Ticao Island Classroom Dive
I took the photos on this page at the Ticao Island Classroom Dive. Ticao Island diving in the Philippines has a great diversity of habitats (soft sediments, corals, seagrass, etc.). Additionally, the Philippines has more coastlines per unit than any other tropical area on earth. The Philippines has long been recognized as the world’s center of marine biodiversity. Also, in these islands, five of the seven sea turtle species known to exist in the world today occur in the Philippines waters. We also found the Philippines is one of the most reliable spots in the world to encounter the gentle giant whale shark.
