Last February 19th, I went on a trip to Zambales to check out the famous Anawangin Cove, Nagsasa Cove and Capones Island. I went with Ed, Antonio and Teresa, Antonio’s wife.

Before I share the wonderful adventure I had with new found friends, let me just insert this quick post about our scary boat trip going to Nagsasa Cove 😆

Being reported as less crowded, I preferred to camp out at Nagsasa Cove and convinced my companions of the plan. I was glad they agreed to this and after spending some time exploring Anawangin Cove, we headed to Nagsasa Cove to camp for the night.

Nagsasa Cove is twice as far as Anawangin Cove, which is why a few prefer to go to this place. What caught me off guard was the boat trip going to this part of Zambales.

I decided to take a video of our boat ride to showcase the beautiful mountain ranges of Zambales. I wasn’t aware that what lies after the mountain ranges I was recording was Nagsasa Cove. And what transpired within that time was wickedly scary.

I was busy recording the mountain ranges and I failed to notice the commotion ongoing because of the sudden change of the waves in that area.

Like the rest of them, I was just relieved that we were able to make it to Nagsasa Cove in one piece. The weather was perfectly fine that day. But you should expect rough waves like these if you pass by this area going to and from Nagsasa Cove.

    • Gotta agree with his. These waves are nothing compared to the waves of a Calaguas boat ride. And much longer, too. The trip is aroind 1.5-2 hours one way.

      But that hasn’t stopped me from returning to the island thrice in the past three years. I’ll return again this summer.

      • I haven’t been to Calaguas yet and I’ve heard that the waves there are wilder compared to those in Nagsasa. I guess I just have to buy a dry bag if I head to that side of the country 😆 Thanks for visiting Lex 😉

  7. Haha. I can totally relate. It’s the longest 2 hours boat ride I experienced. Funny thing was, my friends were actually laughing and taking photos while the boat was frantically dancing on big waves. Kainis lang. ;p
