    Hi, If I want to dive at least to experience the sardine run and maybe pescador cathedral. How much time would I need? I plan to arrive in Moalboal on the night of 5/15 and dive on 5/16. I'm not too sure how long it will take us to do those 2 dive sites. I'm hoping I would have time to visit Kawasan falls after. If the time is too tight, I can probably skip tumalog falls on 5/15, and we can just head straight to moalboal after our whale shark tour in oslob. Maybe I can still do 1 afternoon dive? Your suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you! Luis
