    This is from our trip to Puerto Galera / Sabang beach in the Philippines with Asia Divers/El Galleon. Beautiful healthy coral everywhere and amazing diversity of critters! Taal volcano put on an impressive light show but had no direct impact on the trip or diving. Asia Divers took great care of us and I'd totally recommend them and their eagle eyed DMs to anyone looking at Sabang (5 available dives/day + only shop with a pier so you don't have to wade in the funky smelling surf)

    Majority of the video was shot on GoPro 7 Black with Flip macro lens + Sola 2500F. Amorous octos are around 4 min in



    Big thanks to @Trailboss123 for the detailed trip report that pointed us to PG!

    Glad you liked it!

    All the video I've got of the eruption is from that day/evening and extremely similar to what's in the video above. Here's all I've got but don't expect much...
