Do you want to escape from it all on your next scuba diving holiday? Then try Tubbataha on our stunning Philippines liveaboard. Tubbataha is a remote national park in the middle of the Sulu Sea with diving that is off the charts. This is a scuba diving holiday of pure escapism and breath taking moments underwater and only dived when at its seasonal best (Mar-Jun). Home to literally hundreds of fish, shark, dolphins and coral species, the Tubbataha itinerary will deliver inspirational diving, all from the comfort and luxury of your liveaboard home.
With an average of 3-4 dives a day the thrills will come in thick and fast. Tubbataha itself is comprised of two reefs, both of which can be diving in a number of ways. If you hanker after big fish head to the northern tip of the north or south reefs where greys, black tips and white tips patrol the drop off. Eagle rays, manta and sting rays all swoop around you (especially on the south reef!). Vast gorgonians sway in the currents. Trevally, tuna and barracuda just add to your pelagic tally. Where the currents are a bit gentler you find both green and hawksbill turtles. Move round to the south sides of both reefs to hunt for some of the macro life. Pygmy sea horses are there - we promise! Just relax as you watch small reef fish dance between clown fish protecting their anemones. Hunt out some of the rarer species such as leaf scorpion fish. It is quite remarkable just how diverse these two reef systems really are!
Tubbataha will suit any diver looking for fresh thrills but make sure you book early - these trips fill fast! If you want to get your nerves tingling again with excitement, then try this itinerary for it's remote nature and daring drop offs. Photographers will find a mass of subjects, both big and small. The diving is extremely varied in scope but Tubbataha itself can be quite challenging with huge drop offs and fast currents. This itinerary hits all the hot spots and in a single liveaboard holiday you will visit what are arguably the Philippines' most exciting dive sites. Let Scuba Travel jet you off on a diving holiday that will make others green with envy.
There are a select number of 9 night trips available, which also include time snorkelling with whalesharks at Oslob (Cebu) as well as the Tubbataha marine reserve.
