Video: Moalboal’s amazing sardine run

We’ve told you: Moalboal is one of our absolute favorites in the country.

We had one reason for visiting the town: to see the sardine run. At the end of two dives—one at Pescador Island and one at the reefs just off Panagsama Beach—we were left awestruck. It was, by far, one of the best dives we’ve ever had. It’s right up there with seeing such trophy creatures as the thresher shark in Malapascua, and lots and lots of sea turtles in Apo Island.

For those of you thinking about getting certified, Moalboal is definitely a great place to do so. In the meantime, here’s a video we put together from these two dives. The entire video was shot using a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition & edited using the rad new GoPro Studio program. :D
