    thank you guys ~
    I tried three dives for the sardines, so I'm very happy you liked it
    The frogfish was at the Pescador island, and this one was very nice who would like to yawn at the camera

    Thanks for the trip report. I like your pictures very much.

    Did you enter the small cave located at 30m at Pescador? Really cool dive site with beautiful corals and nice atmosphere.

    Cool, I am going there in 2 weeks - so is morning the best time for the Sardines?

    How regular do the resort go to Sardines and Pescador? We will only have 7-8 dives.

    Thanks

    You can see the sardine run anytime on the house reef (along the shore) You don't need a boat to go there.
    For Pescador, they usually go multiple times each week upon customer request.

    I highly recommend the night dives on the house reef. We can spot some very nice critters.

    ok, thanks - I will be staying at turtle bay resort, so I guess we might need a boat to get to the sardines...

    Thank you MomZo, I pass by that cave twice but didn't enter it, cause I was almost DECO lol...
    the soft coral there were indeed amazing!
    we made 3 dives at the sardine site, and 2 of the dives we took a tricycle... because there were only two of us, and the boat was too big. I prefer a boat totally, but tricycles are doable.
    So glad you like the photos :D
    I use Olympus EM1mk2 and INON Z330 strobes

    That was my experience too when I stayed at Turtle bay.
    As a reply to @Tripophobia :
    - if you want to get early before the yellow jackets snorkelers and enjoy good viz, take the tricycle.
    - If you prefer to swim within a sardine poo storm and loads of other divers, then go with the boat... and good luck at taking decent photos.

    Does the resort somehow support/organize the tricycle tour?
