    Dauin Marine Reserve and Sanctuary

    We woke up confused since we forgot that time changed today and it was still dark at eight o'clock in the morning as winter weather continues. I didn't feel like doing anything today but the promise of delicious dim sum for lunch with friends got us up and moving. The dim-sum didn't disappoint at Shanghai Chinese Restaurant and up to par with what we usually ate in San Francisco. I'm glad our friends discovered this place and we're definitely going back there soon.

    When we arrived home, I was so full and thankful that it made up for the dreary day we're having. To lift up my spirits more, I ...

  • Atmosphere Dive Site Mainit Dauin

    Mainit can be an exhilarating drift dive but it is also an excellent dive when the current isn't running. Due to the currents, there are frequent sightings of large schools of barracuda and fusiliers but there is also a lot of macro life.

    The boat will drop you on one side and pick you up on the other, so there is no need to swim against a current ??" instead you can just let the drift pull you along while you watch the scenery. The dive site starts with a sandy slope that gives way to soft and hard coral, as well as a lot of colorful sponges.

    If you look closely at the barrel sponges ...

    Today's dive at "Mainit" in front of Amontillado Resort - a beautiful dive. We saw the resident school of barracudas, banded sea snake, giant octopus, beautiful nudibranch and many sweetlips, snappers and other coral fish.
