Day 2 Itinerary (Aliguay Island)
We woke up early as our service (van transfer to/from Sicayab Port) will fetch us at 7:00am. We arrived at the Port at around 8:00am. Another group (doctors with medical mission) also was there and we boarded the Sepertina around 8:30 am.
The waves are big and it took us 45 minutes to reach Aliguay Island. Our guide offered us to snorkel. And we did! (Snorkelling gadgets – P200.00 and boat rent P700)
I enjoyed this so much. When the guide dove into the water, I asked him if I can do that too! By the way, the depth is 40 feet! The guide told me to remove my life vest and then I was floating! (Yehey!)
However, the waves scared me as I do not have my vest on. After a while, I decided not to dive and got back to the boat. 😦
We got back to the island and ate our lunch (Included in the Island Tour Package)! After that, we toured the island (using a golf cart, 50 pesos per hour) and found that the Ranillos have a rest house in the island.
We returned to the resort and it rained. During that time, I received a text that there was a tsunami alert (Japan was hit by a 9.0 earthquake that caused a tsunami to hit the eastern side of the country). Luckily, Dipolog-Dapitan is not on the Pacific Sea side. When the rain stopped, we head back to Sicayab Port.
We reached Monina Pension house at around 5pm and decided to eat dinner. We ate at Kan-anan. The barbeque is 12 pesos each.
Since there is nothing much to do and because of what happened to Japan, we decided to go back to the pension house and watch the news.
