Meet the Cuttlefish

One of the brainiest, most bizarre animals in the ocean. A bizarre, alien-like creature like no other. It's an animal with eight sucker-covered arms growing out of its head, three hearts pumping its blue-green blood, and a doughnut-shaped brain. It has the ability to change its color and shape to blend in with seaweed and rocks, and it has a knack for switching on electrifying light shows that dazzle its prey. Perhaps most surprising of all, this animal is quite intelligent, with a highly complex brain.
Philippines: Wrecks, Hammerheads & Large Schools of Fish

Marco Vincent Dive Resort has recently returned from its first visit to Maestra De Campo, Coron Bay and Apo Reef. We spent 6 wonderful nights exploring some of the best wreck diving in the Philippines. Coron Bay is home to a fleet of Japanese ships that were sunk during 1944. With Cathedral Cave and Barracuda Lake Coron is one of the most interesting diving areas in the Philippines. We spent the final 2 days of the cruise diving at the Apo Reef natural Park. We saw Hammerheds, White tip sharks, stingrays and large schools of Barracuda before ending our charter in Puerto Galera. 
Maestre De Campo, Coron Bay and Apo Reef. We explored the ship wrecks of Coron with extra visits to Cathedral Cave and Barracuda Lake. The second part of the trip was spent diving on the pristine reefs of Apo Reef. View Video
