Katipanan

A great dive site for new divers. This site is very easy to dive and the coral and sea turtles will just take your breath away. A beautiful slope that lets you see the far reaching coral gardens and if you look close, you will have the chance to see nudibranchs and a lot of colorful reef fish.

One of the Philippines favorite sites for sea turtles, but don’t forget about the beautiful selection of corals.
