The macro life is amazing and the guides are expert at finding macro
opportunities.

In addition to the typical South Pacific macro critters you will see a bait
ball at Pescadore, potentially with large fish feeding plus lots of turtles
and the possibility of a whale shark.

The accommodations are excellent and everything is convenient at this small
resort. 

The best connection from the US west coast are through Philippines
Airlines. You stop in Manila, then continue to Cebu where the resort picks
you up.

Overall a very reasonable cost for an excellent experience.
