I have been diving with a group of divers from Toronto, Canada and Aquarius Diving Center organized the trip. We have been staying liveaboard at the Atlantis Azores with a friendly crew. I must compliment all crew members for doing a fantastic job, above and under the water. We all had a fantastic time aboard this very comfortable boat.
Tubbataha Reefs is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in the Sulu Sea east of Palawan. The region’s remote location, along with challenging access, makes it one of the healthiest and least exploited areas of reef in the World. Throughout the 100,000 hectares of the spectacular reef system, divers lucky enough to visit will discover a wide array of pristine coral gardens mixed with steep walls dropping down into the deep blue.
Tubbataha park area is an important fish spawning and breeding site and is significant in terms of global marine life species diversity and richness. I have been diving in many hot spots in the World, like the Red Sea, Raja Ampat and Cocos Island, and I have to admit, Tubbataha is worth visiting! Tubbataha is a different experience. The magnitude of marine life is worth exploring! This is one of the last frontiers, where one can enjoy nature events the way they were enfolding thousands of years ago! Unspoiled and untouchable!
Coming to the Tubbataha requires commitment, but the reward is out of this World. Tubbataha is accessible for divers only a few months a year. Usually from March until the end of June, because this is an open ocean with no protection and only during those months is safe to venture here. Tubbataha is arguably the most bio-diverse scuba diving destination in the Philippines. Tubbataha Park often ranks as the number one diving destination among the Best Diving places in the Philippines.
