Snorkeling in Balicasag Island May 25, 2008
When you're in Panglao, after dolphin watching, you may want to visit Balicasag Island. From your boat, you will be transferred to a small boat that does not have motor. They did this to protect the sanctuary.

P150 (apprx $4) is charged per head. You will also have a guide.

The marine sanctuary is a haven for snorkeling enthusiasts like me. Clown fish, a school of jackfish, corals, sea cucumbers, star fishes are present. Not to mention a hundred more species of animals under the sea.

My guide was friendly and he even taught me to dive so i can touch the corals.

I even saw a large turtle!

It was definitely an awesome experience.
