Exploring the Philippines
For the last 2 weeks and for about 3 more I will be exploring the Philippines as part of an assignment for Lonely Planet to update the Diving and Snorkeling Gudie to the Philippines.
For week we went to the Sulu Sea aboard the Expedition Fleet's Stella Maris. We enjoyed glassy seas. This is a World Heritage reserve and is producing
beautiful seasonal days and exciting dives.
We also visited Donsol, which is known for its whale sharks. But we also dived Manta Bowl and enjoyed the Donsol fiesta.
We're now exploring the reefs of Anilao at Outrigger and then we move on to Malapascua.
The Philippines has lot of variety. We're trying to sample it all for the upcoming updated dive guide due out January 1, 2010.
Keep posted for more PI exploits.
