About Diving in the Philippines

With more than 7,000 islands and around 22,500 miles of coastline, it’s little surprise that the Philippines boasts nearly as many dive sites as former first lady Imelda Marcos had shoes!

Underwater, divers are welcomed by a staggering array of variety, both in the type of dive sites and the abundance of marine life.

Divers with a penchant for the weird and small should remember their macro lenses because with mantis shrimp, pygmy seahorses, and nudibranchs aplenty, diving in the Philippines is a slug lover’s dream.

That’s not to say the big stuff isn’t here, it certainly is. Mantas, sharks, mola mola, rays and pelagic hunters all frequent the region.

Underwater, divers are welcomed by a staggering array of variety, both in the type of dive sites and the abundance of marine life.

One for your diving bucket list, Amos Rock is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a reputation for its marine life. The only way to reach this Philippines dive site is by live aboard, permittable exclusively between March and June.

This limited access is sure to make you feel like a VIP. Amos Rock is a gem of the Tubbataha Reef and with dives conducted between 6 and 70 meters (19-229 ft), it can be enjoyed at different depths. Watch out for strong currents on the deeper end, these can be unpredictable. (Decompression Training & Certification is available!)
