The Philippines (and especially Cebu) has a plethora of prime dive locations for its deep diving possibilities and variety of reef and wreck dives. 7,000 islands means that not only are there tropical islands of all shapes and sizes but the diversity of life in between the islands (underwater) is astonishing.
During the second World War, the Philippines was a site of US occupation and a number of battles took place there. USS Cooper is a documentary revealing the tale of an historic battle and subsequent sinking of the ship USS Cooper as told through a group of professional divers and one of the few survivors. See the trailer for more of the story.
