Our jump off point was Vinzons, but you can also choose Paracale in case. We had to rent the whole banca for the five of us. If I remember we paid somewhere between PHP2000-PHP2500. If you want to save some costs, join another group so you can split the costs among more persons, just agree on the pick up time heading back. Just note that these are not passenger boats, they are fishermen's boats so do not expect comfortable seating for the 1.5-hour boat ride.
All aboard! Here we go.
Scenic Views En Route to Calaguas
My Oh My! Hello, Calaguas!
Good Morning Bagasbas!
A friendly tip: do not buy your souvenirs here. Get them at the shops in the city center as the price triples in Bagasbas souvenir shops as compared to the city center.
My verdict: Visit Calaguas as soon as you can before it becomes too commercialized. As of this writing, there is a high end hotel being constructed there so prices may skyrocket pretty soon.
