After a good night's sleep, we decided to go to 100 Islands which is located in Alaminos, Pangasinan. Honestly, I wasn't sure what we'd see there. I was told it's just a long boat ride and I wasn't thrilled about that.
This was the first thing we saw when we got to 100 Islands
As expected, we were swarmed with vendors mostly of hats as well as 'middle-men [for the boat rides] as soon as we got off the vehicle. Our driver who's used to this kind of things did most of the talking with the middle-man. While waiting for our 'negotiator' we decided to choose a Sun Hat for me. I was the only without one so I got me one. A pink one! Ha!
Anyway, we were told that the boat ride could take up to 4 hours depending on what we wanted to do. If we only wanted to see the islands without getting off the boat, then it would only take about an hour. Since we weren't sure what we wanted to do, we decided to rent the boat for the whole afternoon. I was pleasantly surprise because the boat ride was very refreshing. I was kinda' expecting that it's going to be scary but it wasn't. The only scary part was the getting off the boat to see a couple of the islands up close. Here are some snaps we took while we were on the boat and while checking out 2 of the islands - Governor Cove & Cuenco Cave.
Our rented boat
Since we didn't have a lot of time on our hands, we only checked 2 of the islands. We however went around to see the other famous islands up close but without getting off the boat anymore.
There was ne island there where people can pitch a tent and stay for the night. We obviously didn't do that but we saw some people there doing just that.
Next stop...Fort Ilocandia.
