The Tubbataha Reef Natural Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which supports over 350 species of coral and almost 500 species of fish. It encompasses almost 100,000 hectares of Marine Protected Area and is known worldwide as one of the best spots for diving with sheer vertical coral walls over 100 meters high.

The reef is approximately 180 kilometers from Puerto Princesa in the middle of the Sulu Sea and takes 14 hours by boat to reach, meaning that diving tours are “liveaboard” packages where guests stay on the boat for over three nights. Moreover, there is only a small window each year from mid-March to mid-June when the sea is calm enough to allow tour boats to operate.
