The island of Palawan is the second largest province in the Philippines and is home to fringing reefs and coral atolls with a huge expanse of marine wilderness waiting to be explored.

Diving highlights of this region are Coron Bay for the eleven WWll wrecks and Tubbataha Reef which is explored by liveaboard departing from the bustling town of Puerto Princesa. Diving Coron is accessible all year round although Oct-May is when the sea is at its calmest. Tubbataha is only accessible by liveaboard from Feb-Jun.

Described by Jacques Cousteau as ‘the most beautiful place I have ever explored’, Palawan is a mountainous region with plenty of opportunity for trekking and for nature lovers to explore the wilderness. Due to the nature of the geography and the history of the region, the local people are interesting and friendly as well as being excellent seafarers.
