"I'm so glad and excited to be crowned as the first Miss SCUBA Philippines 2012", Janice Lubina remarked. She further added, "We must give back to nature. I will do my best to set an example by raising awareness and encourage everyone to keep our oceans clean."
The Miss SCUBA International Organization is founded by Mr. Robert Lo, who is also the proprietor of the Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART) and Mabul Water Bungalows. Mr. Lo is a strong believer in sustainable development within the realms of our marine environment, with the hopes of sharing the advocacy and wonders of the ocean world with the mantra: "Saving Oceans Through Beauty". He extended his mission here in the Philippines by appointing Mac Taug as the National Director for the pageant.
Among other highlights include the titles for Karla Camille Manalonzo as Miss Marine Conservation 2012, Christine Paula Love Berneso as Miss Marine Tourism 2012, Jane May Cuyugan as Miss SCUBA Philippines 2012 1st runner up and Ma. Angela Espinosa as Miss SCUBA Phlippines 2012 2nd runner up.
