Awesome opportunity for a trip in a month and trying to plan a trip without having the time to research - oh the possibilities! We'll fly into Manila. Where do we go from there? Reading about Dunsal Bay for whale sharks, awesome variety of diving @ Cebu and the wrecks at Busunga. Can we do all that in 8-10 days? What's the best way to travel around? We'd love to manage to hit all three areas, but is that too much? What can we realistically do and what is the best way to do it? We're up for a bit of liveaboard and staying on shore if that's the best option. Any advice would be so appreciated in terms of travel options in country, places/boats to stay, dive shops. We're both advanced divers/nitrox with 200+ dives under our belt - excited to explore the other side of our blue planet!
Thx in advance!

sorry for the late response! 8-10 days? plan on one stop! two at most, if they are near each other!
Moalboal, and a day trip to slob to Snorkel with Whalesharks! Donsol allows Snorkeling only also! Leyte does allow limited Divng with the Whalesharks! Wrecks Subic bay, or Coron!
Moalboal, Coron, can only be reached by Air, Donsol, ca bereached by ground, but most take a short flight, since the drive is on poorly maintained roads, and cold take 12-16 hours from Manila!
