The myriad of Philippines diving spots includes something for everyone — with easy beach entries for beginners to deep wreck dives, wall dives, and night dives for more advanced divers. A beautiful part of Southeast Asia, the Philippines consists of thousands of tiny archipelagic islands whose waters are home to over a thousand kinds of fish and marine animals. Come along for your initial certification or upskill for a wilder ride in the currents of the West Pacific with scuba in the Philippines.
The Best Diving Sites in the Philippines
Marine enthusiasts will appreciate the pelagic species that frequent Philippines diving spots — including Malapascua in the central Visayas where you can see skittish thresher sharks, majestic hammerheads, and dainty seahorses. In Oslob, swim alongside the community of resident whale sharks for an experience you won’t quickly forget.
For the history buffs, Philippines diving sites like Subic Bay in the Manila region offer impressive views of sunken WWII warships. Subic Bay is also one of the most easily accessible destinations from the Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Further south in Palawan, submerge yourself to depths of up to 66 feet (20 meters) and swim alongside turtles and fish through WWII planes and warships that are now home to soft coral and tropical sea snakes.
