My settings from our last trip to Philippine, this time where we diving with MV, Solitude, One.

We had a really amazing time on board. we saw lot of super macro stuff, diving on amazing beautiful reef, once we should diving in blue hole, and that was starting at 5m deep and went down to 25m, the problem we had, was that tide water was coming in at 25m and pushing up al the water throw the hole, so that wasn’t so easy to swim down there with all camera equipment, but we did it 🙂

We started the trip with one night in Solitude Acacia Dive resort, (Aniao, Philippines) This Hotel is just made for divers,and all in our group agreed on that, We (Grace and me didn’t have any times to dive with them this time, but some of our friends stayed there for some more days, and they was really impressive about the dive site there, beautiful corals reef, and lot of fishes, etc , so we need to go back there soon again.

Our trips was starting to make some dives in Puerto Galeria, and one of there dive site there I can really recommend is Monkey dive site, Beautiful corals, nudis etc.

It was nice to be back there again after 23 years , (that time was we diving with Asian Divers, We can also really recommend Asian Divers) , and it wasn’t so ruined as i feared, but instead very beautiful considering, what has unfortunately happened in many other places.

After visiting Puerto Galera was the trip going to Romblon (the heaven for Macro shooting) . that’s dive site was amazing, we saw lot of new thing, small shrimps crabs and lot of beautiful Nudibranch in all shapes,sizes and colours just amazing .

This beauty (Nudibranch)
