Giant Clams in Camiguin

Way back in Philippines that's when I started snorkeling in Camiguin Cantaan White beach. Where you can find Giant Clams, it's only 22 km from Mambajao. We rented a motorbike to tour half of the Island and went to the said beach. Wow very Peaceful place and prestine, payment for entrance foreigners have different entrance fee. Before we start our activity we headed first at the breeding center and the education facility with an exhibition. And rented snorkeling ang goggles. From the beach you see the marked sanctuary which is actually the nursery.

It was fun experienced to observed the movements of the clamps which is bit scary. It was my second time snorkeling there, I'm sure if you try it you will be pleased of what you will see. It's worth going there even if it's bumpy road going to Cantaan, but once when you arrive there it's paradise!. I enjoyed it a lot, I'm planning to go back there again next year.

How to catch fish

I admit it, at first I don't like fishing which i find it boring. But suddenly I thought it's fun, like when i watched t.v a teen age girl catched a big big fish. And I realized wow it's really rewarding if you catch fish specially huge one. For the beginners like me if you like try fishing here the essential item for fishing. 1.) A fishing rod and reel. You can get this already put together and strung with line at a department store, sporting goods department or at the bait and tackle shop.2.) A lure/ bait such as fishing worms, we buy at wallmart it's very cheap there. 3.) You will need a bobber or float if using worms. You will also need a bucket which you can fill with water at the lake, pond or river you plan to go fishing at. This is to keep your fish in once caught. If you think you may catch something pretty big you will want a stringer instead to string the fish on.4.) You will want to dress comfortably in clothes not easily snagged by hooks.

Wind Suring is Fun

It's nice watching people playing waves on the water, like the wind surfing. A lot of wind surfers here in Maui because of the wind pick up, it's very entertaining watching then playing big waves and starting surfing. It looks like very dangerous like for me I don't do that kind of stuff, but I'm open of challenges that someday I can do that or should I say before I die. Considered the greatest spot for windsurfing in the world, it is definitely the epicenter of the sport in Maui. Nowhere else will you get rollicking waves mixed with perfect offshore winds. If you are interetsted or planning vacation here in maui there are sites for windsurfing rentals: Maui pro center, Maui Van's, Maui wind surf, Alternate Hwaii, Kanahakai.

My favorite "Opakapaka fish"

When I first arrived here in Maui my husband brought me one of the restaurant in Kihei " Da Kitchen". Because I'm a fish lover I tried the Opakapaka fish or pink snapper. It's very tasteful and I like on how they baked it. It is a seasonal fish bottom and there is a special method to catch opakapaka fish. I can't wait to catch opakapaka. I know it is sounds ambitious but who knows I can catch one.

By air or by Sea?

I took a Super ferry once from Oahu to Maui. A big Catamaran ship 350 feet by 80 feet, operating daily between Oahu and Maui . I had a sea sickness at that time because of the strong current. I think it is better morning much calmer than afternoon. Personally I really like the ship very clean, spacious. And benefits for those big people the most, you can take your car that way it is more convenient. Travel time big difference half an hour by air, and three hours by sea. For schedules and fares and to make reservation go to
