Roaming Around Camiguin: Day 2 - Kibila Giant Clams Conservation and Nursery
After our trip to Mantigue Island, our motorcycle driver brought us to Kibila Giant Clams Conservation and Nursery off the town of Guinsiliban. Again, we were supposed to go snorkeling here (yes, with the giant clams) but the current was raging so we felt it was not safe to go. Better to go here on a hot summer day when the water is calm and quiet.

You can also rent snorkeling gears and lifevests here but what I don't understand is that they will still charge you half of the price of the rental of the gears even if you bring your own. That's on top of the snorkeling fee. Huh? This for me and head on highway robbery.

There's another tank where the baby clams are. Guests are restricted to touch any of these for safety reasons.

Hubby ordered buttered prawns (giant at that), grilled squid, rice and a liter of soda. Price was ok at Php 400+ for 3 persons. The taste was worth the price (imagine having lunch or dinner at Dampa) as the seafoods here were so fresh. The squid, while large in size, was cooked tender and succulent. The prawns were divine.
