Dive sites consist mainly of vertical walls or near drop offs rising out of great depths, with shallow reef tops teeming with local reef fish. The angelfish, butterfly fish, rainbow runners, moorish idols, fusiliers, jacks, snappers and sweetlips follow you around, while stingrays, marble rays, spiny lobsters and juvenile reef sharks are also common sightings in many places. There are several species of turtle known to inhabit the waters of this gigantic natural park; the most commonly sighted being green and hawksbill. Large trevally, tuna and barracuda as well as grey reef sharks and white tip reef sharks can be spotted patrolling the reefs on the majority of the dive sites, whilst manta and eagle rays are occasional visitors. Groupers and wrasse flourish here and sightings of hammerheads and silver tip sharks have been amongst the large elasmobranchs spotted by guests of the Siren Fleet during our cruises. In addition to breath-taking dives, you will have the opportunity to visit the ranger station on the North Atoll to learn more about the marine protection of the area.


Dive Sites

Following is a sample of the dive sites which we may visit during your time aboard Philippine

Siren. The safety of our guests is paramount and we always do our best to offer diving at

alternate locations, should we be unable to visit those sites listed below.

Guests are welcome to suggest preferred dive sites to the Cruise Director who will be happy

to accommodate guests’ wishes, providing it is possible and the schedule allows for it.

Delsan Wreck

One of the best dive sites in Tubbataha with big schools of big-eyed trevally, yellowtail

barracuda, great barracuda, dogtooth tuna, giant trevally together with grey reef sharks and

white tip reef sharks.

Washing Machine

A wide variety of colourful reef fish form schools here; from big-eye jacks to tiny orange &

purple anthias, all creating a welcoming atmosphere. Spot the tiny creatures including cowries

wedge themselves amidst the leather and whip corals. It is a great site for turtles, and whale

sharks have also been spotted here.

Shark Airport

Many white tip reef sharks resting at the shallow plateau are typically seen here; hence the

name Shark Airport. Dog tooth tuna, schools of trevally, marble rays, eagle rays, nurse sharks

and batfish all add drama to the stunning reef. Turtles and moray eels are a common sight but

divers should watch out for the triggerfish.

Jessie Beazley Reef

Huge schools of surgeon fish and unicorn fish hover over the reefs, where we commonly see numerous grey reef sharks and huge Napoleon wrasses.

Amos Rock

Moorish idols, sweetlips and snappers all form large schools here, also commonly seen are

white tip reef sharks, great barracuda and giant trevally. When lucky, pygmy seahorse can be

found in the gorgonians.

Black Rock

There is so much to explore at this dive site that we will often spend the whole day diving

here. Schools of surgeonfish, rainbow runners and sweetlips are a common sight. White tip

and nurse sharks are found resting under huge table corals and scribbled filefish, box fish and

leaf fish add to the colour and spectacle of the stunning reefs; a great site for spotting spiny

lobster too!

North East Wall

Adorned with stunning sea fans and colourful soft corals. This wall is super for wide-angle

photography. Schools of bannerfish hover in the blue, turtles bumble along the wall and from

the sandy bed garden eels and gobies emerge.

Staghorn Point

Golden, pinnate and longfin spadefish all form schools along this fan encrusted wall,

meanwhile clouds of purple anthias hover over the fields of staghorn corals in the shallow reef top. Also this is a good site to spy turtles, snowflake morays and spiny lobster.

Malayan Wreck

This reef is the habitat for different trevallies, barracudas, bump head parrotfish, juvenile grey reef sharks with the usual suspects darting around. Marbled stingrays can sometimes hang out here.
