The Best Diving Sites

Filipinos are blessed with beautiful coastal waters, not to mention marine life seconding Galapagos Islands, as Jean Jacques Costeau would attest to. And so when I finally made up my mind to learn how to dive, I thought it best to go to Puerto Princesa where the best diving sites can be found.

True enough, my fear of diving became a thing of the past when I started to see the magical world under water in Palawan. My Jaws movie trauma went away and I became an instant conservationist in my own little way.

Snorkeling is as much fun as diving. In Honda Bay, snorkeling is a breeze because the waters are safe and the Palawe├▒o boat guides serve as captain of the boat, tour guide, and lifesaver. Of course you can’t really be cautious enough but if I can’t go diving, I’ll make sure I go snorkeling whenever I find myself in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

Hi there!
If you never been to Cozumel island, you´re in for a wonderful surprise!! Cozumel is the largest inhabited island in Mexico, is a paradise for diving and snorkeling. The island is surrounded by more than 25 reef formations where divers and snorkelers of all ages and skills from all over the world can enter into a completely fascinating and different world of endless coral inhabited by inmense shoals of colorful fishes. The possibilities are endless for beginners and experts, and i´m sure you will have no regrets to try this amazing lifetime experience. I did it with Duende Tours, a mexican ecoturism agency who provide us all facilities while we were in Cozumel.
