Looc Looc Fish Sanctuary
There's a Lighthouse in the Middle of the Sea And a Sanctuary with Friendly But Lazy FishWednesday, May 02, 2012Ryan Mach
"Can we go near the lighthouse?" I asked one of the tour guides during our visit at the Looc Fish Sanctuary.
"What happens to the fish when they get old? Do you catch them?" I asked the same guide again, while taking photos of different fishes that excitedly bounced off the water.
From the airport in Tugdan, Alcantara, take a jeep bound for Looc. There are also motorcycles you can rent.
Go to the tourism office at the town's plaza. You will get an instruction where to find the Bantay Dagat office at the pier.
Better yet, ask any local you find in town on how to get to the pier.
There's an office at the pier where you pay for the boat ride to the sanctuary (100php per person).
There are also masks and snorkels you can rent (50php).
It's only a 5-10 minute boat ride to the sanctuary from the pier.
Bring crackers and junk food so you can feed the fish.
You can borrow a life vest at the floating raft.
Be responsible, don't throw your trash in the water.
