These images were captured in the Philippine Islands. We first stayed at Arthur’s Place, a secluded scuba diving resort in Anilo, Batangas. The hotel is old style Asian. Windows had shutters but no glass. It is built on a hillside near the beach and it is pretty. The scuba diving in the area was exceptional with beautiful soft corals abundant. Arthur’s seems to be mostly a weekend place used by folks living in the Philippines. One night mid week we were the only guests there. We had to take our meals there because of the lack of proximity to other restaurants, although we did discover one nearby. The food was good, but it did get repetitive after a while. We then transferred to Sabang in the Puerto Galera area where we stayed and scuba dived at La Laguna Beach Resort. They had a nice pool and a good restaurant on premises and lots of other places to eat nearby. Prices for food and beer were low. The rooms were of modern motel style. There were a lot of Russian divers staying there. The PADI dive shop is run in the highly organized dive school style. That means no advanced card, no deep dives. Actually, most of what there was to see was in the shallow water with some of the best dives being in the 10 to 14 meter range. I remember doing one deep dive that ended at an anchor. There were wild currents on that one. The dive center has technical diving instructors and closed circuit Inspiration rebreathers available, If you are up to that sort of thing.
