when i was a child i used to go on swimming in our most beautiful shore of song-on, loon , bohol. I have my "pana" to catch fish for our sud-an. Catch some sea cucmbers, sea urchins, sea weeds like lato and guso. The only thing that im so proud of our place is its fine white sand and long stretch. Now that im now in mindanao in cagayan de oro city. And almost 90% of area here in mindanao that i have gone through and i've never seen a place here in mindanao that can compared to our place. Ive gone to lanao,misamis occidental, zambo. provinces, zamboanga city, dipolog, ozamis, pagadian, davao, bukidnon, cotabato, basilan, jolo, sulu but I've never found a place like my beloved song-on, loon, bohol. I miss my place specially during fiestas and family reunions.

My diving experience in Bohol was in Anda area. We stayed at Flower Beach Resort. They've got their own dive center - Abyss Divers. The place is very clean and nice. The host was very warm and hospitable. The pricing was more than fair, something like 60 Singapore dollars per person per night with breakfast and dinner. Their dive sites are so beautiful! I especially liked the Paradise Garden - there's a whole lot of life there! Made many pictures that we still show to our friends. And we saw a whale shark there - adrenaline pumping experience! We had lots of fun.

Oh yeah! There are more to the list of dive sites around Bohol. Besides the east coast many still have to be discovered by dive tours. In 2002 while on a CRM project, I've tried to explore some of the dive sites in Tubigon particularly around the islands of Bilang-bilangan and Inanuran. The corals were slowly going back to life after years of illegal fishing methods used by the local folks. The coast of Bien Unido going to Danajon reef (Hingutanan side) and Carlos P. Garcia island is yet to be on the diving map.

My first Diving experience in the Philippines took place on Cabilao. We stayed at La Estrella Beach Resort and enjoyed diving with Cabilao Dive center. (two weeks accom. 1/2 board was around 30,000php. I don't remember what we paid for the diving. Nina, Birga and Tobias were great, as were the Local DM's Roy, Jhun Jhun, and Bobet. The dive sites around Cabilao are great for Macro Photography if you know what your doing....I did not, however I did get some photos I will cherish forever and the Memories will never be lost. Don't be disappointed if you do not see the Hammerheads. They just aren't there anymore. There was a shark sighting but not by me. Instead, look for the smaller creatures such as the pygmy seahorse, stonefish, lionfish, turkeyfish, scorpionfish, frogfish, various nudibranchs and others.

Can someone share the experiences of the resort you stayed and dive center you joined? At what price at what season? I'm planning to go there at the end of March.

My wife and myself were in Balicasag for the first time, although I was born in Bohol, two weeks ago. Balicasag's diving and snorkelling is world class nothing compares to it. You are like diving and snorkelling in a giant aquarium. Bebot, the Manager for the Balicasag Dive resort, and Aldo, the dive Master were magnificent host of the resort. When we were at the resort they were in the process of building a salt water pool and renovating the restaurant. On our first night we were the only customer of the resort, we have the resort to ourselves. Accomadation at the resort is also world class. The staff including the security guard are wonderfull and down to earth hospitable. Balicasag is one diving spot I will have to comeback everytime I will visit my hometown.
