GREAT NEWS! A whale shark match in the...
AS INTERNET IS SUPER LIMITED HERE…I’VE LITERALLY JUST STOLEN THIS OFF THE LA.MA.VE WEBSITE….BUT HAVE A LITTLE READ…this is the first whale shark that has been identified in two different places in the Philippines: Oslob in Cebu and then San Ricardo in Southern Leyte (very close to where I am now). HOW EXCITING!!! The more re-sights we get of individuals across the...
No.27 Come fly with me through rainbow jungle....
Coral Cay must be the luckiest NGO this side of Bohol, for I have never seen such a beautiful reef! Going under the water here is like flying through a rainbow jungle…corals of every shape and size cover the sea floor, sponges form tubes and barrels, giant clams smile at you from hidden crevices, fish swim around you like small tornados and nudi’s flash their bare naked flesh at you, flesh that’s...

Everything’s a bit more rural here- I’m talking lush green mountains, rice paddies, barangays dotted here there and everywhere, dirt...
Ah-ha! Here is Steve De Neef’s diving highlights of 2011 that I wanted to share with you. Aren’t the Philippines beautiful?! All the more reason to protect them. Enjoy…. x
No.24 That's just the way that we Rove.
Dolphins Love Freedom. Yes it’s true, Dolphins do love freedom, and that my friends was the message I was helping spread with a whole host of crazy people in Bohol’s Dolphin Festival in Tagbilaran on the 31st of May. And what a fab day. As you can see from the photos it was an explosion of colour, crazyness and marine mammals!! A great day and a great celebration of Bohol, its people, its sea,...
