Exploration is our one true passion and is considered PHILTECH’s holiday from work. In 1994 we began exploring never-been-dived reefs and deep atolls while working on a liveaboard. When we became TECHNICAL, we set our sights to underwater caves, wrecks and springs. Since then we have been up and down the archipelago, sometimes with unexpected bonuses. Like while digging out a spring in Southern Leyte, we found from residents that within the same period each year, a congregation of whalesharks feed at the mouth of Sogod Bay, just a few kilometers away from the spring.
