As you can see o the Google Map below, Tubbataha Reef Marine Park is an isolated location in the middle of the Sulu sea, far away from any island or beach.

So there is no Dive Resort from where you can start your dives on Tubbataha Reef going there for a day trip.
Tubbataha can only be visited on a liveaboard boat (and only in the time from March to June).

Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park lies in a unique position in the centre of the Sulu Sea, and includes the Tubbataha and Jessie Beazley Reefs. It protects an area of almost 100,000 hectares of high quality marine habitats containing three atolls and a large area of deep sea. The property is home to a great diversity of marine life. Whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles and Napoleon wrasse are amongst the key species found here. The reef ecosystems support over 350 species of coral and almost 500 species of fish. The reserve also protects one of the few remaining colonies of breeding seabirds in the region.

"A 40 min nature / travel documentary about a trip to this UNESCO World Heritage Site - Tubbutaha reefs in the middle of the Sulu Sea, Philippines.
It is my first attempt at a full length documentary, I completed it in 2006 and gave it to friends on DVD but then lost the file and before that was never able to upload it in full to youtube. Hope you find it interesting and informative.
Within the documentary as a whole are also some interesting short sequences that cover topics such as :
- the first time you see a shark
- the threat posed to turtles by marine waste
The documentary is mostly influenced by Jacques Cousteau and David Attenburgh style narration although in places it does go into more modern style of music/visual a bit like Luc Besson's Atlantis, but personally I love documentaries that tell a story.

Video: LEGACY Tubbataha Reefs Seq

A rare but fascinating look at one of the Philippines' most spectacular locations.
The Tubbataha Reefs National Marine Mark, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a premiere destination for international diving enthusiasts, remains one of the world's most fragile ecosystems which needs to be protected.
This 6-minute video was lifted from the landmark documentary, "LEGACY:Philippine World Heritage Sites," produced and directed by Butch Nolasco. The project was made under the auspices of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in 2003.
Written and presented by Architect Augusto "Toti" Villalon, one of the Philippines' leading heritage conservation advocates. Underwater videography by Gerry Reyes, assisted by Norman Songco.
