UNESCO World Heritage Site in Palawan

Tubbataha Reef National Park is a protected marine and bird sanctuary located in the middle of the Sulu Sea.

The surrounding waters feature a variety of untouched marine life.
 
The Tubbataha Reef National Park was established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993 for its unique atoll reef and rich range of wildlife including, birds, marine turtles, whales, sharks and numerous other species of fish. In fact, the park itself and the wider Coral Triangle area are home to around 40% of the world’s reef fish.

Diving at Tubbataha Reef

This site was discovered by divers in the 1970s and is still one of the most impressive dive sites in the world thanks to its remote location in the Suru Sea. Moreover, due to the isolated location of the park, divers can only access Tubbataha Reef National Park by a liveaboard boat, which takes around 10 hours from Puerto Princesa.  

Divers are also advised to visit during the dive season, which runs from mid-March to mid-June. Divers must ensure they follow the park regulations and pay the park entrance fees to support the continued conservation of the site.
