Comments I saw thresher sharks in Kimua shoal, nudibranchs in almost every dive, sea snakes and an incredible cave penetration in Gato Island, drift dive in chocolate, glass shrimps in Capitan Cillo, pipe and frog fish in Lamanok, great night/drift dive in a secret place :), in Pelican Is I saw Eels, Gow fish, glass shrimps with fantastic vis, turtle/octopus/frogfish in Spanish Tower, school of Jacks in Balica Sag, giant crab in a night dive in Alona Dojo, color garden in Coconut Is, seven (!) whale sharks in Oslob (some guests commented that it seemed like being in a zoo. Thus they did not appreciate it very much), small moray eel in Sumilan. It was a great trip; however, there were also unhappy feelings since we all acknowledged that the food was below par (strange for a liveaboard) and that the Aggressor director did not behave very professionally with a female guest.
My video of this trip (only UW action) can be seen at:
