Dive Mantangale

Cebu Divers aka Deco Nuts made a huge splash at Mantangale Alibuag Dive Resort last weekend after Milenyo thru the invitation of our photo guru - Doc Stan.
There we met Misamis Oriental divers - Mario, Jun, RJ and the owner/divemaster Dodong Uy who attempted to feed me underwater!
Our group (Me & Paulo, Tim & Barbi, Kevin & Joy, Eric & Agnes and Fred Q) started our dive day straight from the seaport of Cagayan de Oro to check the famed Duka Bay. We did 2 dives at Medina Paradise Underwater Spring and Aquarium - included in the Asian Divers 101 Coolest Dive Sites in the World.
Our last dive of the day was the most memorable one as we visit to take a look at the ultimate critter -the pygmy seahorse of Lapinig!
Second day, we visited the resort's Again House Reef - a pinnacle with lots of wintry green and orange black coral trees and huge moray eels.
After lunch, we checked Sta Ines Wreck and there we saw some more underwater springs. We ended our dive vacation by visiting once again the star of this trip - the pygmy seahorse of Lapinig! (worth mentioning twice!)
By the way, as soon as we arrive Cebu - Me & Paulo / Tim & Barbi still decided to proceed to Malapascua even with the cloudy weather but diverted instead to Moalboal. And yes, we only managed to do a single dive at Kasai Point due to howling wind and surfable waves!
What a bunch of Nuts!
