Anilao is more well known for tiny critters but on the Bauan Ligpo side, you occasionally see sharks during the colder months of the year 


Finding Sharks in Anilao is always a treat. While most tourists travel to Anilao to take tons of photos of tiny marine wildlife,. you occasionally see sharks at tiny caverns around the area during the colder months which starts December till March

The shark was a meter inside a cavern with a two meter opening. had to squeeze in with arm extended to get close

White Tip Reef Sharks in Anilao are usually found in the Ligpo area at the famous shark cave sixty feet below plus you usually find three to four juveniles stacked upon one another. This shark was a small adult hanging around solo at a cavern forty feet deep.

We found a Four footer which looks pregnant. Usually you see three to four juveniles stacked upon each other at the eighteen meter shark cave, this one was a new location 

A closer inspection of the shark reveals a swollen belly and kinda looks happily pregnant. It was definitely a great way to end the year and my students had such a lucky moment, imagine, seeing a shark in the wild just right after their open water course...I saw my first one probably after a hundred dives.
