It was our second experience with tropical water diving, and Anilao welcomed us with a serene, blue sea. Located in Mabini, Batangas, the Philippines, Club Ocellaris overlooks Balayan Bay.

Our boatmen’s attention to detail kept everything running smoothly. Gear and cameras were always taken care of as if we did it ourselves. We were never rushed, and dive times were only limited by how much air was in our tanks.
