Diving at Tambuli Airplane Wreck Dive Spot

Diving at the gorgeous Tambuli airplane wreck dive site.

The Tambuli airplane wreck diving site The Tambuli dive site is located at 1.6 kilometers (less than one nautical miles) heading to the 210° on the compass from our Scotty's Dive Center in Mactan (Cebu region).

Tambuli is well known for its plane wreck lying down at around 20 meters (65 feet) which was sunk as a dive attraction. It is now filled with great underwater biodiversity.
The airplane wreck is a little plane. To be more specific, it's a single seater with a twin engine sunken plane.

Tambuli, the dive site itself, is a sloped wall down to 35 meters where the top is made of a sandy sloped plateau with sea grass and seaweeds. Scattered coral formation is making the sloped plateau a comfortable diving zone for beginner divers.

Depending on the tides, a high current can run along this dive spot where some scuba divers can enjoy the drift.
