We ended up in Talisayin cove due to logistical error between the travel agent and the booking website. We were already in Zambales that time and we were given the option to proceed with a small group booked in Talisayen instead of the original Nagsasa/Anawangin...More

I have contacts for Talisayin only (there are only specific boats that can take you there). For other islands, any boatman will do.
