ABOUT YAPAK 2

Edit

There are certainly many places to dive in the Philippines, but few match the combination of beauty and visibility of the Yapak 2 dive site located off the island of Boracay. For many scuba divers, this is one the most visually stunning sights in the region. It is also one of the easiest for new divers to see thanks to the unique structure of the Yapak 2 area.

The Yapak dive site consists of both Yapak 1 and Yapak 2 which is essentially a wall dive that is usually divided into four different diving adventures and located just off the northwestern tip of Boracay Island near the Punta Bunga dive site. From the nearest dock, it only takes about 15 minutes by boat to reach the Yapak location.
The visibility of both Yapak locations is good with plenty of sea life to witness, including napoleon wrasses, dogtooth tuna, groupers, grey and white tip reef sharks as well. While the Yapak 1 site is more accessible to beginning and moderate level scuba divers who need to note the strong surface conditions which may get a little rough depending on different factors, Yapak 2 is more for experienced scuba divers that have deep dive certification.
However, both Yapak areas are quite spectacular because once you reach the bottom you can look up and see an amazing variety of fish swirling about. With depths that can reach over 60 meters, you will need to have experience and the proper certifications, but it is well worth it to see the incredible sea life above.
While the type of deep wall diving at the Yapak 2 site in particular is more for experienced divers, the overall experience at being in Boracay is certainly enough to call it one of the best vacation spots in the Philippines. In fact, there are many other dive locations that are perfect for inexperienced divers as well. But it must be said that Yapak 2 in particular offers an unforgettable experience, much in the same way that Boracay is fast becoming an unforgettable vacation spot.

Boracay itself is certainly a remarkable place and offers many different pleasures to relax between dives or to celebrate after completing a dive in the evenings. Whatever your taste may be, Boracay is quickly developing the reputation of being one of the best vacation spots in the Philippines.

For divers who have non-diving spouses, family or friends, Boracay is the perfect spot because there is so much to do under the sun. In fact, the island itself is quite noted for having a great combination of tranquility and an emerging nightlife scene so that the celebrations can continue. The white sand beaches alone are spectacular, but for divers there are some remarkable sites to visit around the island, particularly Yapak 2 being one of them.
