08/08/2004 Seth Bareiss (Avg: 2.26 Review) - Usually a boat dive, the "cathedral" is a simple thich cross set up in 45' of water beside two large rocks that almost reach the surface. It's a so-so dive because of moderate visibility and limited life. (This part of the Philippines is heavily fished.) I've dived VERY happily in a nearby sandy, uninhabited bay, but wouldn't bother doing a second dive at the Cathedral. Be forewarned that Anilao is extreme countryside. Your hotel will be civilized, but will be your only source of "facilities". Staying in Anilao, you'll be impressed by people's friendliness and accommodating nature, but you must constantly be on guard for unexpected charges. Hotel food, for example, may be free-- but any liquid refreshment with meals are 8 bucks a glass ! Hotels may be ridiculously expensive, by Philippine standards. A ride into town may cost $20 in the hotel's jeepney, but just a dollar in the public jeepney used by locals. ...And so on. Philippine dive masters impressed me as thoughtful, experienced, safe, and accommodating.
