Tubbataha was everything we expected, whale sharks, manta rays, schools of barracuda and jacks. Huge numbers of fish life and many micro subjects. Just tremendous. more »
六月是图巴潜水季的尾声，我们赶上的天气并不好，去时夜里狂风暴雨，海浪疯狂拍打着甲板。潜水的五天，每天都在下雨，海浪也很大，海面上所有的大小船只都在摇摆，日本晕船药一颗都不能停。但是跳下海的一刹那，就知道经历的一切都是在攒人品！ 每一潜都会看到一望无垠的珊瑚，而且种类丰富多彩，争先恐后的生长。每一潜都会看到1-3米的大海扇，像树一样茂盛，浸透着海洋的生命力。每一潜都会有成群的黑鳍鲨白鳍鲨巡游或排成队... more »June is the end of the touba diving season, and we catch up with the weather is not good, and the storm ynd of the night, the waves are beating the deck. Diving for five days, every day is raining, the waves are also very big, all the sea ships of all sizes are swaying, the Japanese seasick medicine can not stop. But the moment you jump out of the sea, I know that everything you experience is saving people! Each dive will see a never-before-seen coral, and the variety is rich and varied, scrambling to grow.

Each dive has a herd of blackfin sharks, whitefin sharks, cruised or slept in groups, and in general, whitefin sharks are lazy, as can be seen from their size. Each dive can be photographed in groups of mackerel, giving off fantastic colors, as well as cute turtles, night-time sneaking mackerel and so on. There are all kinds of Jack wave storms. There are also relatively rare large cargo, in JESSEY BEEZLEY's first dive check dive saw from the bottom of the sea wandering from the huge tiger shark. Nurse sharks, whether they're sleeping, are sleeping, and it's no wonder it's so white and beautiful. WE ALSO SAW MANTA'S STUNNING FIGURE AT BLACK ROCK AND SHARK AIRPORT. Most unexpected to us, we have met six different size whale sharks! The first was the third day of the dive, we were in DELSAN WRECK, the weather was gloomy and light rain, the subduction was IN BRIEFING, and the crew was screaming WHALESHARK! I really saw the whale shark's fat head floating...
