Fish Trip at Malcapuya Island Coron

Let’s Fish trip!

Fish trip, is my made up term that actually means going underwater and looking for fishes and bond with them.

I love discovering new things, and going underwater is one of my bucket list but I was afraid for years because I seem to be traumatized in my younger years when I almost drowned. And Coron Palawan seems to be the cure of my trauma and the answer to my bucket list.

I’ve been and challenge a couple of times to go diving, but I was thinking twice about it because I’m way too afraid. So snorkeling is a great and ideal first step for me to comfortable and conquer my trauma with swimming, and I did not regret doing it at Malcapuya Island in Coron Palawan.

The Malcapuya Island is actually owned by Henann Group of Resorts, it’s not yet developed or have been commercialized like other islands in the Philippines but I’m guessing they’re planning to.

The island has white beach like Boracay Philippines, beautiful view, and all. Well, see for yourself.

It is said to be one of the virgin islands in Coron, and surely it is.

I do hope that they keep it this way, a bit of cleaning up is needed though but look at this. It's a great place to just stay away and getaway from the busy city life.

We chilled for a while at the tent, and the local there prepared for the boat for us.

Yes, we'll need the boat. You'll not hop into it. You'll just be dragged by the boat so you'll be able to see underwater at the same time and of course get to the destination faster. No worries, it's not like really deep there just deep enough.

Bring a life jacket if you want, and if you're unsure of yourself in being able to hold on well to the rope. But I didn't have any problems with it.

On our way, I started to see some fishes. They don't want to do anything with me though. They just ran away from me while I'm being dragged and holding on to the boat.

Just few minutes later, we stopped and we saw few fishes. So, I was wondering why at first we stopped. I looked up, and saw the boat man getting something. He told me to look down, he'll be feeding the fish. And viola!

They just pass by me, and sometimes all over me so I walked out to get a better shot of them.

There were also some who seem to realize that I can be feeding them too. So they were the ones following me around and when I got back at our hotel, at Asia Grand View I realized they're camera friendly too. LOL.

They seem to be curious too with what I am holding that they're passing and going around my GoPro.

They love the camera. They love posing and curious with me at the same time, plus they're being fed.

The other boat man who swim with us calls my attention, and dive. I then saw this.

Hello Nemo! Where's Dori?

The fish there also seems to be familiar with the boat man, our guide. They're all circling around them.

After about 30 minutes of being amazed and entertained by these fishes, the boat man said that we'll need to go, there's another spot they want to bring us where the clams are at. So we hold on to the rope again, and be dragged the blogger draggers! LOL.

Just few meters away, we then stopped again, and saw these.

They have fewer clams there but they're all a lot bigger. But I'm not sure why they're all alone there. But hey, here's a closer look underwater.

The other guide dive in, and grabbed one of the clams and bring it out of the water to show us.

And I was like, "Okay, you look way better underwater." and the clam just suddenly...

It spit on me!

But really, he just closed it doors. LOL.

It was an amazing experience at Malcapuya Island, I say I highly recommend for you to try out this island yourself and experience this yourself if you're planning to visit Coron.

I did not regret this FISH TRIP! I'll be looking and I'm actually craving for another fish trip! hopefully soon.
