When is the best time of the year for scuba diving?

Summer in the Philippines is from March through June. These are the ideal months for scuba diving. This is not to say that one cannot go scuba diving during the monsoon months. Rain and choppy waters do not discourage avid divers.

The porters will bring down your bags and gears for you. Don't forget your sunblock, sunglasses, flipflops, visor/hat, lotion.
