Looking for resort recommendations for the above locations. Thanks in Advance, Jamie
I have finally was able to do a quick upload(but not fully edited) gallery of my recent trip to Moalboal and Malapascua Philippines. Had a great trip, nice resorts and surprisingly good results with Lightroom on WIndows Surface Pro 128 tablet as my 'laptop;. I can write more later about resorts, diving, how to get there, or the Surface Pro if anyone is interested.. Here are the galleries on SmugMug http://www.davidkleinfelt.com/Underwater/Moaboal-Philippines-2013/28607491_FhDmH3 http://www.davidkleinfelt.com/Underwater/Malapascua-Philippines-2013/28634423_7pxXVJ David
Please dive with us at the Evolution Photoganza 2013, September 13th-18th, Malapascua, Cebu, Philippines! Join one of the Philippines top rated dive resorts for an incredible Photography and Marine Biology Workshop in September 2013. Evolution is one of the most respected and professional dive resorts in the Philippines. This September we are offering you the chance to hone and perfect your photography skills whilst learning about the incredible marine life of Malapascua with underwater photographer and Biologist Dr. Klaus M. Stiefel. Whether you’re an amateur happy snapper or a serious photo hobbyist, this workshop will prioritize your needs. Photographers can expect small groups, and a customised dive schedule to maximise both wide angle and macro opportunities on Malapascua. And everything will be done at a photographer’s pace! Lectures and presentations on local fauna will supplement the experience. Learn about the behaviour of the famous Alopias pelagicus or Thresher Shark, uniquely found at diving depths in Malapascua. Dr. Stiefel will also draw heavily on his experience in Malapascua to teach participants about the dynamics of commensal, parasitic and symbiotic behaviour that allows prepared photographers get the shot of a life time. The cost for this Photography and Marine Biology Workshop is only 26 000 Philippine Pesos (605 A$, 635 US$ as of December 12th, 2012). This includes twin share in a beach-side fan room, all meals in our famous restaurant, 12 guided specialty photo dives to Malapascua’s top dive sites, return transfers from Cebu (pick up is 12:00 noon, September 13th and participants will be returned to Cebu at 12:00 noon, September 18th) and daily lectures and presentations on underwater photography and marine biology by biologist and underwater photographer Dr. Klaus M.

My girlfriend and I are considering a 2+ week trip to the Philippines this Sept/Oct. Will be the 1st time for both of us. Was thinking Anilao and then a more Pelagic friendly destination. Few questions for people in the know: 1) Is it OK to go and dive this time of the year? It seems that this will be during the monsoon season... Is it miserably wet? Is vis affected too much? 2) Can anyone recommend any good resorts? Seems like Club Ocellaris is the place to be in Anilao... 3) What Pelagic site would be best this time of year? Malapascua looks good... September was mentioned as "Manta Month" in 1 article I read. Thanks for any help! Jay
