Welcome to Neptune Diving Adventure
Tear yourself away from the stunning setting and underwater awaits a macro wonderland. The marine life is quite unique in the Philippines and with the help of an eagle eyed dive guide, you will encounter some of the strangest and most uncommon creatures. Pygmy sea horses are a highlight and are often spotted hiding amongst the sea fans, tails curled tight. Frogfish litter the reef alongside other more usual camouflage fish. Mandarin fish are amongst the brightest, rainbow colored occupants of the reef. Thanks to the plunging walls that surround the islands, larger fish can also be found. Deep-water channels are both used by migrating whale and threshers sharks, one of many star attractions in the Philippines today.
Water temperature does not drop much in the Philippines, ranging from 25 – 28 degrees. Officially there are 2 main seasons in the Philippines – the dry season (October – June) and the wet season (July – September). However, this is a long island chain so it is difficult to generalize – some diving areas will be more sheltered than others. The area around Cebu normally receives less rain than average, even during the wet season.
The reefs in the Philippines are in top condition, which in turn means there is a lot of marine life to find. The Philippines has awesome pristine walls, muck diving and larger fish like whale and thresher sharks.
