Palawan divers boats are named Irawadi I, II & IV. Irawadi I and II are local fishing boats converted into diving vessels. The Irawadi IV is a twin 115hp speed boat. In the Philippines bancas are the traditional fishing boats but the newer ones include scuba diving boats. These are outrigger boats that are spacious and comfortable. To ensure your safety and enjoyment we only accept a maximum of 8 guests on each boat.

Palawan Divers Boats: what’s an Irawadi ?

Irawadi sounds like the famous river in Myanmar but it’s an endangered dolphin living in El Nido’s waters. It looks similar to the beluga. There are still around 60 of them between the Bacuit Bay and Tay Tay.
