as a living cost, judging by how long the course would take.
Also, if you offer an internship to help reduce the price, I’d also be very interested!

Thanks very much and speak soon 🙂

Chantelle February 21, 2018


My name is Chantelle a travel blogger and professional photographer from South Africa. I am planning a trip to the Philippines possibly in April or May, and was wondering if you would be interested in collaborating with me on a tourism campaign. My dates have not yet been confirmed so I am open to suggestions on when you think would be the best time to visit.

The Philippines is breathtaking, so I am looking at spending at least 2months there during this time, to really cover a wide spectrum of all that it has to offer.

I would like to focus on more of the unknown locations, more off the beaten track that visitors to the Philippines have only briefly heard off, or not even heard off. I like to travel as a local, and experience the true culture, and a different side of the Philippines that potential travelers would be interested in.

Would really love to explore ways in which we can work together, and hearing back from you on possible suggestions.

Kind Regards


Simone February 22, 2018

Cobi October 02, 2018


I have some questions regarding the dive courses you offer. My boyfriend and I are planning to move to the Philippines and we would love to pursue a career in diving. We would love to start with the Divemaster with the option to maybe do the IDC as well. We are planning to arrive somewhere mid November, and we’re looking for a good school to start our adventure with. A little bit more info about our dive experience so far.

– I have my Padi Rescue (with 30+ logged dives). I did my rescue last year in June, and have done a couple of dives since. I have my own equipment (except for wetsuit, weights and tanks).
– My partner has his Open Water and has approximately 5 dives (and 5 not logged). He doesn’t have any equipment yet.

We are both interested in doing the Divemaster first, and we would like to take our time for it to make it the best experience possible. Could you give us an idea of how long this would take (going from open water to DM and from rescue to DM – with maybe IDC as well). Also, an idea of the price would be much appreciated.

Do you offer any accommodation or is there an option to find cheap accommodation around?

Another question would be if you could give us an idea of work possibilities in the area afterwards. Is it common for DM or instructors to find jobs in the diving industry around there?

And than last, could we get a bit more information about the area? We both love to surf, so it would be ideal if there were some waves around too 🙂

I’m looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks in advance for all the help.



Belle October 02, 2018


I’m Belle, I just wanted to inquire about the certificate courses from your company. My friends and I wanted to really get into this but found that usually, courses are quite expensive.

Anyway, really hoping to hear from you soon!

I’m looking for entry IANTD tech courses. I was told that both the ANTD Advanced EANx Diver (Maximum depth 42 meters)
and the Advanced Recreational Trimix Diver (Maximum depth 48 meters) are suitable for first tech courses as long as you have the Nitrox and deep certifications. Is that correct?

David October 16, 2018

Hey guys,

I’m a AOW and interested in the following package:

“PADI Specialty Courses, any five specialties 20,000 Php. Or original price of 25,000 Php + 2 free additional Specialties.”

Probably go for Deep Dive, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Navigator, Wreck Diver and maybe search and recovery or something else. I’ve already done with the Nitrox one.

I’m planning on goin to Anilao in late Nov and spend 6 days and 5 nights there. Do you think I can get the 4-5 specialty courses done during that time?

Oh, and is there any package deal with accommodations too?

Let me know. Thanks.

Anderson December 31, 2018

I was thinking about coming to Puerto Galera in mid January, doing a few days of diving, and then going to Apo Reef for a few days. It seems like you offer such a trip. However, there are only two of us. Do you know of any other tourists who would want to do this trip sometime in mid to late January? If so, maybe we could share the boat with them since it appears you need six people to make the trip. Otherwise, we may have to take a liveaboards!
