The lakes in Coron Island have a thermocline/halocline where the freshwater in the upper layer and saltwater in the lower layer meet. If you freedive to 45 feet or so, you can clearly see the line separating the waters and feel the temperature rise when you hit the saltwater. Like magic (or science!).

Enjoy one last meal with your adventure crew before concluding your trip.
