Camia II Wreck Dive – Boracay Philippines (Apr 09)


The Camia II was kindly donated by the President of the Frabelle Fishing Corporation, Mr. Francisco Laurel Jr. This former fish-catch carrier is 37 meters long, 7 meters wide and has a height at the top of its crane tower of 12 meters. It is made of steel and languished for years in the Navotas Fishing Port in Metro Manila.

  1. “…kindly donated by…” Wow, thats a lotta PC.

    The wreck is my favorite location, hands down. I prefer trailing behind everyone and quasi-ditching the buddy system so I can look at stuff rather than follow the leader like taking a city tour from the backseat of a taxi. Theres always certain small spots I like to check like the small coral patch on the stern with a colony of tiny black/white clownfish that dont like me… they’re so cute when they’re angry. Nearby is usually a tiny scorpionfish that no-one else ever sees.

  2. Yea dude. Was good vis and the camera worked out pretty good. A little photoshop and I was all set. The originals had too much blue I couldn’t filter out with the internal filters in the camera.
