Diving in Apo Island

After diving a couple of days in Siquijor, our dive master really hooked us up, and let us drift dive in Apo Island – we hit 9 dive sites in 3 dives:  the current was STRONG.  I love drift diving, and I think it’s one of my favorite things!

We got to see so much in each of our dives, it was great!

And when I say our dive master really hooked us up – he did!  We jumped off a big boat…


But got picked up by a little boat…  We didn’t even have room for our legs inside the boat, and we kept getting hit with waves – I think it was the most fun I’ve had on a boat in between dives, second only to our dolphin encounter…  Seriously, how can you not love this?


And the view wasn’t bad either…


And we had lunch (great food!) on the beach, of course!


But back to the diving…


The coral garden there was spectacular.  Amazing soft coral!  The best we’ve seen by far!


Crown of thorns, eek!



The sad destruction from the typhoon last year…  A huge stretch like this towards the end of our dive.  Luckily, it only hit one end of the island, but this whole thing was beautiful coral gardens before too.






Beautiful, no?
