The Coron Island Tour Part I

“The newt play the flute, The carp play the harp, The plaice play the bass, And they soundin’ sharp The bass play the brass, The chub play the tub, The fluke is the duke of soul. The ray he can play, The ling’s on the strings, The trout’s rocking out, The blackfish she sings, The smelt and the sprat, They know where it’s at, And oh, that blowfish blow! Ha-ha” – Sebastian, The Little Mermaid

A lot of people who I have talked to seemed to be pretty curious with our Coron trip. I think people have been wanting to go but some might have thought that Coron is only for divers because it is, in fact, very popular with its wreck and reefs dive spots. Truth be told, this was also my hesitation at first, but to set the record straight, this island is for everyone who wants to relax and have a good time. For beach-lovers, this place is heaven.
 
On our second day at Coron, we have decided to go on an island tour. It was only practical for us to get the package offered by El Rio. The itinerary was: Barracuda Lake, Kayangan (for some, it’s Cayangan) Lake, Siete Pecados and Maquinit Hot Springs. Looking at several tours offered by the resort, there still seems to be a lot of places which we could have gone to such as the Calauit Safari Farm, Culion and several other islands. But due to lack of time, we settled with the Coron Loop Tour instead.

Boats for the tours leave the Coron wharf. There are several tours leaving towards the different scenic spots the whole day.

Our first stop was Barracuda Lake. They said that this lake was inhabited by barracudas before, thus the name. There was nothing much to do here except enjoy its beautiful waters and the surrounding sceneries. This place though would be very enticing for divers.

After Barracuda Lake, we moved to Kayangan Lake (Cayangan). We trekked for several minutes before we arrived at this enclosed beauty. This is where our tour guide set up our lunch also.

This place is so pretty. You can snorkel here but diving is not allowed.
