If you are planning a dive trip to the Philippines, or want to explore more of the islands we highly recommend getting travel insurance just incase of any accidents or emergencies. Try to get an insurance which covers for scuba diving and check the small print to see what is/isn't included. Ideally you want to be covered for at least a depth of 50 metres deep.
