    Getting sunburnt

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Remember to bring sunblock if you are afraid of becoming too tanned or burnt as the sun can get intense during the day. However, such weather is also the best for diving or snorkelling as visibility will be better. Usually, I will bring sunblock but I will often bee to lazy to apply. So most of the time, I will become very tanned after a trip.

    Seasickness

    If you are kind who knows that you will get seasick, do not eat too much and take seasickness pills before you get on the boat. I only got seasickness once before although I been on many such trips. However, the water was choppy and the journey was slow and long to the islands, I got seasick on the first day. It was only after the first snorkelling that I felt better, as all my breakfast came out. Luckily, I was fine after that for the rest of the journey.

    Ticket

    Similian Islands

    As the Similian Islands are a National Park you're required to buy a ticket at the mainland to enter the islands. Most organized boattrips have this fee included in their price, but some don't, and if some guards show up on the islands and ask you for your ticket, you're responsible for it - not the boat company that brought you there. You then have to pay an expensive fine...

    Coral

    Similian Islands

    It is very important to follow some basic rules when snorkeling or scuba diving in these waters. I could summarize all the norms in two: do not touch and do not take away anything! Divers must be very careful no to touch the bottom of the sea with the fins: corals are delicate creatures and even a small cloud of sand can be lethal. It is also very important not to take away anything from the beaches.
