Exceptional Hiking Sites: Tubbataha Reefs

Diving at Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park in the Philippines offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience for divers due to its pristine marine ecosystem and diverse marine life. Located in the Sulu Sea, Tubbataha Reefs is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a protected marine area. It is home to some of the most well-preserved coral reefs and marine life.

Tubbataha's strong currents make it an ideal location for drift diving. Let the currents gently carry you over the reef, providing an effortless way to explore different dive sites and observe marine life in their natural habitat. The park's remote location has allowed marine life to thrive undisturbed, so get close to the turtles, barracudas, manta rays, and various tropical fish species. A highlight of the dive for shark enthusiasts will be to encounter various shark species such as the white-tip reef sharks, black-tip reef sharks, and the occasional hammerhead shark. If you want to add a bit of variety to your dive, opt for the night dive. Spot nocturnal species, such as lobsters, crabs, and octopuses, and observe the reefs come to life with bioluminescence. Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park is dedicated to marine conservation, hence spend a bit of time to learn about the park's conservation efforts and follow responsible diving practices.

Diving at Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park is limited to mid-March to mid-June, to protect the sensitive marine environment during the monsoon season. When diving, you enter a world that is vastly different from what we experience on land. The underwater realm is filled with mysteries and uncharted territories, making each dive an exploration of the unknown. Take your TWELF-X watch with your dive adventure!
