Manila, Philippines (September 30, 2017) – A new reality TV show will hit the airwaves this afternoon, bringing beauty of underwater world and the rich wonders of marine creation via The Dive Philippines.

The show premieres September 30, 2017, 5:30 pm to 6:00 pm at UNTV News and Rescue.

The Dive PH will take viewers to various wonderful dive sites in the country and showcase the diversity of marine life.

At the core of the show is Argentinian Professional Scuba Diving International (PSI) dive instructor and marine biologist Luis Heredia and scuba diver and UNTV News feature correspondent Bryan Evangelista.

The show is a collaboration among Professional Scuba Diving International (PSI), DSR Creative Multimedia Film and public service channel UNTV.

They will be using sophisticated cameras and underwater drones to capture nature’s wonders.

The thirty-minute show is the country’s first and only underwater diving reality show on free-to-air television.

It will feature wonders of God’s creation underneath the sea which are not known to many.

It was conceptualized by multi-awarded broadcast journalist, public service advocate and UNTV CEO Kuya Daniel Razon.

“Kuya Daniel Razon aims to showcase the amazing dive sites in the Philippines since we are at the heart or center of the coral triangle, an area in the world where we can find many different kinds of fishes, many different kinds of corals that are unknown to us,” said host, Bryan Evangelista.



Apart from being entertaining, the program is also informative as host Luis Heredia gives scientific explanations on the sea creatures viewers will discover.

“Don’t forget that two-thirds of the world is made up of water. If you can see many wonderful things here on land, you can see more of God’s wonderful creatures underneath. Here on “The Dive”, the wisdom behind every God’s creature will also be shown,” Evangelista added.

Marine Conservation

The Dive PH aims to entertain and educate viewers about the marine life of the Philippines and primarily promotes marine life conservation and protection.

The new program will feature artificial reef planting that serves as temporary shelter for fishes, and underwater cleanup drives.

Pilot Episode

On its pilot broadcast, celebrity Joshua Dionisio will take the challenge and will have his first test dive in Morong, Bataan.

Undiscovered Sites

The Dive Philippines also went cave diving in Calintaan Island, in Matnog, Sorsogon and filmed an astonishing sight of a school of fishes.

They also got a close encounter with whale sharks called “Gentle Giants” which can be seen within the waters of Oslob, Cebu.

The Dive PH Theme Song

Meanwhile, OPM band Plethora was chosen to sing the diving show’s theme song.

The group’s lead vocalist LJ Herrera said they’re awed by the program’s concept.

“Kuya Daniel’s concept is great because he thought of making a program to promote especially the unexplored diving sites here in the Philippines to encourage Filipinos, especially international tourists to see them,” Herrera said.


Professional Scuba Diving International (PSI) Philippines is a non-government organization (NGO) that aims to protect and preserve the Philippines’ rich marine life.

The organization focuses on searching unexplored sites and helps in protecting them.

PSI Dive Center is located at Sitio Panibatuhan, Barangay Poblacion, Morong, Bataan.


UNTV is on analog channel 37 and digital television channel 38 (617.143 MHz) in Mega Manila.

It is also being carried by major cable and direct-to-home satellite providers nationwide. [techthetruth]
