With the outrigger boat to Virgin Island

by on Apr.07, 2010, under General

And again we have made one of these wonderful boat tours where you can have so much fun. As before, we rented the boat and the small crew of “Bantayan Cottages” who have indeed been guiding us in advance on our boat trips. Originally the plan was once going around Bantayan entirely by boat, but unfortunately, the skipper told us that it was not possible because of Bantayan City at low tide is not coming through with a boat. The explanation goes so far that the one who told us that, there sometimes only 10 centimetres of water, between the islands, and we do not intended to push the boat.

So we gave ourselves to our fate, and first visited a fishing village on the neighbouring island Hilantaga-to where we were looking at for a while the sleepy fishing village. It was interesting here was a visit of a carpenter on the beach who built a new outrigger boat. On our Question for another Island where are some small Beaches that are not fully populated our skipper Junjun told us about Virgin Island on a small hidden beach where they were almost always alone. Earlier, I made you a small photo of this sleepy bay. Here a photo of the large outrigger boat that is well intended and is suitable for 10-15 people. It is particularly suitable for small groups because they already own just because of its size provides much more security and comfort than the usual small boats to get hired as usual.

    hi. My sister and I will go to Cebu this Feb3-5, and we are planning to go to bantayan on our 2nd day. I just want to ask the rate of their room? How much did you pay for the boat and how many islands did you visit (what are the names)? Hope you could still remember. THANKS
