... would tell anyone to definitely go to Malapascua for the sharks but don't expect too much from the rest of the diving.
We moored the boat and got off on to the island for lunch. After a roam around and a quick swim we were back on the boat so the others could do their next dive. I was glad we hadn't paid extra to do the extra dive. We chilled out on the boat while we waited for the others and then headed back to Malapascua. After ...

... a 15 metre long net down in shallow-ish water, then using rocks and arms you would splash about and herd the fish into the net. It was a lot of fun and although we spent the majority of the time cleaning seaweed out of the net, it gave us chance to chat as they were keen to get help with their English. Great fun and we did catch 5 small fish (although I think if doing it seriously it may be more successful!) which the chef then proceeded to cook for ...
