I take you back to Sogod Bay, nicknamed "Whale Shark Bay", in the south of Leyte Island, Philippines... On my first trip there in 2008, I missed them. Twelve years later, I was luckier!
In lack of salt water, I'm nostalgically looking back these days to my last underwater images brought back from the Philippines... It was a year ago, early 2020. Before the Covid-19 pandemic and border closures.
It's hard to make diving travel plans with the Covid-19 pandemic. In the world before the coronavirus, I used to go diving in the Philippines or Indonesia... In the world after, I dive in Brittany in green and cold waters.
In the Philippines, Balicasag Island is a popular dive site. You can observe a huge silvery school of trevallies, spinning near the reef. A fascinating sight...
Making bubbles along coral drop-offs overflowing with life and colour, what a delight! In the Philippines, Cabilao Island is a real little underwater gem.
In the Philippines, it is THE mythical encounter that all divers dream of: the whale shark, the biggest fish in the world.
Traveling light, I do not know what it is! In March, I went diving in the Philippines, Anilao and Romblon. With, in my luggage, a cumbersome paraphernalia to photograph the tiny wildlife that lives under water.
