Family Living on Boats

The Filipino Muslim group earning a living through

sea diving and entrepreneurship

Once you visit the sea port waters of Zambaoanga City, you will be amazed to see these little boats selling coral reefs, hand crafts, and penny diving. 

Badjaos are known to be living by their house - boats but with cross - cultures, I can't accurately say that these folks are all Badjaos. But, what indeed  makes this unique living astonishing is the fact that kids as young as babies are thrown to the seas to make them learn how to swim. That indeed can be quite barbaric but for them, it's part of their  unique culture.

So, the next time you see these small boats, throw a penny or two, and you will only see great dives and big smiles.
