D -12

Nudibranchs are plenty in the Filipino waters if you know where and how to look for them 🙂 The show-off of colours is simply amazing. I must admit that I’ve never seen any other animal family with such a range of colours. And there are still more to discover!

Counting the hours…

Moalboal-Cebu Island

Travels, underwater

Almost a week ago we savely arrived at Love’s Lodge in Moalboal o the western coast of Cebu Island. The first day was rainy with ow viz. We enjoyed the dives nevertheless and everybody was amazed by the variety of coralsd and critters. On the 3rd day we got a thyphoon warning, but after a couple of hours of stronger winds the sun came out again and chased the grey clouds. Pescador Island is the highlight in Moalboal, a small island just 15 minutes away. Steep walls with lots of soft and hard corals.

Two days ago we transferred to Alona on Panglao Island close to Bohol. A big change from sleepy Moalboal. The dives around Balicasag were just unbelievable!

Tomorrow is our first dry day. Chocolate Hills, we’re coming.

Off to the Philippines

I waited for this moment since I’m back from my Sulawesi trip 🙂

Tomorrow morning I will board the plane in Frankfurt with a party of 10 people for a 16 day trip to the Visayas.

We’ll spent our time in Moalboal, Alona and finally around Dauin. I have great memories from 2 former trips in 2003 and 2005.

I’ll keep you updated and will post some pics if internet connections allow it.
