tubbataha reef, philippines – cornered hawksbill

tested out my new sony high definition (HD) underwater video camera with light & motion housing at tubbataha reef national park in the philippines last month. tubbataha reef is listed as a world heritage site and it is perhaps the premiere dive spot in all of the philippines. the reef is located southeast of palawan right smack in the middle of the sulu sea. the visibility was incredible. clear blue water topping almost 200 feet. the water was warm (30 degrees) and currents light. below is a short video clip of our group chasing one of the resident hawksbill sea turtles. it was definitely the star of the show with everyone taking photos of him. unfortunately it ran out of swimming space and we cornered it, but still allowed him room to escape! here is just a simple video clip testing my new HD video camera. more tubbataha videos to come. enjoy.
