Puerto Princesa Bay offers you amazing dive spots where you can encounter all kinds of reef fishes, barracuda, turtles, rays, sharks, whale sharks (only in season), pilot whales, napoleon, dolphins, and if you are lucky you can also meet the famous Dugong (Sea Cow).

Honda Bay (Puerto Princesa) is an ideal place for the one that love to dive in a natural aquarium. Here you can see a lot of reef fishes, turtles, eels, nudibranches and beautiful corals.

Coron Bay is an area in the south of Busuanga, but rates a mention in itself because it's one of Asia's best undeveloped and even unknown wreck dive sites.
Like Truk, a Japanese fleet was trapped and sunk here in 1944, and the wreck only recently rediscovered, offer superb diving.
Today, of the 15 or so wrecks that have been located, at least 10 are divable.

Tubbataha Reef  is absolutely one of the best diving spots in the world and can give you a one of a kind experience. What makes this site so interesting is that you can see different things at every level. Shovelnose rays cruise along its shoulder. Marble rays lay like big pancakes on little ledges. Further down on the drop off, leopard and nurse sharks nap in crevice and under overhangs. Large dogtooth tuna are also often sighted, gliding mysteriously through the clear blue water. White tip reef sharks patrol at all levels, and manta rays are often seen cruising off the reefs.

The season to enjoy this amazing dive spots starts at the middle of March till the middle of June.
