Increased Conservation Fee to apply in 2017

The Tubbataha Protected Area Management Board (TPAMB) increased the Conservation Fee for all visitors in the Tubbataha Reefs effective in 2017. The Fee was increased to US$100 per person per entry pursuant to Board Resolution 15-21.

The previous rate of PhP3000 conservation fee was increased for the first time in 10 years. The increase is necessary to augment revenues for Park management. The increased fee went through a consultation process with dive operators and professionals in 2015 and 2016.
