Any moto riders/scuba divers want to do a trip in the Philippines?

Hi everyone,

Like most of us working folks, my time and money are limited, and I have any hobbies. I love taking motorcycle vacations, but it often comes at the expense of my other hobbies such as rick climbing, hiking, scuba diving, mountain biking, etc.

I have been living in the Philippines for over a year now, but work has kept me traveling in other countries and I have not done as much exploring in the Philippines as I would like. Especially with scuba diving since it is hard to fly to an island, dive, wait 24 hours, and get back to work in a weekend.

So I have been toying with the idea of taking a motorcycle/scuba diving vacation. However, to keep costs down and to have more fun, it would be great to share this journey with others. And since we are not flying, we can easily move from one diving destination to the next.

I am looking at planning a trip for January 2014, for about 2 weeks. Is there anyone who wants to escape winter and join me for some world class riding and scuba diving? I can send more details about the exact route and diving destinations to anyone who sends me a PM.

Thanks,
Frances

Oh man this sounds like the perfect trip! I was living out in the marshall islands for a couple years diving. Pohnpei is an amazing place as well. I just wish I would have made it out to the Philippines or Bali to get some diving in.

So are you going to be carrying dive gear?

If I can get 3 more people to join me, then we can get a backup vehicle that can carry extra stuff like dive gear. I do have my own dive gear and I would prefer to dive with it since I know my buoyancy with my won gear. However, gear can be rented everywhere so if people don't have their own stuff, or they don't want to drag it here, then that is not an issue either.
