 Underwater Festival 2011 Logo


The 2011 Underwater Festival is a Photo and Video Shootout competition and festival held across 10 days in September 2011 simultaneously in the whole of Australasia. Like an 'Underwater Earth Hour' the aim is to capture a snapshot of the region to show the world what we've got to lose.

Join the competition and submit your photos or videos of the spectacular marine life to be found around the sites of Moalboal, Cebu. We have a lot to offer - the sardine run at Pescador Island, up close shots of turtles, amazing macro critters and magnificent had and soft corals. Book your September vacation at Turtle Bay and take great photos and video; go to Reservations at Turtle Bay Dive Resort
