Diving trip to the Philippines, liveaboard to Tubbataha reefs National park in May 2025
5 places left!

Experience - A diving trip to the Philippines is something you can do more than once and a liveaboard to the Tubbataha reefs in the Sulu Sea is perhaps the ultimate experience. Here in the middle of the sea  you can experience several different species of shark on one and the same dive. Sharks patrol the reefs and some of the species you may see are whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks, guitar sharks, tiger sharks, nurse sharks, silvertips, various reef sharks and many, many more. Today, Tubbataha reefs offer one of the world's best diving spots, where very few can come every year. The weather here makes it impossible to go for large parts of the year, which means that the reefs thrive and remain in very good condition. Only a few liveaboarders go here each year and it is often fully booked far in advance.

Tubbataha reefs in the Philippines are perhaps one of the world's most talked about diving destinations and there are reasons why. There are amazing coral walls, sponges, black coral and gorgonians extending from steep rock walls, echinoderms, octopuses, crustaceans and an incredible variety of fish color and enliven this environment. You are out in the middle of the Sulu Sea, far away from most things. Getting the chance to come here is incredible because there are very few boats that go here and they are often fully booked well in advance. We have a few places left on a diving trip to the Philippines with liveaboard to Tubbataha reefs, take the chance.

The diving suits you who are going to make your first dives and learn to dive, have reached a stage in your diving career or are a more advanced diver and want a slightly bigger challenge. Diving is also offered for those interested in technical diving. What is characteristic of the diving around Dauin is the muck diving. A special type of diving that is done on desolate bottoms - at first sight but teeming with life. The diving offers fantastic encounters with strange animals that live in this environment. Everything from frogfish and pygmy seahorses to mandarin fish and strange octopuses. But it is not only this diving that is offered, but also a visit to Apo Island is highly recommended. This dive site offers chalky white sand with hard corals teeming with turtles, perfect for snorkelers too. On the outside you can also meet large shoals of trevally.

Tubbataha
The reefs of Tubbataha consist largely of vertical walls rising from the depths of the sea. The shallow reefs that have formed on top of the underwater mountains are where the local fish life thrives. Stingrays, marble rays, spiny lobster and reef sharks are common. Angelfish, butterfly fish, rainbow runners, moorish idols, fusiliers, jacks, snappers and sweetlips follow you as you swim around the reefs. At a majority of the dive sites you can also see large trevallies, tuna, barracuda and gray and white tip reef sharks, while manta rays and eagle rays are ephemeral visitors. Green and hawkbill turtles are the most common turtles residing in the national park. Groupers and wrasse are often seen among the reefs and on a few occasions guests have witnessed hammerheads and silvertip sharks. Tubbataha is a fantastic dive site and many who have the pleasure of diving here say it is among the best dive sites in the world.
