“Great things are done when men and mountains meet. This is not done by jostling in the street.” ~William Blake
Elated over the luminous emerald color of water inside the Hagukan Cave, we hop in to our motorboat and continue passing through the clear waters inside Sohoton Cove. Four minutes past and we saw this cliff wall with a wooden plank tied into the roots and branches of some trees and it looked like a jump board and my guess did not fail me, the guide told us that is where our exit is as we go outside the cave. A fifteen feet jump into the water.

Who cares about being afraid of height, almost all jumped right into the waters anyway except me who was busy at the cave entrance for some shoot. The R tours documented the adventure anyway, all of them jumped.
Outside the cave entrance on its walls are barnacles, unique colored crab, and some crawling shell covered creature unknown to me.
The cave is not as wide like the Hagukan chamber. The water is just below the knee as we ventured deeper into the cave, a steep climb with the guide of large rock holding for us to use to get into the top and the next is individually history. Heheh
The jumped must be properly coordinated as the water is shallow near its cliff wall, one should jump farther. It really is a way of overcoming fear as some do not know much how to swim or afraid to jump but the guides are there to assist right away seconds after the jump.
