Snorkeling Experience at Coral Garden, Puerto Galera

Indeed, Puerto Galera has lots to offer; from land tours, to island hopping to para sailing, one of the activities I most looked forward to was snorkeling the Coral Garden of San Antonio Island.

Sadly, we were not prepared in capturing the beauty and serenity of the Coral Garden (empty battery for the Underwater Camera since we partied all night and forgot to recharge the battery)

These moments, I wish I have a GoPro, or a waterproof protective casing for my S720.

 

We were dragged by small boats along the whole stretch of the Coral Garden. We fed the fishes with the bread we bought in the port. Some  of my mates tempted to eat the bread since we did not have any breakfast that morning but opt not to because feasting our eyes with the spectacle is more fulfilling! Atleast that’s the case for me 🙂

 

I saw Dory, I saw Scar Face, but I didn’t Find Nemo

Noong nakarating ako sa lupain ng Basilan ay kapansin-pansin dito ang mga plantasyon ng nga rubber tree/ puno ng goma.

Sa bawat puno nito ay kanila itong hinihuwaan ng pa-spiral upang dumaloy ang dagta nito patungo sa isang naliit ng lalagyan upang makolekta. Makalipas naman na maghilom ang mga sugat ng puno o kaya naman ay walang katas na ang nalabas dito, ay saka naman aanihin ito (latex sap). At dadalhin sa isang pabrika para iproseso at gawing goma. Ilan sa mga planta na ito ay ang Goodyear, Goodrich, Firestone at maging ang lokal na kompanyang Menzi Corporation.
