This post is the last of the Philippines Trip that I did with 3 French friends from Beijing (published almost 4 months after we came back… sorry for the delay). After accumulating misfortunes at the beginning of the trip, enjoying the sea and beaches and riding motorbikes to explore the back-country, we ended our trip with a complete scuba-diving day in the Bacuit Archipelago.

Tough program for our scuba-divers’ team: full day on a boat with 2 dives in the morning, a picnic on a marvelous beach and a third dive in the afternoon.

I highly recommend Submariner Diving Center El Nido who provided us an amazing service: extremely detailed explanations for the beginners from the dive master, good quality equipment, only 2 additional Russian divers on the boat (6 in total)….

El Nido and the Bacuit Archipelago are well known for the clear water, marvelous beaches and the underwater ecosystem. The wildlife was spectacular with the usual exotic species in this part of the world: moray eel, blue-spotted ray, anemone, clown fish and even a turtle during last dive…

It was a pleasure for the eyes in 28 degrees water. :)

An incredible number of Humphead fishes My hand points the clown fishes

The images quality is unfortunately bad as I didn’t have the right lens adaptor on my Gopro to record videos and take pictures underwater. :(

Goodbye El Nido, Goodbye Philippines, I hope that I will come back soon… :)
