    My gf and I made this ride from the Danao area north up past Bogo and to the tip of Cebu and over to Malapascua Island ... Beautiful, beautiful island but really too small for the Husky because just a few walking paths for the Habal 2x bikes and walking ... But it was a beautiful place ... Cottages ~600P per night ... white sand beach and crystal clear water ... really over the top ...


    Here are a few BRGY. along the way to the island ...
    Starting with Bantayan

    I really had no idea what was about to happen but the boat captain and his crew loaded the Husky on his boat by rolling it over the rocks you see in the back round and on to the boat ... Initially, it was really scarey but these guys were really careful and good at the loading ... Real professionals!

    After a short ride, maybe 45 minutes or so, we can see Malapascua!

    It was crazy ...we were fixing a price for the crew when all at once, they loaded the bike and took off and I just jumped in with the bike.. Eva had a ride in a separate
    dingy... U can see the water is no more than 3 feet deep here but she was a little nervous without me because she cannot swim ..
