Philippines: Malapascua Exotic

Here we are diving in Malapascua, the reefs are overloaded with color, we have seen frog fish, seahorses and thresher sharks a plenty. Our guide Ronel seems quite good at finding all the small stuff.

We have succumbed to the happy hour with half price cocktails every night so far, it makes for quite a noisy game of crib!

Alarms were set for 04:00 today as we had an early departure for the thresher shark dive. We jumped at 05:30 and descended to the cleaning stations where the Sharks presenented themselves for viewing at regular intervals, over ten were seen during our dive.

The boats here seem to have been designed for smaller and shorter people in that the cylinder holders are a little low for us. The idea of starting a dive operation for taller folk. This soon turned in to Fat basta’d diving holidays to the Philippines. Larger boats with more space for the taller individual with a higher tank position etc. A spinoff eperation would be serving non stop coffee and donuts amongs other things designed to maintain the larger frame.

The crib league continues, new partners all round after jo and Richard won the last bout, the search for the holidays crib champions continues…
