    actually i got confident to dive again last year (even try out rebreather), when my son build me a balancing denture which took him more than 6 month to trial, so I don't need adhesive during dive. only use some when I need to deliver speech with lot of answer(during last dive exhibit last July under Yvette in HK Resort travel mart) dive rebreather with my balancing denture, its a new life. merry Christmas to ALL.

    The nearest wrecks to PG is either the Mactan Ferry, Coral Island or Princess of the Orient but non of them can be regarded as near.
    Almar Jane is a wreck BUT the swim through can't be described as penetration. Marcus Cave is more difficult and deeper.

    As for the CCR, think about the logistic ie sorb, booster pump(you do want 200 bar of gas in your 2-3L tanks), spare parts, services etc etc. There are not enough CCR friendly dive shops around the world.
    A competent dentist is much easier to find anywhere in the world.

    Did you or any other CCR divers have unfriendly experience in Puerto Galera on rebreather diving?

    It will be great if you can share the story with us.
