Underwater Photos of Snorkeling in Hundred Islands Alaminos Pangasinan

I have so much love for snorkeling! Everytime I go on island hopping I ask for a snorkeling site.

Snorkeling in Hundred Islands National Park was definitely worth the trip and the day tour fee of course. I would like to commend Victor, our tour guide, he was wonderful! He took us to the coral garden in fact he snorkeled with us and I wish every boat guide was like him. I did wrote a post about him, if it interests you please read Recommended Boatman for Island Hopping in Hundred Islands.

Now the pictures of our snorkeling! It's not much but it's a glimpse of how it's like:
