Southern Leyte: this is a little-known gem of a place on the eastern side of the Visayas. There are few dive centres there, so you’ll have most dive sites to yourselves! You’ll find some spectacular hard coral reefs, fantastic walls, slope and muck diving sites. In addition to a vast array of both soft
and hard coral, Sogod Bay supports aquatic life from tiny pygmy seahorses, nudibranch and pipefish to sea turtles, frogfish, octopus, and even, at the right time of year, whale sharks.
Tubbataha: This UNESCO world heritage site is the jewel in the crown of Philippines! Two atols rise from the depths of the Sulu Sea and are only reachable by liveaboard from March to June. This is a good as it gets! Huge walls covered in life, with schools of Jacks, barracuda, and white tip reef sharks all over the place. Megafauna such as 11 different species of shark & wrays, turtles, dolphins & whales, plus 600 fish species and 360 coral species call Tubbataha home
