Long travel time to get there but worth every hour of it. The diving was great with plenty of underwater life to see. Be sure to bring your camera/video to capture that unbelievable moment when the Whale Shark swims up next to you. The crew, accommodations, food and diving on the SY Philippine Siren were the best. Even without any night diving there was plenty to do on the ship to stay busy. Would have liked to stay another week.
