After docking, we first settled in a nearby cottage and chose our menu for lunch. There are lots of store here offering "paluto" like in seaside market. But it's kinda pricey too. Oh well, we have no choice, since we skipped brekky because of the dolphins.
And also, aside from snorkeling gears there are aqua shoes for rent. We got it for P100 per pax, yeah, it's pricey! But it was originally priced at P150. And imho, you don't need at all. Because the water is kinda high and the corals are not that shallow. But to be safe, go wear one! Haha :)
With the searing heat and sleepiness coming my way, I immediately asked our crew if we can do snorkeling right away. We transferred into a smaller boat and our guide manually paddle our boat to the sanctuary. And then there it was! The so many fishes! I love Balicasag!
And our tour guide was really good, since I can swim a bit he brought me around the area, and I saw some nemo and other colorful fishes. And I also saw the sorta black hole, kinda creepy but cool!
I love it when I saw the sun rays endlessly shine its way through deep black hole, just amazing! :)

the fishes and corals in balicasag are the fruits of the people's effort to protect the underwater treasures. i hope they will continue this to the next generation.ReplyDelete
Wow, I never realized Balicasag is so beautiful. Hopefully I can go there someday to snorkel and dive :) Great pics!ReplyDelete
I was amazed by the crystal clear water. :) And it looks like that Nemo is also happy to see you. :p Ganda talaga ng Pinas.ReplyDelete
WOW! I love every picture that you've posted. The crystal blue water perfectly adorns the coast's white sands. I'm so happy to see Nemo as well.:)ReplyDelete
Getting surrounded by colorful fishes there has been great experience. To attract more fishes you need to bring plenty of crackers. I've composed my own fictional travel adventure about my experience there. For those who wants to see more underwater pictures you can check the link below.ReplyDelete
