General Luna in Siargao Island is a place for a cheap and expensive restaurant, hotels, and resorts. You can also avail of the surfing lessons here because it is near Cloud 9.
From Sandy Feet resort we were fetched by our tour operator using 2 tricycles. And we went to General Luna Market near the port where our boat for the tour is waiting for us. The first tour that we avail was the Bucas Grande Tour and 3 other island tours.
It was early in the morning, 6AM and we arrived at the port by 630AM. It was almost 7AM when we left. It was a 3 hours boat ride. Our group was diverse; we got a 10-year-old kid as the youngest and almost a senior citizen as the oldest. We were 10 in the group.
We tried to entertain ourselves during the boat ride. We also enjoyed the view of the surroundings while inside the boat. And sometimes we just sleep. For a while, it also rained hard before reaching the first part of the tour which is Bucas Grande.
Sohoton Cove National Park is located in the Bucas Grande, Socorro, and Surigao Del Norte. It is the home natural wonders such as caves, lakes, cove, karst, and limestones.
The first stop was the Sohoton Cove Tourist Information, the gateway to the Sohoton Cove National Park. From here you will see the beautiful Titikan Lagoon.
We transferred to a small boat with 6 people capacity with our two tour guides and boatman. We passed by the Sohoton Cove which is called because of its meaning which is to pass through a small opening. During high tide, it is not accessible.
We passed by a rock formation which is called horsetail, It is one of the famous landmarks inside Sohoton Cove.
The first activity was Hagukan Cave, a small luminous cave which is like an underground pool and accessible during low-tide. It is also called snoring cave as the sound of the snoring waves.
The second stop is a diving spot in called Magkukuob Cavern. The person needs to go inside waist-level water in the cave and walk inside a dry path of rock formations. To exit the cave, you need to cliff dive and plunge to 12 feet above the water.
Jelly Fish Sanctuary
We went back to the gateway and transferred to a small boat good for 2 people and 1 boatman and went to the jellyfish sanctuary.
We went back to the Sohoton Cove Tourist Center to enjoy our lunch. There are many other places to go here like Crystal Cave, Bolitas Cave, Tundan Cave, Bubon Group of Islets, Club Tara Resort, and Bubon beach. But you need a whole day or more to explore all.
