Located on the western coast of Luzon Island, Subic Bay is an extension of South China Sea. Subic Bay was formerly the site of US Navy facility called US Naval Base Subic Bay.
The stars of the diving in Subic Bay are undoubtedly the collection of ship and aircraft wrecks but the marine life is equally as impressive. Look out for schooling sweet lips, jacks, groupers, trevally and glass fish.
Critters are abundant on many of the wrecks, most notably moray and ribbon eels, lion fish, scorpion fish, nudibranch and a plethora of cleaner shrimps and other small crustaceans.
Fly into Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport and there are a range of options to Subic Bay including bus, taxi or private car rental. Subic Bay is a two hour drive from Manila. Buses also operate this route. The Victory liner runs hourly to Subic Bay from terminals in Pasay City, Caloocan, Sampaloc and Cubao.
