Diving around Carabao, Romblon near Boracay
You’ve probably never heard of this place and when you look in the travel guides about the Philippines, it is never mentioned but we tell you: this land is true paradise if you are looking for authenticity and nature. Carabao Island is beautiful and wild on land, but it is also stunning underwater. It is surrounded by beautiful coral reef, which make it a very attractive, yet unknown diving destination in Romblon. Unlike the nearby Boracay that has been dived by hundreds of people everyday since many years, the island of Carabao, part of the Romblon province, is out of the beaten track, far away from mass tourism and barely had any diving operation until now. We can guarantee that you won’t see anyone else during your time underwater and you will have unique souvenirs to share when you get back home. The dive sites around Carabao are a variety of hard and soft coral gardens, slopes, shallow walls, deep walls and caverns.
Dive Carabao Island in Romblon and discover a new destination of the Philippines near Boracay, yet so different and unique.
You want to explore Carabao underwater but you are not a diver?
If you are not certified yet, we can teach you and turn you into a certified PADI diver in 3 days through the PADI Open Water Course. Being located inside the best resort on the island, we can enjoy the beautiful infinity pool for your very first breathes before going on exploring the reef on open water dives.
If you don’t have much time but still want to experience what breathing and moving freely underwater feels like, then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving is the perfect activity for you. During 1/2 day, we will teach you the basics and safety of this activity and bring you on the reef for 1 or 2 dives around Carabao Island.
For those already certified who want to enjoy their stay in the Philippines to extend their diving skills, we teach all the range of the PADI courses up to the professional level Divemaster.

Carabao Island has dive sites to suit every level from the newly certified Open Water diver to the most experienced instructor and macro critter freaks on their way to Romblon, Romblon.
A huge variety of sea life can be seen around Carabao: from turtles, tunas, sea snakes, sting rays to the most weirdo critters such as frog fish, robust ghost pipe fish, lot of different species of nudibranchs or the cute bobtail and bottle tail squids on night dive, together with the bright starry night octopus or the freaky stargazer! And of course, all the range of the usual and very colorful reef fishes. The coral reef around here is pretty impressive, as most of it is still untouched. You will not regret to have a look underwater as you will enjoy hard coral gardens on the west side of Carabao and amazing soft coral on the north of the island. One of the most beautiful we have ever seen… really.
Carabao Island is a hidden gem, just a few minutes away from the world famous island of Boracay. It shares its beauty and amazing white sand beaches but remains quiet and untouched and will get you away from the crowd.
It’s the perfect place to enjoy, disconnect, and relax during your holidays.
