Great quantity of sea birds with blue spotted eggs. There is the remains of a ship that had ran aground. Great sunsets. We stayed for a week. Spectacular diving.

The only experience I have had with Tubbataha Reef is when
I grounded there with a 6000.tons cargo ship in 1973.
The reef was very hard and tore a large hole in my ship.
We had to unload some of the cargo out there and then
proceeded to Iloilo for repairs,
