Saturday 23rd November 2013. Calypso Diving finally set sail to Maniguin Island after post poning the trip due to bad weather.Maniguin Islandis 26 nautical miles from Boracay and has around 900 people living there. The community is very isolated and depend upon sea weed farming and fishing to make ends meet. We departed at 4am and arrived at Maniguin Island around 9am after 5 hours on the high seas. It was all worth the effort though. On arrival we were greeted by the Captain of the island along with all the families and children. With the help and coordination ot the Captain we were able to distribute the relief aid to the families who had been living off sea weed and coconuts with no fresh water. Calypso Diving would like to thank Beno Iseli, Kevin Goodwin, Olle Anderson, Johan Munthe, Jonas Jansson, Erik Logdberg, Kristian Nylen, The Rotary Club (Marlow), Andre Stalder, Lisbeth and Ruedi Kneubuehler, Carlota Cura, Tanja Bjoroy, Alberto P. Nunez, Klaus and Cornelia Aebi, Calypso Staff and everyone who helped out. A truely successful trip, thank you.
