El Nido: Fish Feeding at Simizu Island

Simizu Island was the third destination on our first island hopping day tour. The massive limestone mountain range spreading over the island makes it one of the picturesque islands we've seen that day. The island plays host to a number of activities like kayaking, snorkeling, swimming or simply strolling down the beach. My most favorite among them was fish feeding.

After a delicious lunch and siesta, the boat left the island and took us to a spot a few hundred meters from the beach. Just off the shore of Simizu Island live a great number of vibrant corals and literally hundreds (or thousands?) of tropical fishes. As soon as we threw small pieces of bread into the water, shoals of diverse and colorful fishes surfaced and swarmed the bread like it was their last meal for the day. It was an absolutely incredible day of snorkeling, probably one of the best I've ever had.

Also, I wish I had a waterproof camera to capture the fascinating underwater scenery. Next time, I'll make sure to use a travelocity coupon and use the money I save to buy a good underwater camera. The teeming marine life in this part of El Nido overwhelmed me.

Gabz said...

Talaga? :D Buti wala namang may kumagat samin nun.

grabe no? Super linaw talaga ng tubig. You don't need to use underwater cam just to catch a glimpse of underwater world. Kaya na ng naked eye. In love na inlove talaga ako sa Palawan. =) Hindi ako magsasawang ipromote din siya sa blog. hehehe! Kating kati na kong bumalik.

great pics as usual. galeng! At yang mga batong yan? nag-iisip na ko ng pose sa kanila. hahah!

Gabz said...

ang ganda talaga ng el nido i just hope that one day it will get the same atention as phuket and ko phi phi islands in thailand. i remember amazing race,parang nakalimutan ng mga contestants for a while na they were on a race noong dumaan sila ng el nido,sabi pa nga nung nanalo na they would return

Gabz said...

@virgo - Thanks for dropping by. The common misconception of people is that El Nido is an expensive destination. Anyway, I'd rather want it to stay pristine and unspoiled :)

Robbie said...

Aargh! This is one of the places on my list for next year! The water is really different from anywhere else in the country. :D

Gabz said...

@Robbie - Yes, maganda at super linaw ng tubig dito. :)

ang ganda naman dyan!!! naexcite tuloy ako sa upcoming trip namin ng sister ko dyan sa El Nido.

ian roger poral said...

wow clear waters... no need for underwater cam I can see the rich marine life on the surface.
I had a conception that El Nido or a Palawan trip is an expensive if not the most expensive among the premier destinations of our country. But if it is that expensive, I'm sure it worthy if these are the places I'm going to see.

Pinoy Travel Freak said...

Yes, I really love the water. All along I really thought El Nido is an expensive destination but fortunately it's not :-)

tndcallphilippines said...
