Diving at Moalboal. After hearing and reading so much about this place in dive magazines I was really excited to go diving here. Yesterday I did my first two dives. Even though it wasn’t the best diving I’ve ever done, it was really nice. I guess we’re getting a bit spoiled with all the beautiful diving on this trip.

At 8:30 we left for our first dive at Pescador Island South where we saw some massive turtles and the second dive was a wall dive along the coast, where the colours were amazing. The coral is very much intact here and there are some really cool walls, which makes diving at Moalboal a pleasure.

Diving with a toddler

Wondering how we’re managing our diving with a toddler in tow? We’re taking turns! I did two dives yesterday, while Mau was staying with Jace and Mau did two today. Of course, it’s much nicer to dive together, but at least we get to dive this way. When we’re somewhere a bit longer or have a really good feeling about it (like in Bunaken) we’ll leave Jace with a sitter so we can go with the two of us. But that’s not the case here, so we’re taking turns. The great thing about diving is that there’s always a buddy to dive with 🙂

Diving at Moalboal: pictures speak louder than words

Instead of a big story, I’ll just show you some of the pictures I’ve taken here and you can see for yourself what the underwater world of Moalboal looks like. My camera kept fogging up because of the huge temperature fluctuations underwater, so they’re not my best pictures and unfortunately I couldn’t photograph the ghost pipefish (but I did see it!) but they’ll still give you a good first impression.
