Planet Dive @Anilao

Arrived on 7 Nov very early in the morning.  Reached resort before 9am and did 2 boat dives (Aphol’s Rocks & Secret Bay) and night dive @Twin Rocks.

Day 2, done 2 boat dives before lunch (Dari Laut Wreck & Bebot’s), 1 shore dive after lunch at Twin Rocks and night dive @Anilao Pier.

Day 3, very strong wind from the super typhoon causing choppy surface water so no boat diving for the day.  Took this time to processed a few photos. Late afternoon took a shore dive at Twin Rocks but visibility was poor due to the heavy rainfall.

Day 4, did 2 boat dives (Beatrice Rocks & Layag Layag) in the morning before lunch. Late afternoon did another boat dive at Matu, just outside of Anilao Pier. This dive site has nothing much except a slope of rocks.  Then at the pier while waiting for our night dive, went ashore to the village. The night dive, also the last dive of this trip, saw a Bobbit worm caught and swallowed a fish into the sands. However, didn’t managed to capture that very quick moment.
