Boracay is beautiful, both above and under the water. The seas around Boracay harbor more than thirty amazing diving spots, with a surfeit of reefs, wrecks, and rare tropical fish.

Expert and newbie divers alike are well-served in Boracay, given the diversity of diving sites and the number of dive shops on the island. You can choose a diving package with length and intensity depending on your budget and expertise.

Newbies can try discovery dives that require no PADI certification, or take PADI certification courses. Experienced divers can pursue night diving, wreck diving, and advanced open water dives around Boracay and its neighboring islands. If you have the cash and time to spare, go on a multi-day dive safari on a liveaboard cruise to explore everything that Boracay has to offer.

Rates vary depending on the duration of the dive - a short discovery course may cost as little as US$69 or PHP 3000, while a two-day safari might cost US$346 or PHP 15000.
