Diving with a Turtle in Big La Laguna Bay – Video

Thanks to Finn for this video of our divers swimming along with a beautiful turtle in Big La Laguna Bay, just outside Scandi Divers Resort. There’s some really nice close-up stuff about 1 minute in.

Turtles are regular visitors to Big La Laguna, and one of our favourites. So graceful in the water, they are an absolute pleasure to watch up close.

Book your dream Philippines tropical diving vacation with us, and you’ll be swimming turtles and other amazing creatures before you know it!
