Huma Island is the perfect staging point for some of the best diving adventures in the Philippines. The resort has its very own Dive Center that offers learning courses, diving escapades and island experience programs, all under the guidance of expert in-house dive instructors.
Guests can avail of diving packages that include equipment rental (air tanks and weights), bangka boat transfers, and a personal guide to the area. Supplementary equipment such as fins, snorkel masks, fishing rods, wet suits, buoyancy apparatus, and diving gear are also available. Booking requires a day’s notice; this can be done conveniently through a personal Villa Host assigned to cater to your needs.
Beginners and seasoned divers alike will find many spots suited to their level of expertise in and around the resort. Huma Island itself is encircled by a shallow reef that is home to lionfish, nudibranchs, crocodile fish, even turtle and rays – a perfect setting for first-timers and fledglings of the sport. For more experienced divers, Huma Island Resort offers adventure packages to some of Palawan’s most famous dive destinations.
Approximately 20 minutes away from the beach resort are the famed coral gardens of Calumbuyan Island. A special challenge and a “must-do” dive is Gunther’s Cathedral, a cave carved into the sheer rock wall of Coron Island, accessible only through a man-sized tunnel 6 meters below the water surface.
For those seeking even greater thrills, there’s the incomparable experience of wreck diving. Huma Island’s location affords access to at least half a dozen Japanese sunken ships and planes from WWII:
- Okikawa Maru
- Irako Wreck
- Kogyu Maru
- Japanese WW2 seaplane
- East Tangat Gunboat
