Like this one... Night dive ??
Two things have altered not
Since first the World began
The beauty of the wild green earth
And the bravery of Man

No wonder... long overdue upgrade. This should have been done like 5 years ago. Can see a big difference. Now the colours on his photos are 100% correct.

Thanks for telling me bro, and I always welcome some sponsorship. May be a fund for full frame that's long overdue too?  :D :P

Not only good night dive, service was great too.  Not only given bath towel, the warm face towel was godsend when shivering in the cold after the dive. ;)

I can still remember the boat ride back after the night dive on the eve of Typhoon Yolanda. Cold and shivering, the hot face towel warm us up...the boat back to the resort is scary though with high swell and strong wind.

Do all the guides at Planet bring people to the pier for night dives ? My couple friends went and they said to them is too far and ask dem to dive at Twin Rocks.

We didn't have any issue.  We did 2 night dives there out of our 4 nights stay.  It's a 30 mins boat ride, and we even have strong wind and choppy surface on 1 night due to Typhoon Haiyan passing close by.

Planet Dive guides live in Manila and only come in when there are guests. They have their regular guide, Gerard Gozun, which I liase with always. When there are more guests or group, they will get more guides but I'm not sure if these other guides are freelance or their permanent guides. You can also talk Bob or Denise who are 2 of the 3 co-owners of Plane Dives who are usually there over the weekends to resolve problem.
