5 times higher environmental fee for foreigners than for Filipinos is a clear sign of the level of greed of local authorities.
Add to that $50 environmental fee for foreign suckers for diving in apo reef to get a complete picture.

The initial booking was not the simplist, but good old PayPal made a deposit easier, Denis sent an immediate response which was a great confirmation. Once in sablayan, the trip to the Island could not be easier.. Make sure you have 250 pesos in cash to pay the ferry man as on Pandan you don't really see or use money...
