It was a very typical boat ride, we passed Ariel’s Point (formerly Batason Point) , touted as the best dive site in Aklan. Best stop over for scuba divers, snorkelers, cliff board divers, excursionist and nature enthusiasts.  Batason point boast for its fantastic location and a mountain that meets the sea, making it a fine mountain resort and a dive site rolled into one.
