I've had the privilege of diving in some of the best places in the world - but diving in the Philippines as always been at the top of my dream list.
Balacasag Island, a 20 minute boat road from the divers mecca of Alona Beach, is really something special.
From soft coral to the occasional whale shark, with everything in between, diving on Balacasag is a divers paradise.
After much research, and checking out the vibes at each shop - I chose to dive with Seaquest. They were seriously professional but also lovely to spend time with. So glad I chose them!
