Puerto Galera and Tubbataha Dive Adventure

March 25-April 6, 2024

With over 7460 islands to explore, the Philippines is one of the world's best spots for scuba diving. Sitting in the heart of the Coral Triangle, the Philippines is one of the most biodiverse areas.  During this adventure we'll be headed to two of the sought out diving regions in the Philippines: Puerto Galera and Tubbataha. 

Puerto Galera (Port of Galleons) is situated on the Verde Passage, 150 km (95 miles) from Manila. The peninsula is recognized by UNESCO as Man and Biosphere Reserve and received the award as “The Most Beautiful Bay in the World” in 2005, making it the 32nd bay in the world to bag the prize and only the third in the Southeast Asian region. Recognized by UNESCO as one of the most bio-diverse bodies of water on the planet! It has attracted scientists studying the Eco structure of microorganisms, animals and plants. The average water temperature is circa 28°C/ throughout the year, with excellent visibility. Surrounded by beautiful reefs thriving with marine life, fantastic dive sites famous for diversity are just stone’s throw from the resort, most of them within a few minutes boat ride. 

Tubbataha sits in the Sulu Sea and is in the middle of the Coral Triangle between Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The Tubbataha Reefs National Parks is an UNESCO World Heritage site. The atolls are made up of the North Atoll, South Atoll and the Jessie Beazley Reef to the northwest of the main atolls and are all part of the park. The diving in Tubbataha is seasonal, with opportunities to see whale sharks and mantas early in the season. Tubbataha is accessed via Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
