In life it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with.

Guess who greeted us by our Easter Sunday island-hopping in Sablayan?

Another popular diving destination in the Philippines is Apo reef. Apo reef is considered the second largest coral reef in the world and admittedly the largest in the Philippines. On our way to Apo Reef, we were accompanied by a group of pilot whales. Pilot whales belong to the family of oceanic dolphins.

Aside from Apo reef two others are Apo Island and the Pandan Island. Apo Reef is located 28 kms off the western coast of Mindoro Island, a protected sanctuary and declared a National Park in 1996. Apo Reef Natural Park has a unique natural charm and has a high diversity of corals and has an island covered with abundant vegetation. The site has some of the most surreal spots and a haven for divers.

If you’re up for an underwater action Apo Reef will not disappoint you, schools of several fish, tuna and the photographers dream, barracudas, not to mention the white and black tip reef sharks, manta, sting rays and turtles all in one. Next time I will be coming back with an underwater camera to take more pictures under the sea.
