Its so easy to get sucked in to surfing day in day out. Particularly when there’s the waves of your wildest day dreams reeling in just outside you door. I really try and make the effort to get out and see the culture and trouristy side of the countries I visit (I'll admit these visits are usually planned on smaller/ windy days or when the tide isn't so great..) Here is what I got up to in between surf days in the Philippines...
An hours pump boat ride from where we where staying on Siaragao lyes the most incredible nooks and crannys of Sohtan caves, we spent the afternoon swimming through underwater arches and caves, climbing through rocky passages to leap into the lagoons and paddling little boats through swamps of beautiful jelly fish!
Swimming with the largest fishies on the planet- Whale sharks need I say more?!? These beautiful, plankton munching giants had me speechless.
Snorkelling about the countless reefs, not going to lie... I’m pretty damn proud of these photos I took having fun with the underwater macro features on the Olympus Tough (tg) 5
Ohhh, so very welcome for a cool off dip after a hot day exploring. These are also in Oslob (Cebu Island) Only 10 minuites away from the beach where you can swim with the Whale sharks.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more info as to where these places are and the best / cheapest ways to get to them etc!
