two years after a United States warship got stranded in the Tubbataha Reef, the Philippine Commission on Sports Scuba Diving (PCSSD) said the number of tourists visiting the World Heritage site have began to pick up. PSSCD Executive Director Karen Chan said divers have started going back to Tubbataha Reef on 2014, almost a year after the area was reopened to the public. Chan, who is a member of the Tubbataha Protective Area Management Board (TPAMB), estimated there are around 1,800 to 2,000 tourists, who visit the world renowned dive site each year.
