Hello there!

Hi! My name is Ara. I am the writer, photographer, editor, social media manager, and everything in between, of this scuba diving, sustainable travel and ocean conservation website. I am currently a PADI Rescue Diver and have been doing ocean dives for the past 7 years.

Since launching my blog in 2019, I have been working toward my goal to dive in 20 of the best locations in the Philippines. I hope I can inspire you to travel sustainably, scuba dive in the best locations, and love the ocean as much as I do!

So join me in my adventures as I find bliss (above and) underwater!
