Best Time for Scuba Diving

Scuba diving in Boracay is best done during the months of October to May when the weather conditions are most favourable. You'll be able to access great dive sites on the western side of the island while the eastern side is best explored between June to September.

Angol Point is one of the easiest dive spots to delve into so it's perfect for those looking to do their first scuba dive in Boracay. Another popular dive site is Laguna de Boracay where you can occasionally spy sea turtles close to the coral gardens; the shallow sea is perfect for some underwater macro photography, too. For those who are more experienced, scuba diving in Boracay also presents challenging sites like the Camia II wreck where you can see bluefin trevallies, scorpion fish, batfish, and more. Because of the strong current and the depth, Yapak dive site is also reserved for experienced divers but it boasts of pelagic fishes, occasional sharks, and even manta rays. The Channel Drift is also best done by a skilled diver but it offers the fairly unique opportunity to try drift diving in Southeast Asia.
