On our second day in Laiya, we rented a boat to take us snorkeling in "Lamesang Bato". The banca rental association of Laiya saw that our family was just a small one and with two little kids at that so they arranged to get us a small banca. We agreed to pay Php 700 for the boat ride that took us about 4 kilometers off the beach and stayed with us during the 45-minute snorkeling time.
It was our younger girls' first experience and once they entered the water and donned their goggles, they were awed by the sight of the corals and fishes.

Note: This is NOT an underwater shot. I just focused my camera about a foot above the water and I was able to capture this :)
We brought bread so we could feed the fishes and the boatman even helped us do this. The girls exclaimed every now and then.
What a grand time they had!
