Apo Reef

From the town of Sablayan in the province of Occidental Mindoro, Apo Reef is accessed via a 2-hour boat ride. Apo Reef is one of the most imporant reef systems in the Philippines because of its sheer size and diversity. Home to numerous pawikans and migratory birds, utmost conservation practices are implemented by the ecotourism officers in the island.

They even imposed a lights out on us and “almost” cut short our socials. We learned that suppressing laughter whilst spontaneously getting soused with cheap gin is a feat exercised by the most motivated drinkers!

Oh and planktons glow like LED lights in the water. Really cool.

Following shots were shot with my handy Canon and Fuji Superia 400.
