Edgar Atienza - Mr. “local knowledge” in Anilao. I gave this easy going dive guide my “wish list” of macro critters to find: Spiny Tiger Shrimp, Bubblebee Shrimp, Hairy Shrimp and a baby Frogfish. He showed everything we asked for and much, much more. The next time we go to Anilao, it will be scheduled around Edgar’s availability.

The Seven Seas - Komodo, Raja Ampat and Banda Sea dive schooner. A class, well respected, operation with deep ties to the area.
