Pili Diving Center
DIVE CENTER IN SOUTH TIP OF TABLAS
The water temperature varies from around 26 Celsius in the dry season to approximately 25 Celsius in the wet season. Visibility is usually good to excellent with the worst visibility still about 10 m and 20 m+ is common. Currents around the island are generally mild and most dive sites are close to the shore.
Diving depths vary from 5 - 100 m and the numerous walls around the island make it possible for novice recreational divers, free-divers and technical divers to enjoy the same dive sites. Reefs around the island are extensive and you can jump in the water almost anywhere and find amazing views. See caves are also common as the island is based on soft rocks.
Right now our diving is based around two areas of Tablas Island; In front Beach of our Resort and in Carabau Island. We offer different diving experiences in each location and it is highly recommended that you spend enough time on Tablas Island to explore both diving areas so you can truly appreciate the beauty of the underwater world here.
The diving here is virtually unexplored and we are continually finding new dive sites. This is diving the way it should be, exploring the unexplored, finding the secrets hidden under the water. While we are more than happy to dive our regular sites we also welcome any diver who would like to help us explore what this island has to offer.
In the Dive Center we have complete equipment for 10 divers. Dive Instructor Nonoy Omugtong with 15 years experience from Boracay.
DIVING FROM PILI BEACH
Diving from Pili Beach Resort is logistically very easy. The home reef in the bay is accessible at any time of the day or night just by walking off the beach and numerous sites can be reached by just a 5 minute boat ride. The furthest site we have discovered so far is about an 30 mins with our Bangka boat away. Cave dive in north tip of Carabau Island. However, the diving here is virtually unexplored and we are continually finding new dive sites.
DIVING ALONG THE SHORELINE UP TO SANTA FE.
The Resort operates a small Bangka boat and a Speed Boat, which can comfortably accommodate 4 - 12 recreational divers. Two dive boat trips run at varying times of the day; where possible we try to dive with the tides and prevailing weather conditions to give our divers the best diving experience. During the surface interval light snacks and hot and cold drinks are provided and are included in the price.
