The Day Trip: Anilao

A new mix of dive buddies which may turn into something more regular, with more people! Ramon de Veyra asked me if I wanted to go on a day trip dive with Quark, Neva and her family. This video is the result. It’s really the ‘Ramon de Veyra Underwater Show.’

Below is raw footage of the octopus doing it’s camouflage thing — color and texture changing right before your very eyes. I’ve never gotten this kind of up close and personal footage. The cephalopod seemed to stand its ground and displayed the warning signs of it being threatened. I had the LED light turned off so as not to intimidate it further. I guess that was a good thing because it stayed.

P.S. Aquaventure Dive Resort now has free WiFi. No passwords!
