MASINLOC Mangrove and Marine EcoTour

Mangrove Tree Planting  2 Days Itinerary

img_20161219_105331

 Masinloc is a first class municipality in the province of ZambalesPhilippines. The disputed Scarborough Shoal (under the names Pulo ng Panatag and Bajo de Masinlóc) is claimed by the Philippine government as within the town’s territorial jurisdiction. Due to the continued dispute over the shoal, this has negatively impacted fishermen of the community, reducing catch sizes and affecting the income and standard of living.

Mansinloc Mangrove and Marine Ecotour was organized to have an alternative livelihood for the fishing community at the same time, continue to protect and conserve nature. Located at Brgy. South Poblacion, the 18th-century San Andres Parish Church has been declared a National Cultural Treasure by the National Museum of the Philippines in July 2001.

MASINLOC
 
 Masinloc was among the native settlements visited by Juan de Salcedo in his Exploration of Zambales in San Andres in the barrio of Bani. Thirty-five years later, the town was founded on the southern mouth of the river across the bay from island of Salvia or San Salvador. However, the first convent was built on the eastern shore of Salvia, while the first town site, now covered by the sea, was just in front of the stone church. Actually, the town is now behind the church and is now behind the church and is growing in land across the river towards Collat, Lipay and Baloganon on the North. 
 
 The name Masinloc came from Majinloc, meaning a place where the jinloc, grows in abundance. Whether a tree, shrub, vine or what-not, the identity of the jinloc seems now lost to us, but there still exists a sitio near the town on the river bank which is called cajinlocaqan, that is full of jinloc. 
 Organized in 1607, the first town in the province of Zambales, Masinloc has come to play an important role in every phase of municipal development. It was the first capital of the extensive Province of Zambales that extended from Cape Bolinao to Olongapo, until Sta. Cruz, and later, Iba took his honor from her. 
 
 In the course of time, Masinloc, gave birth to two other municipalities, Palauig and Candelaria, when in the first case seventeen families from Masinloc migrated to and founded Palauig, and in the later, the important barrio of San Vicente, in 1870, was given its decree of independence and made a separate municipality under the new appellation of Candelaria. A little later, Candelaria was reincorporated to Masinloc until 1905, when it finally maintained a separate existence up to now. The ancestors of the Eliazos, Valverdes, Garcias, Lesacas, Medinas and others, of Santa Cruz, Botolan, and Iba, all came from Masinloc.

Apo Reef is regarded as one of the world’s best diving locations. We will make a total of 3 dives today, 2 day dives and a night dive for those qualified. You can look forward to some spectacular dives with visibility of up to 40 m or better. The reef begins at five meters depth, descending to approximately 40 m. The first dive will be a check out dive where you will be asked to demonstrate the 3 basic skills, mask clearing, regulator recovery and buoyancy control.

Northern Palawan

Day 3   Barracuda Lake-Siete Pecados (7 Islands)-Maquinit Hot Spring-Kayangan Lake

Divers will do 2 morning dives in Siete Pecados and Twin Peaks  and 1 dive at the Barracuda lake

1) Twin Peaks is named after the two limestone formations that break the surface of the water. We descend along one of the rock walls adorned with large gorgonians. Turtles are frequently seen here.

This dive is suitable for Advanced Open Water certified divers or higher.

2) Siete Pecados is  home to a great variety of unusual tropical fish and a very rich coral environment. Scientists found 2 new coral species here within the last 5 years . This dive is suitable for Advanced Open Water certified divers or higher.

3) Barracuda Lake – a unique and highly unusual dive site. It is a deep, volcanic in-land lake where the water temperature increases with depth – roughly 1ºC per metre. The water is clear, but aside from some small c fishin the shallower parts, the lake is devoid of aquatic life.

Divers come to appreciate the underwater pinnacles. However, an ancient old barracuda reportedly lives in  the lake, hence the name. The lake is accessible through a short climb over stairs placed over jagged rocks.

Day 4   Sangat Island –Culion

Divers will be diving 3 wrecks today. Irako will be the destination for their first early morning dive. After a heavy breakfast, divers will depart for 2 dives with a packed lunch. Sangat or Tangat Wreck and the Olympia Maru are their 2nd & 3rd dives.  Divers will meet up with the ship in Culion Island after the 3rd dive. Night Dive at Dynamite Point is available for those qualified.

Day 5   Calumbuyan  & North Cay Islands

The Akitsushima is the one true warship of the Japanese Fleet that we will be visiting today. A Sea Plane tender, the crane lies in the sand not far from the hull, while an Anti Aircraft gun can be found right next to the deck lying on the sandy sea floor. Around the wreck is one of the few areas where divers can see Sea-whips in the  shape of a harp.

The second dive of the day will be at the freighter “Taiei Maru”. The ship now rests on the side. It was hit by three torpedoes that all went through the same hole. The gigantic hole is now visible at 14 metres depth. Inside the ship, the two large engine boilers can be seen. The top side of the wreck is completely overgrown with corals,  which attract plenty of crocodile fish. The afternoon dive will be at one of Calumbuyans beautiful reefs. Expect to find Coral bommies with colonies of giant sized grape corals.

At 6 p.m. it is time for a night dive. We will explore North Cay , where we may see octopuses on the hunt and big moray eels leaving their shelters in search off food.

  

 

 

Day 6   Dibotonai

Upon arriving at Dibotonai, we will cross to Black Island by boat where we will dive at the remains of the 50 m long “Nanshin Maru”. It is a civilian tanker converted to carry special fuels in small isolated tanks for replenishment of land-based depots. The wreck rests upright on a sandy bottom at a maximum depth of 32 m. Visibility here is much better than at the other wrecks, 20-25 m or better is common. Near the wreck you can see plenty of scorpion fish, lion fish, groupers, and bat fish.

In the afternoon we will make a dive at the northern reef of Dibotonai. If we are lucky, we may encounter the nearly extinct dugong (sea cow), which sometimes comes to graze on the sea grass in the area. A wide variety of crabs, octopuses, surgeon fish and puffer fish inhabit the reef.

Day 7   Tara Islands, Dimakya Island Club Paradise 

We will be doing 2 morning dives on the hard and soft coral gardens of Tara Islands on our last day at sea.  Very little divers , or people for that matter, have been on its reefs  or beaches. You will be one of the lucky few. We will set sail for our last stop, Club paradise during lunch time. The last dive will be at Club paradise house reef .  This is a chance to dive with its resident sea turtle and  schooling jacks in the sea grass areas, as well as observe the myriad of macro critters such as frog fishes and nudibranchs  on the reef itself.

Day 8   Disembark Batangas International Port 11am (subject to weather and sea condition)
