Snorkeling at Pambato Reef

After our lunch at Pandan Island and fish feeding in Snake Island, we went to our last stop in our Honday Bay tour — the Pambato Reef.

You would be surprised that beneath the pair of floating cottages lies an underwater paradise. You don’t need special training or special equipment to have a peek at the beautiful marine ecosystem; a pair of mask and snorkel will suffice.

Unlike the previous year wherein we get to freely snorkel within the confines of the calm waters of Pambato reef, the current was quite strong during our last visit. We had to be assisted by our reef guide throughout our whole snorkeling activity. Because of the strong current, we weren’t able to explore much of the reef. For most of the time, I had to make sure that I was still holding on the rope that our guide had set for us.

Aside from snorkeling activities, tourists can also fish feed. The second cottage is reserved for fish feeding activities. I’m not quite sure though on why the fishermen disallow fish feeding at the cottage near the snorkeling area.

We didn’t spend much time at the Pambato reef since the winds started to show signs of getting stronger. We left Pambato Reef and went back to the Honday Bay port where our van from the Maple Tours was waiting.
