The best scuba dive sites and diving places in Boracay

Our selective list of the best dive sites in Boracay

Map of the best diving site in Bohol and Panglao There is a lot of dive sites in Boracay! If some are for the beginner scuba divers, and some are for the more experienced divers, all the dive sites in Boracay are within the 30 minute ride by boat as Boracay island is not big.

Because we are diving in the tropical waters (warm waters), all the dive sites are just around us in Boracay. But, we should say that all these dive sites are not the most remarkable ones.

At Scotty's Action Sports Network, we have dove every single official dive site of Boracay, and we have discovered many beautiful dive sites which are not so near but are worthy of diving.

These exceptional dive sites can take up to one hour with our speedboat to reach them, that's why we offer a day trip diving safari for these dive places, where we usually do three dives on different sites and go back before dusk.
