Darren Cox, who, with his partner, was a regular diver at Blue Ribbon for many years, did his Divemaster course with us, and also became a friend of so many of our guests, has partnered up with Jon at Blue Ribbon Anilao.
He is promising to come and make the Pizza oven himself, hopefully soon. Darren is a great and passionate photographer and has been to more dive destinations than anyone we know, yet favours diving around the Verde Island passage due to the complete abundance of life here.
Renovations have been a bit slow this week as we have had some terrible weather due to a Typhoon to the north of the Philippines, that has stranded many people in Puerto Galera over the last week, including Becca and Ryan!
We’ve been working on the inside of the camera room and diveshop, as well as started to tidy up and paint the kitchen, to get ready for the stainless steel counters. Scaffolding has gone up ready to do some minor repairs on the roof, when it stops raining! Bit of a wet building site at the moment, but hopefully we will have the dive shop finished in the next week or so, along with the camera room. Obvious priorities first!
