    At long last, the enforcement of the Mangal Marine Protected Area (MMPA) has begun.

  • Benazir And Buddy Sea Turtles At Casabangan Bay Mansalay Oriental Mindoro Philippines

    I had to return to Casabangan Bay before the end of Amihan or the start of the typhoon season, so that I could revisit the diving sites in the area at the calmest time of the year (April, May and June, in the absence of a typhoon, of course).

    Although I have only scratched the surface, there are already two (2) exceptional diving areas I have identified just a few minutes small bangka ride from Casabangan beach.
