Sarangani Bay

 

Sarangani, as a province, is more widely known because it is the hometown of the Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and is the Tuna Capital of the Philippines. But little do people know that Sarangani province is named after its bay – Sarangani Bay. This body of water has an important role in the country as it is one of the busiest business ports which boasts a beautiful and protected seascape.

Sarangani Bay is one of the underrated dive spots in the country. It was only in 2017 when the Department of Tourism launched the bay as one of the newest diving destinations in the Philippines. This aims to communicate to more people how beautiful Mindanao is. 

There are four main dive spots in Sarangani Bay. Lemlunay House Reef is perfect for night diving where some creatures only show up at night. Tuka Marine Park has a shallow part good for snorkelers and has a rich marine life (parrotfishes, sea turtles, batfishes, etc.) on the deeper end. Maasim Reef is for advanced divers as one will endure strong currents and use a decent life to be able to reach the bottom. The reef has a beautiful coral garden and is surrounded by white-tipped sharks. Lastly, Rocky Beach is probably to easiest diving spot, according to divers. Rocky Beach is home to lots of colorful fishes and colorful sea fans.
