Our final destination on our Philippines snorkeling tour was Dimakya Island in Palawan. Dimakya Island is home to Club Paradise and possesses arguably one of the most consistent reefs for showcasing the rare and wonderful critters that dwell on coral reefs. On this trip, let’s see…pegasus sea moths, robust, roughsnout, ornate, and halimeda ghost pipefish (pictured above), a thorny sea horse, ribbon eels, and an abundance of forskalli sidegill slugs. This adds to the usually sightings of all the tropical reef fishes, including schools of bigeye scad and horseeye jacks, as well as rays and blacktip reef sharks. Whew. Now add that to the beautiful reefs of Dibubuyuan, Dimipac, and Caluit Islands and you can already tell we had one hell of a 3-day trip! Though we only saw Dugongs from the surface, we were treated to some barrel-rolling feeding behaviors of a group of manta rays. Not a bad consolation prize!
