This is our third time to dive in Tubbataha and one would think that we would be so accustomed to the surprises that the place offers and it would not merit our excitement unlike the first visit. Yet, Tubbataha never ceases to amaze any diver!!!
Where in the world can a diver encounter several whale sharks, a number of mantas, three turtles, schools of sharks and jack fish, octopi and many more in ONE SINGLE DIVE?!?!?! And thr best thing of all is that this happens dive after dive after dive! That is how great the experience is in this incredible world heritage site!
The reason why Tubbataha continues to be such a great dive site is because it is actively protected for many years. Yet, it has not been completely spared from irresponsible divers. Recently, horror stories about divers from China coming to this paradise have been the talk of the town. Apparently, there are dive boat companies in the Philippines that cater to these Chinese divers. And that’s one reason why many visitors avoid this group of dive boat operators.
Hopefully, the protection efforts will continue and the Chinese divers would learn to respect the natural environment in time.
If it is ULTIMATE DIVING EXPERIENCE you are after, Tubbataha is the world’s finest diving destination!!!
