The next stop was something that tickled my curiosity mind! THE TITANIC!!! 😂 hehe just kidding! Seriously speaking this post is all about shipwreck. According to our boatman (James) there were about 40 or more shipwrecks at the area but only a few of it were seen in Coron. Shipwreaks are scattered throughout the islands and some of it are still in one piece and completely intact.
SKELETON WRECK and LUSONG GUNBOAT are the only one I remember 😂(ang dami kasi nila) and one of my favorite one is LUSONG GUNBOAT because you can almost see the whole boat lying on the seabed. How wonderful is it because you can actually go and stand on the tip of that boat when the tide is low. I wasn’t able to do that because I’m not a good swimmer 😉.
This is the continuation of my Coron escapade, My second part of continuous journey!. I have my previous post before and if you haven’t yet read the first one, click here. ☚
We started the day having a breakfast in Amphibiko lodge. Breakfast time to start the adventure! right? 😉 So I had a small serving of Cornsilog which is a short term for Corned beef, sinangag (fried rice) and pritong itlog (fried egg) plus a cup of kapeng barako that somehow helps complete my meal! then off to another expedition(but seriously I’m still GUTOM!! haha gutum much!)
Off into the ocean and we went to our first stop SIETE PICADOS: We went snorkeling there and I was so delighted to see different kind of fish, especially the stripe one! I like it so much! Many of it like to swim with me too but I was just at the stairs holding my lifevest (takut eh!) 😂. The boatman told us not to step on the bottom because there are many sea urchins laying or hiding on to the corals so better be careful guys! (it is bit scary! right? but because I am not a good swimmer, it’s okey for me to staying afloat hehe. All in all we just spend 30 minutes in that place taking pictures and exploring the place.
In order to get to BARRACUDA LAKE: Our next stop! is to climb up again on tricky limestone rock with the help of this dos-por-dos wooden stairs hehehe 😊. The pathway to the lake was too small that allowing only a few people to hang around (bawal malikot or else hulog ka! hahaha)
We had our trip last February 16-20 this year. My friends and I went to Coron,Palawan via Cebu Pacific. We availed one of DIY Coron’s service.
