Amazing Anilao diving--unique sea anemone

Recommended Posts

Perry, troporobo,

 

Scuba is NOT allowed in S.Leyte with the whale sharks. The rules stipulate that on a specific whale shark trip to anywhere, specifically either Sonok or Limasawa, upon spotting a whale shark, divers are NOT allowed to kit up and enter the water. IF however, during a dive at any spot, a whale shark comes by, that is ok. Some operations, esp the transient liveaboards regularly break these rules do not properly brief their guests, touch the sharks, and ruin everyones day.

 

Flash photography is still a no-go. They will dart off into the blue thus ending the interaction.

 

I live here, currently setting up a dive resort, so i will tread lightly around comercialism so you will have to listen to others recommendations about diving here.

Perry,

 

Peters and Sogod Bay Scuba are about a minutes walk apart, so both have great house reefs, although SBSR is a bit closer to the MPA at Longsoda'an. There are 3 dive sites accessible from the shore in front of the resorts, all very good. Peters is cheaper and more basic at the low end aiming for the travellers market upto reasonable AC rooms. SBSR are all AC and a bit more expensive at approx. 1500php a night, and dives at around 1300. There is also a new Japanese owned operation in that village, called Nova Jimbei, which caters more for the eastern menu. They are new and finding their feet so i cant comment on operations but the boat is smaller, more basic, but he may plan to upgrade soon.

 

Yeah the jetty is still only monday, wed, fri as it is the town pier and constantly used for fishing boats to bring ashore their cargo. Its only 4-5m deep so diving when they are moving around is a bit too much!

 

I hope to still be here in Dec (im presently diving with SBSR because i like their guides, especially Pedro, who has amazing eyes and is an allround nice bloke) so if u want another photographer buddy PM me.

Perry, many macro & CFWA shots in your Anilao 2010 Flickr gallery are truly amazing !!! Which setup did you use for CFWA ??? Tokina 10-17 + 1.4x teleconverter + small dome ??? Which camera are you using ???

 

All the Best .... Francesco

Hi Francesco :

 

Yes, I use Nikon D2x camera + tokina 10-17 mm lens + kenko 1.4 x teleconverter + Nexus housing + Inon Z-240 strobe x 2 + short arm for macro wide-angle photography, but the dome is the same as 10-17 mm len use, but plus extension .

 

 

Hi Olly :

 

Thanks for your explanation and suggestion, I'll decide to dive with SBSR during Dec. 07-12 . I'll contact with them later.
