Yesterday I managed to drag myself away from the pool to do some scuba diving.

We headed down to a place called Moalboal, a sleepy little town on the island of Cebu. It's quite the diving central, pretty much every shop, hotel and bar is catered towards getting underwater.

Here's why (not my photos, but was taken nearby)

Just 15 meters off the beach, the reef drops to 30 meters. Great visibility, and tons of fish that I had never seen before. Got spooked by a turtle at 15m down!

After the dive, we pulled up at the bar to watch the sun hit the water.

Seriously if you've ever wanted to scuba dive, this is the place to do it. This was only my third dive, and even with an instructor assisting me for the whole dive it cost less than $40.
