Top travel website lists Tubbataha, The Canyons among world’s top 50 dive sites

Top travel website has listed Tubbataha in Palawan and The Canyons in Puerto Galera, Mindoro as among the world’s 50 best dive sites.

Tubbataha occupies the #8 spot, after Barracuda Point in Sipadan, Malaysia; Yongala in Queensland, Australia; SS Thistlegorm in the Red Sea, Egypt; Blue Corner Wall in Palau, Micronesia; Richelieu Rock near the Surin Islands, Thailand; Gordon Rocks in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador; and the Great Blue Hole in Belize.

According to the website, “The main advantage to diving at Tubbataha is that the water is exceptionally clean, so the marine life lives much longer, making it grow to silly proportions.”

The Canyons, meanwhile, is listed as #45. It was cited for its “explosion of coral and plant life including beautiful delicate gorgonian sea fans and hollow barrel sponges; look inside for critters lurking within.”
