Alegria Dive Resort [Getting Goofy with the Statues]

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

Hello everyone!

Aren't you fed up with freediving videos yet? Well, there's more coming after this. I have the last video in our last dive in Alegria after this and I'll have @sabanalchristian edit my Catmon freedive. I think I showed a sneak peek on that freedive, but I haven't the photos and videos yet. Expect to have them uploaded in the coming days or weeks.

In this video, we explored another freedive site in Alegria which is a few towns away from Moalboal. Still the continuation of my birthday freedive, we decided to book in Alegria Dive Resort for just one night because we were intrigued by that Medusa statue that was circulating online. We wanted to see that statue with our own eyes to be the judge if it's as good as it's portrayed in social media.

We arrived at the resort in the afternoon and wasted no time trying freediving in those waters. It was our first time there and we didn't anticipate that Php 750 ($15) freediving fee! We didn't know it was that big for a freediving fee when it was just free in Moalboal. Claire (@indayclara) was not aware of that either so it was out of our budget, but we always bring extra pocket money for cases like that so I decide to just pay for them since it was my birthday anyway.

The owner of the resort briefed us on the things to do while freediving and told us on what to expect there. He told us that they put something new underwater just a few hours ago. He said we might be the first one to try that underwater structure (see at the end of the video).

The statues there are Buddha, Knights of Templar, Poseidon, Medusa. They said there's a statue of Mary, but I haven't seen it. Buddha and Knights of Templar are at 3-4 meters, Poseidon at 5 meters, and Medusa is at 7 meters. There's also a swing underwater just for photo ops.

Overall it was a fun experience except for that freediving fee which was completely not anticipated. Plus I got to chase a turtle.

This video was still taken and edited by @sabanalchristian who had been very accommodating to all our requests of shots and montages to try. He used Pouring Out by Asher Fulero as background music for this video. Some of you have asked for the background music in my previous videos and I apologize I wasn't able to answer them, but rest assured those are royalty-free music and there's no need for attribution.

I guess that's all for this post! See you on the next one! Hopefully, it will be a different one. I planned to have a break with freediving posts, but I got lazy conceptualizing on what to post so it might be another freediving adventure again. I'm still on that bliss though. Reminiscing that freediving experience through these videos really made me feel special on that birthday.

Salamat po! 😄 Grabe jud ni ka awesome na experience for me. Like birthday pa gyud nako.

Your freediving videos are always relaxing to watch. They made a freedivers playground underwater with the statues and the swing. I didn't expect to see the bike.

Really? I guess whatever you're feeling at the time the video is taken will really translate and radiate to the viewers, no? I feel really relaxed underwater. Or maybe because @sabanalchristian is really good in editing. 😂

I think the statues and the swing was the cause of the Php 750 freediving fee. The bike was an instant hit.

Yes, you both did a great job. You are so at ease underwater, the relaxed vibe translates well to the viewer.
