Going to Honda Bay is just several minutes land trip from downtown Puerto Princesa City. There is a single level building where one can buy the tickets to hire a boat (PHP800.00 the whole day, maximum of 3
islands as of March 2005). Masks, snorkels and fins can also be rented from this office. When the winds are strong, expect to get wet in the boat. It is about an hour of boat ride to Snake Island.

Cottages are free at Snake Island but you can give any amount as donation. We asked one local to grill us a big "pampano" for P80.00. We brought our own lunch. Swimming galore. You can buy some bread at the sari sari store there and do some fish feeding. But be careful, there is also an 8 inch triggerfish participating the the fish feeding!
Surprisingly, you can see schools of reef fish and clams at such a shallow water.

After the island hopping, one can either choose to shower also at the ticketing office for P20.00. Or since you are a bit dried up from the boat trip, forego with the shower and just shower in your hotel.

This is island is fun to go to for family outing.
