It was an impromptu plan to go for a last hurrah this summer. We planned the outing just a day before the getaway. Took a van from SM terminal going to Tonggo at Lapu Lapu City where the boat will be waiting for us. Fare was about 65 bucks per person. A boat was reserved the day before to take us to the island which costs about P2500. Alas when we arrived, the banca already left since the call time was 7 AM but we arrived around 8. We had to wait at the wharf for a more friends to join us as well while we wait for the boat. While waiting, we treated ourselves to watching the outrigger boats going in and out of the wharf and chatting with our foreign guest.
It was about a 30-minute ride from the wharf to Nalusuan Island. At times the outrigger had to run slow because there were parts where the waters were very shallow that we can even see starfishes and sea urchins.
There is a foot bridge connecting the quay to the island and once you get there, you can either rent tables for the day trip or get a cottage to stay overnight but the rooms are quite expensive. For those who are not quite swimmers, the resort offers life vests for rent as well as snorkel gear.
All in all twas a beautiful day to relax and unwind as well as a fitting send off to a good friend.
