Renting from French Kayak owner
I rented a kayak from the shop (the owner is a Frenchman) under O.G.G. Pensione for P$1,000 per day. In the afternoon, we (me, my guide and several other kayakers) were stuck on the beach opposite Bukal island because of the sudden violent wind (a typhoon was approaching). We were resued by a pumpboat in the late evening . The rescue crew who risked their lives struggling for several hours in the wind and darkness to save us was only paid P$1,500. However, the kayak owner charged me P$2,000 for the loss of a life jacket (which was not really my fault, as I swam across from Bukal island to the beach on Cudlao island, and my guide was supposed to carry everything over in the kayak). The kayak owner also collected P$500 from each of the four kayakers who had been rescued to pay the rescue team. Very unfair!
