Camiguin Ferry Accident – update

Camiguin Balbagon Corals

Camiguin Ferry Accident: The Super Shuttle Ferries #11 and #15 stranded during a towing on November 26. After damaging many coral blocks, the Super Shuttle Ferry 15 had been floated and towed away. Super Shuttle Ferry 11 is still on the beach in Balbagaon, Camiguin.  Read here what had happened.

Camiguin escaped a disaster when typhoon Hagupit/Ruby came in from the Pacific ocean. Two stranded ferries laid off the coast of Balbagon. This coast is much liked by divers.

And now?

After the US vessel USS Guardian hit the  Tubbataha reef in January 2013, everybody shouted “PAY!”.  The US Navy seems to have paid – we do not have any official record. And now in Camiguin? Who will pay for the damages in Balbagon? Balbagon is a place where many divers discover corals life.

Above pictures had been taken in Balbagon in September this year. We’ll try to investigate as soon as Super Shuttle Ferry 11 is also towed off the coast. ‘Nemo’ is absolutely not amused of the incident.
