  1. Just got back from a 10-day trip to Mike's Dauin Beach Resort in Dumaguete, Philippines. My brother and I went for the muck diving, as well as a day excursion to the marine sanctuary around Apo Island, about an hour's boat ride from the resort. In short, the muck diving is fantastic, and the reefs around Apo Island are spectacular - easily rivaling Sipadan's wall. Even though it wasn't octopus season, which is in February, we nevertheless met numerous species on every dive. All the coastal Dauin dives are no more than 3 to 5 minutes away, so you suit up the minute you get on board because by the time you're done, you're at your dive site. Apo Island is worth the extra cost: that reef is on steroids. So much life, and everything is huge! My gallery is at https://www.scubagirl.ca/dumaguete-philippines The diving is mostly boat-based. The dive team handles all your gear for you. All you need to do is make the 30-second walk from your room or dining area to the boat, which is tied up right off the beach. As with elsewhere in the Philippines, the dive boats are all bancas, which are custom-built boats with outriggers. These boats are super stable. Mike's fleet of two are large enough to spaciously accommodate 10 or more divers. From North America, get yourself to Manila, connect with a domestic flight to Dumaguete, less than 90 min from Manila. Beware that flights to and from Dumaguete tend to be delayed. On our trip, we experienced a 3 hour delay, causing us to miss our connecting flight from Manila to Singapore. If you go, plan for the delay! The resort is owned by Mike Feeney, who is based in Florida, I believe. The resort itself is well managed by Corrie, a British transplant, and supported by her partner and fellow Brit Jonathan, who manages the PADI training for guests who need it. The dive guides are TOP NOTCH! The kitchen is not particularly well set up, so service is slow, but the food is good - good enough that villagers and guests from other resorts will often go there to eat. The kitchen staff know they're slow, so they compensate for that by asking you for your order before you go diving. 10/10 would go again!
  2. Tail fin differs from typical "definitive" Two-Spot Wrasse tail, though Popp's Images has one photo with this more fan-like tail. I cannot find any other wrasse as close. Can anyone help?

  6. Here is the video from my recent voyage to the Tubbataha reserve in the Philippines. I have been diving for 20 years, and this the most amazing dive trip I have ever experienced. (Make sure to select 4K resolution, if your monitor supports that) https://youtu.be/n54kRn3IazQ Enjoy, Basil

  11. Hello all, I was fortunate to get my hands on a 1dx mark II a few weeks ago, along with an underwater housing for it. Did a last minute trip to the Philippines to test this out. It is a short video, and I did a mix of macro and wide angle. I used the 100mm F2.8L and some shots with a +10 diopter on it. For Wide angle I used the 16-35mm F4L. Make sure to choose 4k on the playback options. Or Vimeo I severely underestimated what the move to 4k was going to bring. The amount of resources both from a speed and storage standpoint is massive. After 40 dives, I came back with about 3.5TB worth of data. Almost all of these shots were shot 4k and 60p, played back at 30p. Let me know what you think! Enjoy, Dustin
  12. I wanted to share a short film I made recently. Back in October, I was lucky enough for it to be selected to be shown at the San Diego Undersea Film Expo. It seems that most underwater films are very similar now days. So I wanted to challenge myself to do something a little different. Earlier this year, a young artist, named Nick Carro approached me to ask my permission to draw an image from one of my films that had an octopus in it. I was flattered, but had one condition...that was for him to show me the final piece. Not only did produce an amazing piece of art, but he also filmed himself doing it. He was kind enough to allow me to use some of his footage to make this film. This is different.....and I am curious to know what people think of it. It was a very difficult to edit, but I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you think. Enjoy! Dustin Or Youtube
  13. Does anyone have any have any recommendations of PADI instructor training centres around Asia, specifically in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Indonesia, Malaysia or Philippines? I am also hoping to dive somewhere nice and keep costs relatively low... Many thanks!!

  15. Here are some of our favorite Anilao dive sites... Coconut, Arthurs, Daryl Laut, Bethlehem, etc. Shot via drone this May. Aerial Views of Anilao Enjoy this new perspective on our favorite macro destination in the Philippines!
  16. Hi Guys, Here is my latest work, a mini documentary on the Tubbataha Reefs in the Philippines. Warning: If you haven't been there, this video may cause you to instantly whip out your credit card and book a trip for next season. Tubbataha reminded my of Sipadan back in the good ol' days. Maybe even better. Fantastic diversity, huge schools, sharks and turtles everywhere, pristine corals and, on some days, visibility up to 100 meters! It's remoteness and short season helps but the Philippine government is doing a good job policing the park's "zero take" policies. Enjoy: http://www.peterwalker.com/tubbataha.html Regards Peter

  19. Hello Everyone, I have finished another short film. It is called Critter Planet. It has some old and new footage in it. But it also has a story line. Also, I have added some timelapse from the International Space Station. I downloaded over 150,000 pictures to try to get what I came up with for moving earth sections. Whats even cooler, is that they allow anyone to use it free of charge! (as long as you give them credit). Let me know what you think. Please like, share and comment! Or for Youtubers!
  20. HI everyone, I wanted to share my latest video I put together. It is from a night dive, where I had a friendly cuttlefish hang out with me for 45 minutes using my lights to hunt. It was great fun to watch. I hope you enjoy. Please feel free to comment or make recommendations. Dustin
