Pescador-ing by the Sea

When we woke up the following day after the Canyoneering thing, our bodies were all sore. Seemed like we couldn't move our legs! But! That didn't stop us from getting another quickie breakfast and heading off to the beautiful island of Pescador! 

The first thing to do was to look for the lovely dolphins under the sea. We made noise by hitting the boat with whatever hard object we had in our hands and waited until they surfaced. Luckily, we found lots of them! And they weren't irritated by the noise we made. I wish I had food to feed them. They were just so lovely!

 Then we went to Pescador Island, swam for a while and went in the middle of the sea to look for the Pawikan (Sea Turtle). Sorry, I don't have photos to show you but we swam with it and the experience was just soooo nice.

And here's a photo of us just outside the nice little house we stayed at in Moalboal.

And here's our last stop, swimming with the Sardines.

Cebu Water Adventure

So my previous post was about our first day slash first night in Cebu. Now, I bring you... what happened the "early" morning after. So we woke up at around 2 AM, rode the bus to Moalboal, Cebu at about 3 and arrived at around 5 or 6AM. We had to go to Moalboal first before going to Badian (the starting point of our Canyoneering experience) because that was the place where we found this pretty neat and nice place to make it through the night before we headed off again for the dolphin-watching and swimming with the sardines and Pawikan stuff at Pescador Island. 

Anyway, we did a "quickie" breakfast and drove all the way to our cute little house by the sea. We changed into our RASH GUARDS (the typical outfit worn by people when you search for "Canyoneering" photos on Google) and drove all the way up to Badian, Cebu.

Much to our surprise, we were not ALONE. There were hundreds of tourists [mostly Filipinos] awaiting to experience this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

When we arrived together with our guides, we immediately put on our head gears and life jackets. They gave us some serious reminders before immersing into the cool blue waters as not following simple instructions could be detrimental to our safety. Thus, we always stayed together plus the numerous head-counts every time we arrived at certain points of our 3-hour journey.

The diving part was what scared me the most. There were cliffs as high as 30 feet from the water but you need not go into that hellish experience if you're really afraid of heights. The highest I jumped was around 10-15 feet and I was soooo satisfied with that. Haha!
Anyway, we did a lot of crazy things like throwing really silly jokes just to calm the others who weren't so fond of jumping, laughing at those who made mistakes while following the guides' orders, doing certain formations and singing while in the water... It was just FUN!

In my next post, I'm gonna show you what happened at Pesacador Island in Moalboal, Cebu.
