Filippijnen: Mindoro en Luzon

                  

Westcoast of Mindoro and a landtrip by car through Northern Luzon
(May/June 2005)

Via the southern tip of Mindoro the heading is for Pandan island and Apo Reef for the truly wonderful underwater life and scenery. Starting in Subic Bay we make a trip by car to the impressive rice terraces around Benaue on Northern Luzon. We swim with the orcas in Subic Bay and at the north coast of Mindoro we are the guests of the Puerto Galera Yacht Club.
