I wanted to do more than get on the 5am boat to dive with the sharks but unfortunately I was completed bunged up from the cold I had got that there was absolutely no way of me diving as my ears probably would have exploded, I was absolutely kicking myself! We still had an amazing few days though and even extended our stay to 7 nights because we were enjoying it so much.
Blue Coral kindly provided a breakfast for us every morning and we would ...

We had a day to explore Malapascua and we took a motorbike up to las gambas - the northern point. here we went snorkelling to a shallow world war 2 wreck and met a local girl who wanted to swim with us. Unfortunately she had no mask or snorkel and was not ...
