The Coron package with island hopping tour from Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours includes a trip to the Twin Lagoon. These lagoons are enclosed by the walls of Mt. Calis. A wall of rock separates the two lagoons. To get to either of the lagoons, you have to snorkel your way through a hole if the tide is low enough. However, the tide is high, you have the choice to kayak through the lagoons.
The water at the inner lagoon is brackish. This means, there is a mix of salt and fresh water in the area. In some part of the lagoon, the water is warm while in other parts, the water may be cold. Also, some area have crystal clear water and some have murky water.
Another site included in a Coron package with island hopping tour is Siete Pecados. The reef is named as such because it is surrounded by 7 islets. Don’t forget to bring some bread so you can feed the fish when you snorkel in the area.
