Dive Destination-The Philippines
If you want diversity, then you have got to try diving in the Philippines. From the temperature of the water to the spectacular underwater views, the Philippines offer it all for your own taking. In fact, as an experienced diver myself, I have no doubts that a diving stint in the Philippine waters will surely top the list of your most memorable dive adventures as well.
Warm Water Temperature
Let’s tackle the water temperature. Being a tropical country, the water temperature in the Philippines is simply divine. It’s like taking a warm bath from the comforts of your own home. During the colder months of December to March, the diving temperature ranges from 22C to 25 C, then it gets a little warmer at 25C to 28C starting April up until November. Trust me, warmer water temperatures like these are a welcome change from the ultra cold temperatures of most dive sites located in North America and in the other parts of the globe. And if you are used to diving in dry suits, then doing so in warm water temperatures like these is just pure bliss.
Why The Philippines?
Dive Destination Philippines-an archipelago of fun! Why Philippines? Comprised of over 7000 islands, the Philippines is home to a massive array of marine creatures. And with so many of those islands left unexplored, the allure that it presents to many scuba divers is the opportunity of discovering a wreck, or be the first to have the chance to explore an underwater reef. The possibilities are quite enticing really. In fact, the world famous Tubbataha Reef is found in the Philippine territory. The reef is so beautiful and pristine that it’s been included in UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites making Tubbataha even more popular to divers than it already is.
What’s To See There?
What can you see while diving in the Philippines? Well, you name it and I’m sure it is covered. You can expect to see and experience first-hand the pristine and temperate waters, drift diving at its best, World War II wrecks, wall diving experience, muck and deep diving, lots of coral gardens and a teeming aquatic environment. Note that most if not the majority of the dives are done by boat, normally a short ride from the resort of your choice. However, if you will not be diving from a boat, you can still do a bit of shore diving. And a tip, if you want to have that ultimate scuba diving experience, request for the boat to take you to areas that are seldom visited by most other divers for that extra thrill of facing the unexplored.
There are a lot of fantastic dive sites located in different parts of the planet, but dive sites in the Philippines are amongst the best out there. It is a totally recommended site for diving enthusiasts from far and beyond. So, if you are planning for your next diving destination, try the Philippines and you will surely have one of the best dive experiences of your lives.
