ALLIGATOR IS., MALAMPAYA SOUND

62 miles from Sebang Village

ALLIGATOR ISLAND. 10°50.781N, 119°17.720E

Malampaya Sound is deep, 20 miles long and offers plenty of opportunity to shelter in dozens of well-protected anchorages.

This anchorage is recommended for most conditions. Ashore on the river is the small town of Calapa. Two other recommended hurricane holes are Taitai Bay, 5 miles northwest, where high surrounding hills guarantee calm waters and 8 miles further north, toward Endeavour Passage, is the Pirate’s Hole at 10°56.800N, 119°19.500E .
