Dive Subic Bay with Vasco’s
Subic Bay in the Philippines offers the only available opportunity to dive on wrecks from the Spanish American War to World War II and after in one relatively small protected bay. As the former site of the largest US Naval base outside of the US and off limits to recreational divers for decades, it hosts some of the best preserved wrecks in a small, well protected area which was off limits to divers until the US handover.
Vasco’s is offering divers worldwide, a unique opportunity to dive and stay in a beautiful waterfront resort. In addition to wrecks, there is a plethora of coral reefs and exotic fish throughout the bay, and the fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Located in a historically rich area surrounded by vibrant nightlife and fine dining restaurants, Subic Bay offers something for everyone.
There are 11 vessels available to dive in Subic Bay, on sites at varying depths, offering s great dive experience for divers of every level. The shallowest wreck lays at 12 metres, while the deepest is 68 metres. Vasco’s Dive Shop is a full service facility, and all patrons are free to tour the museum, which houses artifacts recovered by Brian Homan, Vasco’s founder, proprietor, and world renowned under water explorer. The museum houses rare prices from the first Ming Dynasty wreck salvaged in the Philippines in 1983.
