Diving in El Nido rocks! You could chill forever on those countless beaches. But you don't know what your missing: we visit around 20 dive sites for all experience levels. Shallow beach entries with sea-gras as well as the Dilumacad Tunnel (+50 logged dives). Surrounded by 45 islands the Coral Reefs in El Nido are full of life. We can't guarantee big fish - but we surely look out for it. Best chances for Whaleshark and Manta Ray:  December until May.
