Palawan Blue Water Sea Kayaking: Overnight Island Camping


In February 2006, Kris, Kristen, and I loaded up our sea kayaks and paddled out from El Nido on a perfect sunny afternoon. We planned to do a loop of about 30 miles, traversing the amazing karst limestone islands of the Bacuit archipelago. We almost finished the loop. But unfortnately a huge storm darkened the sky and threatened to blow us to Malaysia, across the South China Sea. Luckily we were rescued by a passing fishing boat (one of Kris and Kristen's neighbors). This gallery covers the highlights of the island hopping adventure, and also includes a few shots from another overnight sea kayak paddling trip my brother Preston and I took to Dilumacad Island near El Nido.
