Snorkeling in Port Barton
A personal boat tour cost us only 1200 PHP (around 27 dollars) and we arranged it only 30 minutes before departure. Once the deal was struck, Xiker went to buy lunches for us, while I sped off to pick up our cameras, towels and sunscreen.
We had the intention to go island hopping, but ended up visiting only one island for lunch, opting instead to spend our day snorkeling in a few different locations.
The coral reefs were resplendent, with thousands of colorful fish of who-knows-how-many-species, and we never got bored.
Hell, we were so mesmerized I completely forgot to reapply sun lotion and ended up getting one of the worst sunburns I’ve ever had, all over my backside. We ended up having to spend an extra day in Port Barton because I was in no shape to be traveling in jeepney and buses… Spent the next few weeks peeling like a snake, and boy, that was an itchy experience.
Anyhoo, managed to get a few cool pics of the underwater community around Port Barton! Totally thrilled to see how good our Nikon AW100 works underwater.
