Just back from a trip to Sogod Bay. It's my second trip there and it was better than the first! Diving was not bad with lots of healthy reefs and fish aplenty. Vis was good with at least 15m or more on most dives.
DAMN GOOD TRIP! my self portrait with my shaky left hand struggling with the weight of the rig. :bsmilie:
The night dive at Burgos jetty was still as superb as ever. It's the only night dive where all the jaded-divepros actually did a night dive! We spent almost 80 minutes at the jetty just busy spotting creatures and watching hunting lionfish. still the best night dive site for me!
the dive center seemed reluctant to take us snorkeling with the whalesharks for the 1st 2 days and kept planning more dives for us. Later we found out it was because there has only been 1 sighting the whole of last week, so they didn't want to deal with disappointed guests. however we insisted on going and were richly rewarded with a close encounter with a juvenile 4m whaleshark that circled us for a good 30 minutes. we also saw another couple of whalesharks within the next 90 minutes before heading back for lunch. we went back again the next day and saw maybe 5-6 whalesharks but they were all short encounters.
#1 5fps. Pray and Spray. the juve that played with us and tried to ram all of us many times
#2 I think I saw a magazine cover with a picture like this. it looked much better than this, of course
#3 I like how the textures and colours all fit nicely in this pic
