    "Malapascua's Monad Shoal was recently made into a marine park to protect thresher sharks.
    "This is the only place threshers can be seen every day," says Andrea Agarwal, owner of Thresher Shark Divers.
    Threshers' tails can make up half their length, and they can grow up to six meters long.
    "If you are here for a few days you will almost certainly get a good sighting," says Agarwal.
    Divers will need to be open water certified as threshers are usually found in deep waters.
    The best time to see the shy sharks is in the early morning.

    I went to see the thresher sharks there back in 2008 and got up very early to get on the dive boat to go to Monad shoal.

    Then I met my wife after the dives which has resulted in me always having to get up early because of the kids.
    The Philippines can change you life in an instant ;)
