TUBBATAHA REEF, SULU SEA, PHILIPPINES

TUBBATAHA REEF is a World Heritage Site and is a NO-TAKE  Marine Protected Area covering 96,828 hectares located in the middle of the Cagayan Ridge in Sulu Sea. It is comprised of the Jessie Beazley Reef, the South and the North Atoll. Tubbataha hosts 379 coral species (almost 90% of all the coral species in the Philippines), 481 fish species, 8 shark species as well as several species of resident breeding seabirds. Huge groupers, napoleon wrasses and tunas, grey reef sharks, green sea turtles, lobsters, mantas, marble rays and stingrays, walls of barracudas, snappers and the occasional whale shark and hammerhead sharks can be sighted. Since it is located right in the middle of Sulu Sea, the sea can be very unpredictable. Diving at the Tubbataha Reef can only be done between the months of March to June when the sea is much calmer.
