I ♥ Bohol: Balicasag and Virgin Island

We woke up early in the morning to witness the wild dolphins near Balicasag Island which one of the  great and exciting attraction when you visit Bohol. I love dolphins! They are intelligent and loving creature and  I love seeing those natural smiles on their faces!

As you can see there are other boats approaching to witness the dolphins. I felt like I was in a computer games and whoever see the dolphins first will win! hahaha

 Here the are! Wohoho! I could help but to be excited upon seeing these lovely creatures!

I know, I know my photo sucks! I was having a hard time catching up with them. They are so fast that I wanted to look at them first before taking photos!The dolphins shows lasts for only 15-30 minutes and will no longer jump out of the water or show their fins because of  hot climate above the sea level.

 Next: Balicasag Island

 Approaching the Balicasag Island to do some snorkeling baby!

Balicasag Island is gifted with nice spot in diving and snorkeling. As we approach the island, our boatman was already waiting for us.We rented our snorkeling gears and headed to the site. Unlike other tour packages, our boat man actually guide us during our snorkeling gig:)

 Look how clear the water is!

It was actually peak season when we visited Bohol so there are tons of tourist doing some snorkeling and diving in Balicasag.Remember to bring some bread for fish feeding. Hmm, I wish one day to buy an underwater camera so i can have a chance to take photos under water. But  I tell you, It was amazing underwater. It was like another world out there. Coral reefs are like castles, and fish are like prince and princesses wearing their colorful clothes.

It was fun, hot summer day! Bohol indeed  is one of the provinces that has finest beach. The water was so clear and they have beautiful corals! Snorkeling never failed to amazed us but we did enjoy more snorkeling in deep water that of shallow one.

We changed our clothes at the island. and headed to our next stop: Virgin Island

Not far from the Balicasag island where the less explored virgin island is located. My uncle loved this place. The island isn't that big so we explored it by just walking around. There were vendors selling shells and sea urchin which my uncle tried and didn't like it at all. Hahaha

Actually, there are a lot of people in that island during that day. A lot of them were families having a bonding time together by picnicking.

 After exploring the island and have our skin burned, we went to  small store where we bought banana cue, buko juice and puto.Yummy!

                    Grabe, neger na talaga ako dito.

After a while, we headed back to our boat and return to Panglao for our Pangalo Island tour. We will have our lunch at BOHOL BEE FARM! Excited!

The beautiful and pristine beach of Panglao Island, Bohol. I had a great time exploring these Island. We are so lucky to have this crystal clear water beaches, powdery sand and amazing underwater gems.
