For our tour in Calumbuyan Island and other snorkel sights, we availed the offering of www.cheapcorontravel.com whose day tour rate is 950php/person. 3 of our group went back to Manila that day so it is just me and my friend left. This time it is cheaper to avail of the per pax rates.
We were supposed to be 7 in the group as 5 Chinese tourists were supposed to join us but only one showed up (despite the fact they already paid in full). We made friends with Effie from Beijing, China. Effie said it was common among her ‘kababayan’ to pay for a tour but will not show up on the day. So our boat crew decided to move out without them at about 9am.
Our first stop was the Sangat wreck and coral garden, an hour and a half boat ride from Coron town.
After lunch we proceeded to snorkel site at Lusong’s Coral Garden with more corals to again. My underwater camera was really very useful in trips like this.
Then we went to the Lusong Gun boat wreck site. Many wrecks are found in this area around Coron bay as a Navy battle was waged here during World War 2 between the Americans and Japanese.
Then last in the itinerary was the hidden hot spring in the island where we have to go through a path between the mangroves. The water feels wonderful and we wished to stay longer but it is getting dark.
We left the site after 5pm arriving at Coron town at about 630pm.
The tour was tiring but our today adventures were truly worth it.
