These reefs consist of vertical walls or near drop off’s rising out of great depths where hammerheads, thresher sharks and whale sharks can be seen.

Sharks & Reefs


Diving along the walls of Tubbataha brings opportunities to see 11 species of shark, including threshers, tigers, and hammerheads; there’s also a chance of catching whale sharks. It is also known for having the highest known population of white tip reef sharks.

The shallower reefs house reef fish, schools of jack fish, snappers, and barracuda as well as the threatened Napoleon wrasse. It is also here where divers can see manta rays slowly gliding by – or maybe even one of the 13 species of dolphins and whales found in the area.

Tubbataha Reefs

Adding to the exclusive status of the area is the very short diving season. Because Tubbataha is so far out at sea, ocean conditions need to be near perfect in order for dive boats to make the journey safely and comfortably. Tubbataha can really only be dived 3 months of the year – between mid-March to mid-June. During this season, divers can look forward to calm seas, clear skies, and between 30 and 45 meters of visibility.

Even during this time of the year the currents in the area can range from mild to strong and Tabbataha is recommended for experienced divers, some even say divers should have a minimum of 100 to 150 dives under their weight belt before they think of taking on Tabbataha.

So few world-class dive spots are left free of crowds of divers, fewer still that feature such incredible diversity of life. This isolated dive destination has some of the best diving Southeast Asia has to offer and does so in a hard-to-reach area that few divers can brag of conquering.



Liveaboard diving is widely regarded as the ultimate way to experience an unforgettable diving vacation. For many seasoned divers, this type of adventure is essential for exploring remote destinations, such as Costa Rica’s Cocos Islands or The Galapagos Islands. Liveaboard charters offer the unique opportunity to explore vast areas and dive different parts of a country, such as the Maldives or Raja Ampat.

A liveaboard is a purpose-built scuba diving vessel or an existing boat that has been adapted to cater to divers. These trips typically last longer than one night, with the average duration being 7 nights. Liveaboard boats can host between 12 and 30 divers, although smaller and larger vessels are also available. Most liveaboard packages include diving, food, and drinks.


Sharks & whales


Galapagos, silky, oceanic whitetip and hammerhead sharks are common in Socorro, as well as dolphins, whale sharks (best in November) and schools of pelagic fish like jacks and barracuda. The shark dives in Socorro Island are simply world-class, placing them high on our list of best locations for shark diving

Whales and other big marine life

Another “signature experience” at Socorro Island: swimming with a group of bottlenose dolphins that often visit divers and typically make several close passes.

Divers often see large gamefish like tuna, wahoo, and marlin, something few other destinations can offer.

When the water cools during winter months, from December to April, divers are often treated to humpback whale sightings.
