Fancy a sailing cruise in the Philippines? We will have to be friends first . . . in return you will enjoy some of the prettiest sailing cruise destinations in the Philippines and chance to meet some of the ocean’s most astounding creatures.

We set sail from Laiya, Batangas, with the intent of starting our five day sailing cruise by crossing to the island of Marinduque; to be specific, to the Tres Reyes island chain, off the southwest of Marinduque Island. However, the wind did not favor this plan and so, fairly early, we changed course for the volcano island of Sibale (also known as Conception and Maestre de Campo, depending on the map you use).

Professor Nigel Peake observes: ‘They’ve done this for millions of years before we ever thought of it.’ The good professor, although he does not make the specific connection in his statement, is referring to just one aspect of biodiversity and how it helps humans do more with less by observing how Mother Nature (biodiversity) has all the answers if we can just keep her alive long enough to show us. The article, in which owls and biodiversity are the object, was focused on improving the design of aircraft and wind-turbines.

The first and most obvious reason to save Dahican Beach is that very few people have ever been here and imbibed its beauty on a sunny afternoon, with a gentle Pacific Ocean breeze bringing the sounds of dolphins frolicking in front of a beach that they know is protected by Man . . .

For many years Ecotourism in the Philippines has had bad-press, and justifiably so, e.g. tourist attractions that allow the visitor to observe the natural environment from the comfort of a gas-guzzling SUV traveling a concrete road, riding a zipline through a manicured portion of forest or, visiting a theme park, set in a portion of cultivated land beside the forest (from which it was hewn), to observe a selection of caged animals.

Sibuyan is the one place on Earth where the Environment is predominant and consumerism virtually non-existent.
