Woke up real early for the most awaited activity; Swim and play with the dolphins!
Hurriedly took my breakfast and joined a family who will be going to the Dolphin Island also. They're a huge group but only 5 of them went to the Island.
Travel time is approximately 15minutes. It was not literally an Island but a stilt structure that houses a restaurant, a gymnasium, and pens for the dolphins.
Boat fare: 300php/round trip
Additional 40/pax if less than 10
