... space and I was constantly trying to get away from them. We saw some cool pipe fish, nudi's, lionfish and scorpionfish. Sarah spotted an octopus but it kept hiding and wouldn't come out for me. The corals were a bit disappointing too. I understand that a lot of them have been destroyed with the recent typhoons and tsunmai's that have hit the Philippines.

My entire dive of 60 mins is spent watching sharks glide in and out from the depths up to us divers and ...
... 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 ...
