Made some serious lemonade out of yesterday's lemons. Changed to amazing resort on other side of the island (Busuanga side). Joined dugong dive group for some amazing dives amidst the massive rain storm. Swam with dugongs!!!! (These are a cousin to the manatee and sightings are very rare.) But today was our day and we got to swim along side them. They move quick so it was funny that the younger divers couldn't keep up with the dive master but Monique and I were right there.
Here's a clip of what we saw. This was snorkeling with just mask and fins. I did scuba after and got up close with sea turtles, rays, amazing corals, eels, sea horses, cuttle fish, frog fish, and so much more. As we surfaced it was still pouring crazy rain. The other side of the island was unable to do any ocean dives.
So the Cebu chapter of our adventure was cancelled but we are enjoying Busuanga with more dives tomorrow!
