I finally got my dose of the much needed Vitamin Sea.

So, my friends and I went snorkeling in Moalboal, hence the title. We originally planned to go to Apo Island to swim with the turtles, but due to certain circumstances, we weren’t able to push through with our plan. Anyway, scroll down to know more about this trip!

Our first stop was the fish sanctuary. There were a lot of colorful fishes, but they were all so small and they were swimming near the bottom while I was just floating calmly on the surface.

The thing that I was most excited about when planning this trip was the Sardine Run at Panagsama Beach. These photos cannot even justify how magical it felt when I finally got to see it.

The last area that we went to was just near Moalboal beach. In it was an enormous bed of beautiful corals.

This is our guide, kuya Dodong Jacquez. We found him online when we were reading blogs about snorkeling in Moalboal. He’s very nice and a really great snorkeling guide! If you’re planning to go snorkeling in Moalboal, you should contact him (+63 923 9376 699). You can visit three different snorkeling areas in 3 hours for only P2,000!

After snorkeling, we rented a cottage at the beach so that we could have our lunch. The beach, however, was a bit disappointing. We were planning to take a quick dip, but we changed our minds. Apart from the beach being crowded and noisy (which is normal during peak season), people threw their rubbish everywhere. It’s sad that a lot of people don’t give a sh*t about where they throw their rubbish anymore and yet, they complain when things go bad.

If you’re heading to the beach with your friends/family/relatives and you’re planning to spend the entire day there, make sure you bring a huge plastic bag or your own garbage bin to throw your rubbish in. Don’t let nature suffer from your actions. Be responsible.

Since we didn’t go swimming anymore, we just took pictures along the shore. lol
