Tubbataha Reefs National Park became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993 in recognition of the diversity and pristine nature of its coral reefs. But, because it lies 90-miles (a ten-hour steam) from Puerto Princesa, it is only accessible March through June, when the Sulu Sea is calmer.
Tubbataha is an atoll, a volcanic seamount that gradually sank, leaving a circular substrate for coral colonization, now punctuated by a few low-profile sand islands. Home to 359 species of coral, 600 species of fish, 56 species of invertebrates, 12 species of sharks, and abundant populations of two different turtle species, Tubbataha is a nearly 250,000-acre marine preserve. Rangers are in residence year-round to prevent poaching and to ensure the impressive congregations of seabirds, and marine life, are left unmolested.
