Water temperature does not drop much in the Philippines, ranging from 25 - 28 degrees. Officially there are 2 main seasons in the Philippines - the dry season (October - June) and the wet season (July - September). However, this is a long island chain so it is difficult to generalise - some diving areas will be more sheltered during. The area around Cebu (including Visayas and Malapascua) normally receives less rain, even during the wet season.

Diving Highlights

As the reefs are incredibly healthy, there is plenty of marine life, big and small (but especially the critters). Keep your eyes peeled for:

  • Schooling baracuda, trevallies & sardines
  • Napoleons
  • Giant frog fish
  • Pygmy seahorses
  • Mandarin fish
  • Pegasus sea moth
  • Mantis shrimp

Top dive sites to visit: Apo island, the Lighthouse, Baliscasag, Pescador, Moalboal.

Scuba Travel Tips

A reef hook is handy on some dive sites and is permitted. It is worth having a few USD cash with you as you will normally stop at an island market along the way. Make sure you take some Philippino peso for your departure tax (approx 750PHP).
