“I don’t want to swim and get drenched in water because of my outfit. I also want to stay dry for the whole duration of the Island Tour.”, says me. The lady ,who me and my friends approached in paying the fees for snorkeling , told me that the corals were so pretty, there are so many fishes and the cemetery is one of a kind attraction in the whole world. With my friends cheering me on and them saying, ” You were the one who chose Camiguin as our trip and then you don’t wanna swim?”, my decision changed in an instant.

TRAVEL GUIDE TO SUNKEN CEMETERY
Have you ever wonder what lies beneath the sunken cemetery?
Today, the Sunken Cemetery is perhaps the most photographed attraction in the province, especially when set against a sunrise or sunset. It is the only cemetery in the world that is placed under the sea with many corals surrounding it.
There are two crosses found in the area. One has sunk and the other one was recently built. The white cross stands about 6 meters in height.
I have never imagine up until now (while I am writing) that the word cemetery itself is very scary. Flowers and candles are nowhere present in the vicinity.
A guide will help you reach that cross or cemetery when snorkeling. Also a boat can be rented if you do not want to be soaked in seawater.
It did not occur to me that I will be seeing the Giant Clam while diving. I pictured that it can be easily seen without diving or getting drenched. I totally forgot about this magnificently big creature. It did not disappoint me! IT DID NOT!!!
Sadly, I did not take any picture of the giant clam because our GoPro suddenly reported that the SD card’s full. But, I assure you it is very worth your time.
P.S. Do not touch the giant clams.
CORALS AND FISHES
The lady in the paying area at the catarman pasil reef did not disappoint. From fishes, clams to corals, there are so many to see and touch.
Seeing it from the picture does not give me any goosebumps but looking it directly with my own two eyes is a different story and one that I will treasure forever and keep it deep in my memories. Plus I get to see nemo!!
OLD SUNKEN CEMETERY
The one we step into is the old and sunken cemetery. It was not easy to swim that far because there were corals everywhere and waves were present.
We did not missed this opportunity to have our picture taken with the sunken cemetery and of course with the Mount Hibok Hibok as the background.
