I have always been hasitant to write a review of the tubbahata Reef. My motives are pure selfish.
I have dived the reef twice on livaboards and after 20 years of diving all over the world, this reef easaly holds the number spot in diving experences. No kidding it's that good. Better than the Great Barrier Reef, Galapogos,and Sidapan which are all top notch. You can only get out there for 3 to 4 months a year due to the high seas in the area. Due a livaboard for a week whitch means fives days of diving. These trips can fill up fast sometimes years so book early. The Philippino Coast Guard will only allow so many liveaboards to go per year. This is a protected site. Do all the reading on line about this spot and try not to spread the word. This is truly one of the Virgin div sites left on the planet.
