In 2012, Tony Cherbas posted an awesome set entitled Planets Underwater... here's a tribute set to his inspiring outworldly images, Tony is one of the more creative underwater photographers...who consistently wins photo competitions yearly. All the tribute photos were taken with Bus Stop Dive Resort, a rustic resort located in Bauan Batangas offering several "Coral Planet" photo opportunities to choose from.
In the early 90's, Bauan Batangas was probably the main base for most Manila divers when the roads to Anilao were still being completed. Currently, the area caters mostly to newly certified divers since most resorts in the area have house reefs very suitable for dive training plus resort packages for weekend overnighters bundled with unlimited shore diving are great deals for those who want to master their skills underwater. I used to dive the area a lot in 2009 and vividly remember the colorful coral overhangs of Pinnacle and Ligpo Island plus the numerous cave swim throughs in the area and decided to do a revisit...
