For scuba divers is the Philippines what the Netherlands is to ice-speed skaters, Hawaii to surfers and Nepal to mountaineers. You must visit this place at least once, to get the real heart of sport. The country is a veritable smorgasbord of world-class dive sites set in a lush tropical environment with all the trappings you could ever wish for.

The Philippines is a scuba diver’s dream come true. The 7,107 islands present an underwater wildlife extravaganza, so spectacular that divers return for an average of 10 trips each and warm waters because the good weather.

Dive into crystal clear waters underwater visibility of up to 60 meters, discover shipwrecks, cliffs covered with sponges, colorful corals, gorgonians, turtles, sharks, rays, and even the very rarely seen exotic fishes like Spanish Dancer, harlequin ghost-pipefish, camouflaged frogfish and fire gobies. Thanks to the convergence of the nutrient rich waters of the Pacific Ocean, South China Sea and Celebes Sea, you will be a spectator to an aquatic symphony of over 2,000 species of marine fish as well as more than 400 out of the 500 known coral species in the world.
